Immerse yourself in unmatched gaming experience with HONOR 9X!
It’s been more than a year since the immensely successful HONOR 8X launch last year, and lots of smartphone users are eagerly waiting for the successor to this incredible powerhouse of a phone.
Fortunately, as Master Yoda said (he didn’t): wait no more, we should, for the HONOR 9X is finally upon us.
True to the expectations it garnered over the year, HONOR 9X is a meaningful upgrade over the 8X in almost all aspects: a larger, brighter screen, notchless full-screen design, 48MP AI triple-camera setup, and a slew of internal optimisations and tuning as well.
One thing HONOR 9X raises above competitors in its price range, is its capabilities as a gaming device. One might think lots of corners have to be cut in order to achieve such impressive pricing, but you might be surprised at how much the 9X deliver at this end.
6.59-inch FullView display: the all-screen blessings
Even before you pick the 9X up, you will undoubtedly be drawn to the gorgeous, uninterrupted IPS FullView display of the smartphone.
A 6.59-inch screen is a sight to behold by itself, coupled with all-screen design that is a rarity in recent market trends of punchholes and waterdrop notches, this screen is truly an eye-catcher.
This factory-calibrated IPS panel is capable of very deep blacks and and provide different modes for the users intended usage: Normal sRGB mode for colour accuracy, and DCI-P3-tuned Vivid mode, which is perfect for gaming and multimedia consumption.
With its larger-than-life size, true all-screen design and vivid colours coming through when called for, HONOR 9X is among the best smartphone out there for gaming.
Larger screen works best for less-congested immersion, while the FullView design remove all possibilities of content being cut or hidden. The punchy colours and good contrast are definitely a boon when it comes to diving in your favourite mobile games as well.
4000 mAh battery delivers all-day gaming endurance
Despite its deceivingly thin profile and comfortable grip, HONOR 9X packs some real juices in it, namely a beefy 4000 mAh battery.
Combined with an efficient processor and all-the-way-to-the-root level of customisations and tweaks offered by HONOR and its EMUI 9.1, this smartphone blows the competition out of the water when it comes to battery endurance.
On average, users can expect up to 2 days of moderate usage with the 9X, and getting up to a whopping 8 hours of gaming time on it.
Mobile game aficionados no longer have to carry around a powerbank – or appropriately nicknamed, blood pack – in order to enjoy all-day gaming. I’m sure gamers will be rejoiced when they no longer have to lug around a heavy powerbank just to keep their smartphone alive between gaming sessions.
GPU Turbo 3.0 – The best gaming suite just got better
The gaming optimisation suite that started it all, GPU Turbo, got it’s 2nd major upgrade since it took the smartphone gaming scene by storm when it was released a couple of years ago.
With its newest iteration GPU Turbo 3.0, HONOR has once again set the bar for other similar competitors to catch up in the gaming department.
Besides expanding supported games library to over 50 games (including major hit titles like Fortnite and Knives Out), GPU Turbo 3.0 further improves their signature hardware-level optimisations such as faster touch responses, more stable frame rates, and lower power consumption.
Extra-large ROM for all your storage needs
HONOR’s newest Performance mode – easily accessible from the shortcut menu – conveniently commands extra raw CPU power when triggered, while the 6GB RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 ROM configuration ensures games run smoothly without hiccups. Storage can be expanded to up to 512GB with MicroSD card too.
Of course, gamer-friendly functions such as auto-muting notifications and screen recorder while gaming, or touch-area mapping are included in EMUI’s gaming suite, giving users maximum immersion and uninterrupted gaming experiences throughout their sessions.
AI Signal Enhancer makes sure gamers stay connected
Latency and network instability are the arch nemesis of gamers when it comes to competitive mobile gaming, and HONOR 9X comes prepared to keep it at a minimum.
Dubbed AI Signal Enhancer, the 9X is able to regain 4G and WiFi signals in environments that are prone to signal loss almost instantaneously, thanks to the use of AI and intelligent algorithms that are developed in-house specifically by HONOR developers.
48MP AI Triple Cameras
Besides gamer-centric features, HONOR 9X also comes with a well-received triple-camera setup at the back, with 48MP Sony sensor as the main shooter, accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a dedicated 2MP portrait camera.
With this impressive hardware setup and HONOR’s renowned AI post-processing and AI features, the 9X is able to output some really impressive photos, even under low light. Modes like AIS Super Night Mode, AI Video Stabilisation and 3D Portrait Lighting bring the camera experience to the next level.
The 16MP motorized selfie shooter is able to utilise most of these useful modes and AI functions too, giving users the best of both worlds when it comes to photography.
Last but not least, HONOR 9X, true to its HONOR lineage, has some of the fanciest back designs on the market. The iconic reflective-cum-refractive mesmerizer of a design is even more eye-catching this time round, forming a Sci-Fi looking stacked X patterns radiating from the centre by refracting light on different layers of the materials. Besides looking exquisite, it also gives a gamer-y feel, which fit the phone’s gaming prowess in a subtle way.
