The HONOR 9X Pro has officially received an official launch date. According to the brand’s official site, the phone will be made available to the masses from 19 March onwards.
In addition to the HONOR 9X Pro, HONOR will also be making its MagicBook available on the same day. Unfortunately, there’s still no official price tag for either device. At this point, it’s clear that the brand will only reveal that bit of information either as we get closer to the availability date or on launch day itself.
To quickly recap, the HONOR 9X Pro that we’re getting runs on Huawei’s 7nm Kirin 810 SoC, comes with 6GB RAM, has 256GB expandable storage, and a 5.69-inch Full HD+ display. Around the back, the phone’s main triple-camera module comprises a 48MP main sensor, a 2MP sensor, and an 8MP wide-angle. Like the HONOR 9X, the phone’s selfie camera is motorised and is hidden at the top of the phone.
Powering the phone is a 4000mAh battery. Software-wise, the phone runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. On that note, it should be noted that the HONOR 9X Pro will also be the first HONOR device to ship without Google Mobile Service (GMS) and instead run on Huawei’s own home-grown Huawei Mobile Services (HMS).
