Announcement. Honor X9 5G is a cute smartphone for “not China” with weak cameras

Honor X9 5G smartphone launched in Malaysia.In this case, we have an almost exact copy. The same device is sold in China under the name Honor X30. The only differences are that the “Chinese” has more colors and variations in the amount of memory, but there is no NFC module. Well, the software is different. In China, the Magic UI 5.0 shell without Google is installed on the smartphone. Outside of China, there will be Magic UI 4.2 with support for Google services.

About the characteristics.

The chipset here is Qualcomm Snapdragon 695. In AnTuTu we are waiting for around 400 thousand points. Those. we have a good average.

Memory. A single variety has been announced for Malaysia. 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Support for memory cards is not mentioned, so most likely it is not here.

Large IPS screen - 6.81″.As far as you can tell from the pictures, the bezels on the top and sides are vanishingly thin. They are a little thicker underneath. The resolution is normal, 1080×2388 (385 ppi). High refresh rate - up to 120 Hz.

The battery is of a standard average capacity - 4800 mAh. Charging is obscenely fast - 66 watts.

Save money on cameras. By modern standards, the set is the simplest. The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP. At the back is a trio of 48 + 2 + 2 MP from the main camera, macro camera and depth sensor.

There is support for 4G and 5G networks, there is an NFC module. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side. Type-C and a fifth Wi-Fi are, of course, present.

I don’t see any information about the cost of Honor X9 5G yet. And the Chinese Honor X30 with the same amount of memory (8 + 128 GB) costs ¥1699 (₽25500, $267) in its native China.
