  • Honor 9X has been launched in India for a starting price of ₹13,999 ($197).
  • The Honor 9X comes with a 6.59-inch FHD+ display, triple rear cameras, and a pop-up 16MP selfie camera.
  • It will be going on sale in India starting January 19 via Flipkart.

Honor today launched the Honor 9X in the Indian market, roughly three months after its global debut. The company’s first smartphone with a pop-up camera packs a lot of impressive features, including triple cameras with AIS Super Night Mode and a large display with blue light filter.

Honor 9X will be available for purchase in India starting January 19, exclusively via Flipkart. While the 4GB/128GB version is priced at ₹13,999 ($197), the 6GB RAM version will set you back ₹16,999 ($240). On the first day, however, you will be able to get the 4GB RAM version for a discounted price of ₹12,999, while the 4GB RAM version will be available for ₹15,999.

The phone sports a large 6.59-inch FullView Full HD+ display, without any notch or hole-punch cutout. Under the hood is HiSilicon’s 12nm Kirin 710F chipset with GPU Turbo 3.0, paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

In the camera department, Honor 9X has a triple camera array at the back with a 48MP main camera featuring an f/1.8 aperture lens. The primary sensor is joined by an 8MP super-wide-angle camera and a 2MP depth camera. As for selfies, the Honor 9X features a 16MP pop-up camera with support for 3D Portrait Lighting.

The phone packs a 4,000mAh battery, which is claimed to deliver up to 13 hours of video playback and 8 hours of gaming. While the phone does come with a Type-C port, it lacks fast charging support. Honor 9X also features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and an “AI Signal Enhancer.”

On the software front, it runs on EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9 Pie. Honor has already released Android 10 beta for the 9X, so it shouldn’t take very long for the stable update to become available.

Along with the Honor 9X, the Huawei sub-brand also launched the Magic Watch 2 smartwatch and Band 5i fitness tracker in the country. The Honor Magic Watch 2 42mm will start at ₹11,999 ($169) in India, while the Magic Watch 2 46mm will be up for grabs for a starting price of ₹12,999 ($183). Both models will be sold via Amazon starting January 19. Honor Band 5i, on the other hand,, has been priced at ₹1,999 and will be going on sale from January 19 via Amazon.in.
