The HONOR 9X PRO sports a 6.59-inch bezel-less screen with a screen-to-body ratio of up to 92%. The rear cover is a 3D gradient color glass and comes in two colors: Phantom Purple and Magic Night Black.
The power button and fingerprint sensor are integrated into one for easier use.
The phone comes with the familiar 3.5 mm headset jack.
The front camera is a brand new pop-up design and provides intelligent drop protection, dustproof, waterproof, and anti-magnetic interference functions.
At the back, from top to bottom, there is a 2 MP depth camera, a 48 MP UHD camera, and an 8 MP ultra wide-angle camera.
The 48 MP primary camera uses a 1/2'' sensor and HONOR-developed algorithm for night photography. The highest ISO sensitivity is 102400, allowing the camera to take photos even in extremely low light and dark conditions.

The Ark Compiler improves the app execution efficiency by 29%, system smoothness by 13%, and system response by 32%.
In addition to these, the phone also boasts features like Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.1, upgraded AI-powered communications, and more. Packed with new features alongside some of its signature designs, the HONOR 9X PRO is a fantastic budget option and is well worth the price tag.
