When Honor announced the 9X will be the successor of the 8X series, company executives proudly said the Honor 8X is the best-selling smartphone for the Huawei brand. It sold in 15 million units, 10 million of them in the first 173 days, and now it appears that the Honor 9X lineup is about to smash this record in pieces.
It is hardly a surprise why these phones sell so well. They come with the latest 7nm Kirin 810 chipset and with plenty of memory options from 4/64 GB all the way to 8/256 GB. You get either two or three cameras, with the Pro sporting an extra ultra-wide-angle shooter.
The big 6.59” screen is unobstructed by any notches or camera cutouts, with the 16 MP selfie shooter coming with a motorized pop-up mechanism.
The specs might sound attractive, but the price tag and the slight hint of patriotism is pushing the sales of the homemade Honor 9X - it starts from CNY1,499 ($210) and goes as high as CNY2,499 ($335), depending on what color and memory combo you select.
