Honor 9X and 9X Pro: retractable selfie camera, Kirin 810, side fingerprint scanner and other details

The announcement of the new Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro is scheduled for July 23.

Not wanting to let the public get bored while waiting, the CEO of the company quietly puts images of devices on the network.

Images are interesting. First, the company once again came up with a new design option for the rear panel. They are now almost all iridescent, but only Huawei / Honor has such a variety of patterns.

Also teasers confirmed the assumption that the generation of Honor 9X received a retractable front camera.

Finally, the official renders of Honor 9X appearedand Honor 9X Pro, allowing you to visually assess the difference between them. Honor 9X has a double main camera and a modest black color. It is not customary for a company to offer only one color option, so perhaps you should expect others to appear, but for the time being it is only available for pre-order.

Honor 9X Pro got a triple photomodule and thatThe most interesting coloring with a big X on the back. Also officially announced that the Honor 9X Pro is built on the basis of the brand-new Kirin 810 chipset - the first “middling”, which was created using a 7-nanometer process technology.

At the same time in the materials TENAA appearedDescriptions of the Honor HLK-TL00 / AL00 and HLK-AL10 models, which are supposedly Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro, respectively. According to data gathered from this source, smartphones are almost the same: the dimensions of both are 163.1x77.2x8.8 mm, the screens are IPS 6.59 ″ fullHD +, the batteries are 4000 mAh. One has three versions of memory: 4 + 64 GB, 6 + 128 GB and 8 + 256 GB, the second - HLK-AL10 - only two, 6 + 128 GB and 8 + 256 GB. Both have an 8-core processor with a frequency of 2.2 GHz.

The difference is in the cameras. The Honor HLK-TL00 / AL00 (presumably Honor 9X) has a dual main camera with a resolution of 48 MP + 2 MP and a front-facing 16 MP. Honor HLK-AL10 (Honor 9X Pro) has the same selfie camera, but its main one is triple: 48 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP.

A curious question is where the fingerprint scanner models are. On the official images it is not visible, therefore - on-screen or on the side. If the models found in the TENAA database really correspond to the Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro, then there is only one option - lateral placement, they don’t know how to build a scanner into the IPS screens. For Honor, this will not be the first such experience; a side scanner of prints is already available in Honor 20 and 20 Pro models.

Prices have not yet been announced.
