Honor Launches the 9X in the UAE

Global smartphone brand HONOR today launched the HONOR 9X, the latest member of its powerful X-series that boasts next-generation technology in design, photography, and performance. Armed with a 48MP Triple Camera and a 6.59” HONOR FullView Display, this feature-laden smartphone offers an extraordinary user experience at an accessible price point of AED 999. The device stands out due to its stunning X-shaped design and pop-up camera mechanism.

Extraordinary Photography

The launch of the HONOR 9X attests to the brand’s commitment to bring a flagship smartphone experience to everyone.  The HONOR 9X, equipped with a 48MP Triple Camera that features an f/1.8 aperture and ½-inch sensor, allows users to capture their extraordinary moments in clarity. 

Additionally, the 9X also features the AIS Super Night Mode which produces excellent quality photos even in dimly-lit environments, and the inclusion of a 120° Super Wide Angle Camera helps users capture more in every single shot. 

FullView Display and Dynamic X design

The front of the HONOR 9X boasts an immersive 6.59” FullView Display, HONOR’s full-screen display technology with no notch or cut-out on the screen, providing a zero distraction viewing experience. Its LCD screen is one of the largest displays on an HONOR device with an impressive 91% screen-to-body ratio. This is possible thanks to the pop-up mechanism of the front camera, that retracts back to the device when not needed.

Taking things even further in terms of design, the HONOR 9X’s back panel is made of over 100,000 geometric diamond-cut tiles that reflect and refracts light to create the unique Dynamic X Design. To meet users’ sophisticated aesthetics demands, the HONOR 9X comes in a dazzling Sapphire Blue and the all-time favorite Midnight Black.

“At HONOR, we believe in staying at the forefront of technological innovation and smartphone design in order to provide the best-in-class experiences for our users,” said Chris Sun Baigong, President of HONOR Middle East and Africa. 

Other key features of the Honor 9X include –

  1. Dual 3D Curved Panel with a 8.8mm thick frame
  2. 3.5mm Headphone Jack
  3. USB Type-C connector
  4. Pop-up Selfie Camera
  5. 4,000 mAh All-Day Battery
  6. 6GB of RAM
  7. 128GB internal storage which can be expanded to 640GB with a 512GB microSD card 

Adding to the user experience, HONOR also announced its partnership with Free Fire in the Middle East & Africa region, the popular premium mobile battle royale game. For players looking for a highly immersive and enjoyable social battle royale game on their HONOR 9X smartphones, Free Fire will be available for download from the HUAWEI AppGallery with the added benefits of a gift pack and HUAWEI points. 

Honor also announced its next generation of wearable tech in the form of the Honor Band 5. With newly added AI functionality, the Honor Band 5 will be the perfect partner for the Honor 9X, as the pair will drive Honor’s master plan of “1+8+N”, which implies one HONOR Smartphone, eight categories of in-house devices and indefinite accompanying products from its partners, at the annual IFA 2019. Looking ahead, the company is set to introduce a greater variety of smartphones and wearables to enable its consumers to lead more connected, frictionless and intelligent lives.
