Among Honor smartphones, flagships are in the Numerical Series; Magic series means exploration; other series such as V Series and I Series have unique features. However, as for the most competitive models, you can find them in X Series. 

Again, the strategic processor, Kirin 810, has joined the line-up of X series.


Before speaking of the new processor, Kirin 810, let's look at the appearance of Honor 9X.


I've got an Honor 9X in charm red. After the wave of the popularity of iridescent color, the pure color with shading is in fashion.

Honor 9X features the rhythmical texture of the diamond.


As the light changes, the pattern on the back of Honor 9X changes continuously. However, the diamond shape is the basic, and numerous diamond shapes form the letter "V" or "X," which looks well-organized.



Honor 9X has a screen size of 6.59 inches, a resolution of 2340 x 1080, and a screen-to-body ratio of 92%. 

Thanks to the pop-up camera module, the front screen looks attractive after turned on. 

The width of the three borders of Honor 9X is the same and quite traditional. Each corner of the screen is a big round, and the visual transition is natural. 



For most men who don't like selfies, the pop-up camera is a useful invention. After all, they don't use it most of the time, so it's better to hide it instead of occupying part of the top and affecting the overall appearance.



The rear cameras of Honor 9X are vertically aligned. The camera alignment is quite common among Huawei Honor smartphones. On the back, 9X has a dual-camera setup (9X PRO features triple camera). The flashlight is at the bottom, and the primary camera is a 48MP image sensor. 

Different from Honor 8X which has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, Honor 9X has a side-mounted one, which is integrated with the on/off button.

As in-display fingerprint recognition is prevalent, multiple Honor smartphones use the side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Although the solution doesn't look less advanced, honestly, the unlocking is fast.

How fast is it? No matter how long you touch the button, the phone will be unlocked as soon as you touch it correctly.



The exciting news is that Honor 9X has a USB Type-C interface, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Both the frame and back of Honor 9X are made of plastic whose texture is different from metal and glass. However, you can distinguish the material by glancing at it, but by holding the phone in hand. 

Of course, using plastic materials facilitates processing, so the back of Honor 9X can be turned into 3D curved, which provides a comfortable grip.

Meanwhile, as plastic is lighter than metal and glass, it makes the 6.59-inch Honor 9X less heavy.



Compared to what you can see, I believe that everyone is more interested in what they can't see from the appearance of Honor 9X.

That's right! As Kirin 810 is one of the four processors which boast 7nm process technology, we're looking forward to knowing its performance.

After running the benchmarks, Honor 9X got scores as good as the Huawei P20, the flagship smartphone last year. It also means that Kirin 810 SoC offers nearly the same performance as the previous flagship chip, Kirin 970.


Another reason why the performance of the Honor 9X is comparable to that of Huawei P20 is that the non-compromising flash memory.

According to AndroBench, the read speed and write speed of Honor 9X are 826MB/s and 194MB/s respectively, consistent with the performance of UFS2.1.

The benefits of using a 7nm process node are better temperature control and energy efficiency. That's why Honor 9X excels in cooling performance.

When running some heavy mobile games, you can enjoy all kinds of special effects at the highest settings.

In UHD and at high frame rate, Honor 9X can run smoothly without dropping frames during gaming. Besides, you don't need to worry about connectivity and stability.

As for the heat dissipation, it is also relatively excellent. I played three games at 24 degrees Celsius, and the temperature of Honor 9X only rose slightly, far from being hot.


As the 6GB+64GB version of Honor 9X is at only $299, Kirin 810 chip alone is worth the price.

Of course, you can also choose the 6GB+128GB version, which costs $349.

The price of Honor 8X in last year is the same as Honor 9X. Well, the upgraded processor, interface, and fingerprint sensor are praiseworthy.

In short, the competition of smartphones around $300 is fierce. With the engagement of Honor 9X, the game has become more interesting, offering consumers another good choice.
