HONOR 9X's "AI Signal Enhancer": A Game-Changer for Gamers

Why is lagging on your phone such a common occurrence during gameplay – especially when you're holding the phone with both hands? Other intensive tasks may run smoothly, without a hitch, even when the signal isn't great. But for some reason, games are almost always highly compromised.

The answer may surprise you: it's related to the traditional antenna layout on smartphones – antennas along the top and bottom frames – precisely where you'd opt to place your hands when gaming. In addition, the narrower bezels on new models, which have been applied to accentuate the display, also serve as a hindrance on the antennas' signal reception performance.

HONOR 9X resolves this longstanding challenge by adopting a next-generation technology, "AI Signal Enhancer", that more than lives up to its name. After a thorough process that involved extensive user feedback, and careful study of differing phone usage habits, developers were able to devise an optimal antenna layout that boosted signal reception to new heights: by 50% for games, and 20% for calls.

HONOR 9X integrates the diversity and Wi-Fi antennas into its side frame, breaking free from years of engrained thinking about smartphone design. This allows the main antenna to be split into three sections, as shown in the image below.

The following visual representation provides a sense of how this bold new layout benefits users. Regardless of how you hold the phone – one-handed, two-handed, vertical, or sideways – at least some portion of the antennas will always be freed up. And as we enter the 5G era, it's fitting that your phone should be designed in such a way to maximize the signal, powering next-level communications and gaming!
