The competition in the smartphone industry has gotten much stronger in recent years. Users are no longer satisfied with just a sleek appearance. The combination of form, competing pricing, together with the ability to offer feature-rich smartphones, has now become the deciding factor to buy or upgrade your smart device.

Honor just announced the launch of the Honor X9 5G, its latest strong all-rounder smartphone and the newest member of Honor’s reliable Honor X Series. It packs a raft of innovative flagship features, a beyond exceptional experience and extraordinary quality, all at an affordable price point that won’t break the budget. 

Honor X9 - Features

In the 5G era and with the popularisation of apps like games, videos and social media that consume huge amounts of power, there are new demands for mobile phone with powerful battery life and fast charging speeds. Today, with a quick 5 minutes of charging, users can enjoy 3.6 hours of watching videos on YouTube, 5.9 hours of calling, 2.9 hours of gaming or 3.8 hours of Facebook browsing.

One of the main features of a modern smartphone is its display and, on the Honor, X9 5G, you get a whole lot of it. Sized at a massive 6.81-inch FullView Display, the highest achieved among smartphones of the same grade and in the same category that feature a maximum 6.43” or 6.5” display.
