Honor 9X is set to arrive next week, but the Huawei subsidiary already revealed the design of the phone from the back. The Kirin 810-powered midranger will have three cameras on the back and a fingerprint scanner on the side, just like its flagship siblings Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro.
The device also appeared on TENAA with its full specs sheet, although the agency is yet to publish images. We see two phones with model numbers HLK-AL00 and HLK-TL00 which will have up to 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage and a microSD slot for up to 512 gigs more for all the memory you need.
Interestingly enough, we see a phone with three cameras on the back, while TENAA lists devices with only two shooters(48 MP main + 2 MP depth sensor), suggesting we might be looking at the upcoming 9X Pro in Honor’s Weibo post, while the specs sheet are linked to the vanilla 9X.
If we take the data at face value and the difference between the variants is only the amount of cameras, then the Honor 9X Pro will have a 6.59” LCD.
Other highlights include a battery with at least 3,900 mAh capacity, Android 9-based EMUI 9.0 (or probably 9.1) and a massive weight of 206 grams. The phone’s footprint is 163. 1 x 77.2 x 8.8 mm, making it an impressively big device for all the multimedia you might want.
We are expecting more details to follow in the upcoming days to the launch on July 23 that will take place in Xi’an, China.
Huawei seem to put micro SD in their more budget orientated devices. That's the trend these days, making more expensive phones that lack useful features that cheaper phones do have. Ie headphone jacks, micro SD
