Honor has officially launched the Honor X9b in Hong Kong, introducing a smartphone with powerful features, including the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 processor and a 108 MP camera. Like other flagships from the company’s roster, this phone also has a glass ring design on the rear, helping it stand out in the mid-range segment.

The Honor X9b features an FHD+ AMOLED 120Hz curved display with a peak brightness of up to 1200 nits and 1920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming. Under the hood, it secures an Octa-Core Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 processor with Adreno 710 GPU.

Coupled with 8GB LPDD4X RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage, the device performs smoothly under heavy loads. Though it runs on Android 13 x MagicOS 7.2 by default, an update to Android 14 will soon reach the device. One of its other standout features is the brilliant camera setup.

It includes a 108MP primary camera with f/1.75 aperture, LED flash, a 5MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP 4cm macro sensor. The device also supports 4K video recording. Facing the front, a 16MP camera with f/2.45 aperture provides excellent selfie.

The Honor X9b boasts a sleek design with a large 6.78-inch display, having a resolution slightly above the FHD mark at 1200 x 2652 pixels. Corning Gorilla Glass protection ensures durability and resistance to scratches. The device comes in two colors: black and blue.

Additionally, it houses a large 5800mAh battery with 35W SuperCharge fast charging support. With a competitive price point, this smartphone aims to cater to the mid-range market. With a starting price of HKD 2,699 (~PKR 96,000/-), the device brings excellent value for money.
