Price and availability
The Honor X9 5G and 4G versions will be available in the UAE market through the Honor Online Store (opens in new tab), Amazon, Noon and all major retailers from 27th of May 2022.
The Honor X9 5G features 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256 GB storage options priced at AED 1,099 and AED 1,199 respectively. The Honor X9 4G has 8 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM and is priced at AED 999. The devices will be available in black or silver, and will be open for pre-order on 20th of May. Pre-order gift bundles for the Honor X9 feature Honor Earbuds 2 and Honor Care-Screen Protection for 6 Months (1 time free repair) as well as a free GCC warranty.
The Honor X9 5G has been designed with 1.05mm super-narrow bezels on both left and right frames, delivering a screen-to-body ratio of 94% for an immersive viewing experience. Featuring a 6.81-inch Honor FullView Display, the Honor X9 5G supports full high-definition of 2388x1080 pixels and 16.7 million colours, ensuring users can experience stunning visual effects, enhanced clarity and true-to-life colours while watching movies, browsing photos or gaming with friends.
Providing enhanced eye care for users to enjoy, the Honor X9 is also equipped with Honor Eye Comfort and TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification, reducing the proportion of harmful blue light to alleviate eye strain and fatigue, and adjusting the screen to show warmer colours for a more comfortable experience, even after extended periods of use.
Packed with a unique eBook Mode, which changes the screen to black and white, for a more immersive and focused reading, users who love to read for extended periods of time can enjoy a more comfortable reading experience.
The Honor X9 boasts an advanced memory capability, and is equipped with Honor RAM Turbo, an Honor technology solution that converts a small portion of Read Only Memory (ROM) into RAM allowing users to enjoy faster speeds, and an optimised user experience loading apps and content, and browsing online.
The device is equipped with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. With Honor RAM Turbo, 2GB of 128GB storage is converted to RAM, meaning the total effective RAM on the Honor X9 can be increased to 10GB (8GB + 2GB). Honor RAM Turbo takes it even further, maximising the additional RAM by compressing background apps, enabling the Honor X9 to simultaneously open more applications and keep more applications running in the background without compromising on efficiency.
When it comes to storage, Honor X9 5G comes with a huge 256GB storage, allowing users to get most of the device in regard to meeting all needs in their daily lifestyles and keeping all their favourites.
Battery and charging
Fast charging has become a must-have in smartphones. Honor’s 66W SuperCharge technology adopts a single-cell dual-loop battery design, creating a new fast charging innovation. The dual-loop approach significantly increases charging voltage and speed while the single-cell structure still enables a thin body size and low power loss when charging. Honor X9 5G delivers worry-free battery life and all-day connectivity. Thanks to 66W Honor SuperCharge, Honor X9 can be charged by 50% from flat in just 15 minutes or 81% in just 30 minutes.
Boosting performance to the maximum, the Honor X9 5G boasts low power consumption and a longer battery life for users to enjoy. Based on Honor testing, starting at a full charge, Honor X9 5G still shows 100% of the battery level after users brows social content or conduct an audio chat with friends for 15 minutes, outperforming other smartphones in the same category and delivering an unprecedented and powerful user experience.
