Huawei Honor 9X Pro – Flagship Level of Strength
In July, Honor held a new product launch, officially launched the second half of the key product – 9X/9X Pro. If the Honor 20 series is the ending of the first half of the year, then the Honor 9X series officially opened the product plan for the second half of the year, becoming the most dazzling star products of this conference. Today we will take a look at the performance of all aspects of the Huawei Honor 9X Pro.
The Honor 9X Pro adopts a 6.59-inch full-screen design, the design of the pop-up front camera further increases the viewing area of the screen, so that the screen ratio reaches 92%. The screen resolution is 2340 × 1080, and the ultra-narrow bezel design can be seen very intuitively from the front. The use of the pop-up camera does bring a higher screen ratio to the full screen, but due to the internal structure, resulting in a compromise on the thickness of the body, the body size is 163.1 × 77.2 × 8.8mm.
The Honor 9X Pro features a double-sided glass body with a 3D phantom glass cover on the back. Through the refraction of light, you can also see the obvious “X” texture corresponding to it.
On the right side of the body, there are power button and volume button configured. This time Honor 9X series does not use in-display or rear fingerprint recognition, instead, it uses side fingerprint recognition technology, which is integrated on the power button. In addition to the pop-up camera, the top of the body also has a SIM card slot, and the bottom is a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C interface and speakers.
In terms of hardware, the Honor 9X Pro features Kirin 810 processor with 7nm process. Compared to the previous generation Kirin 710, this upgrade for the chip should be “beyond”. Honor officially stated that the 7nm process technology adopted by Kirin 810 is one of the only four 7nm mobile phone chips in the world.
In addition, the Kirin 810 processor also uses Huawei‘s self-developed DaVinci architecture NPU to surpass the Snapdragon 855 in AI performance. The Kirin 810’s GPU is a customized version of the Mail G52, 1080P Manhattan off-screen performance increased by 175% compared to the Honor 8X.
In terms of software, Honor 9X Pro is equipped with the latest EMUI9.1.1 system based on Android 9.0. The interface icon design adopts micro-realistic icon design, and the desktop layout icon also changes from the original 5 columns to 4 columns, the overall design of the interface is still simple.
On the battery side, the Honor 9X Pro smartphone has a 4000mAh high-capacity battery, relying on the good power consumption performance brought by the 7nm process technology, and the deep optimization of EMUI 9.1.1 in terms of power saving, the overall power consumption of the Honor 9X Pro is much lower than that of the previous generation.
8GB high-speed running memory and GPU Turbo3.0 revolutionary game acceleration technology let your mobile phone turn into a “game machine” at any time. The EMUI9.1.1 system adds the icing on the cake for performance and brings an expedite application experience.
Photography is still one of the core selling points of this Honor 9X series. Honor 9X Pro adopts rear triple camera with 48MP main camera + 8MP super wide-angle camera + 2MP depth camera, F1.8 large aperture, hypersensitive AI image engine, AIS handheld super night scene 2.0, and front 16MP camera, which supports portrait beauty and other features.
Honor made a breakthrough in the appearance design of the 9X series products, and upgraded the hardware at the same time, which is a sincere feedback to the user group. It comes with two versions of 128GB and 256GB ROM available on gearvita.
