The Honor 9X series is lined up to be announced on July 23 as the successor of Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max phones from last year. This series is rumored to come as the first Honor phones with Kirin 810 chipset. Honor shared on Weibo the first official image that showcases the rear design of the smartphone.
Rumors have it that the Honor 9X Pro has a triple camera setup on its rear. Hence, the image shared by the company belongs to the Honor 9X Pro handset. The smartphone features a blue-red gradient color rear that has an eye-catching ‘X’ pattern at the center. The rear side of the phone does not feature a fingerprint scanner. It is speculated that the Honor 9X series could be featuring a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
The Honor 9X and 9X Pro phones will be arriving as worthy competitors for the Xiaomi Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. The Redmi K20 series feature attractive gradient colored rear and notch-less design with pop-up selfie camera. Recent reports have also revealed that the Honor 9X and 9X Pro will be equipped with a notch-less display and a pop-up selfie camera.
Recent reports have revealed that the Honor 9X and 9X Pro may come with some identical specs.
