A look at the highlights of the Honor 9X – a mid-range smartphone
Honor 9X which comes with the Peruvian version It will be released in the middle of summer this year as a replacement for Honor Introduced last year, the 8X has undergone several changes compared to its predecessor in terms of shape and design, main and selfie cameras, and battery capacity, making it an interesting choice in the mid-range. 9X at a glance has a 6.59-inch Full HD+ screen with a ratio of 19.5:9, triple cameras of 48/8/2 megapixels on the back and a 16-megapixel pop-up selfie camera, 12nm Kirin 710F processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. (in the current version in the domestic market) and is equipped with a 4,000mAh battery, which offers an interesting set compared to other examples of its class. In the list of features and capabilities of this phone, we can mention interesting things that form the competitive sides of the 9X in the mid-range; Things that we will get to know more about.
1- Body design
The first difference between Honor 9X and the previous generation of this family lies in its different design and appearance; In this design, the glossy part of the back of the device now displays diamond-shaped patterns that change color under the light, while moving, and form the letter X in the center of this part. Of course, this effect is only available in the blue version of the device, and the black version offers a simpler design. Removing the notch from the top of the screen and increasing the number of rear cameras to three are other positive points of this model’s design, which give the 9X a more modern look.
2- full screen screen
A common point present in most of the current mid-range phones in the market is the presence of a notch at the top of the screen to place the selfie camera; This has a noticeable negative impact on the experience of a full-screen display, and screens with punchy selfies do not offer much difference in this regard. Honor 9X, however, by moving the selfie camera as a pop-up to the top of the device, offers a single and large screen, without the interference of the notch, which, except for the lower part, does not have much border around it. This 6.59-inch screen has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and according to the manufacturer, it covers 91% of the phone. The technology of making this screen is IPS LCD type and uses blue light filtering mechanism.
3- 48 megapixel main camera
High-resolution cameras are considered an integral part of all smartphones today, especially in the upper middle range, and Honor 9X will naturally not be an exception in this regard; The main camera of this model is a 48-megapixel sample with a 1/2-inch Sony IMX582 sensor, which sees a lens with an aperture of f/1.8 in front of it. Using the Quad Bayer filter, this sensor has the ability to combine four adjacent 0.8 micron pixels on the sensor and form a large 1.6 micron pixel, which by absorbing more light in low light environments, creates images with more details and less noise on paper. Thus, similar to other examples of the same category, the default resolution of this camera is also set to 12 megapixels to maximize details and reduce noise. Of course, it goes without saying that it is possible to take a picture with a full resolution of 48 megapixels, which creates ideal conditions for enlarging after taking a photo in environments with sufficient light.
Among the other outstanding features of this camera, it should be mentioned its imaging at night, which provides good quality in low light conditions by using artificial intelligence and combining several photos. The maximum video resolution of this set is 1080p with 60 frames per second, and the option of artificial intelligence-based stabilization is available.
4- Pop-up selfie camera
Pop-up selfie, as mentioned, one of the prominent design elements Honor 9X is considered to have appeared for the first time in a phone made by Honor, and apart from its distinctive appearance, it also played an important role in removing the notch and providing a full-screen experience. he does. This 16-megapixel camera has an f/2.2 lens aperture and supports 1080/30p video recording. Among the best features of this camera, we should mention the ability to withstand pressure up to 15 kg and the fall detection mechanism for automatic return to the body, which speak of the durability and high durability of this set over time. According to the company, the movement mechanism of this camera continues to work without problems in a constant use during the day for 5 years, and therefore there is not much concern about this.
5- 12nm processor – 6GB RAM, 128GB UFS 2.1 memory
Honor 9X is processed with a 12nm Kirin 710F processor equipped with 4 2.2GHz Cortex-A73 cores and 4 1.7GHz Cortex-A53 cores in two separate clusters, and its graphics processing is also handled by Mali-G51. It is MP4. This collection is in the middle level of the market and in comparison with the direct competitors of this phone, especially relying on optimizations based on GPU Turbo 3.0, it provides balanced conditions and in the field of lithography, compared to some 14 nm competitors, it provides more optimal energy consumption. he does. The main trump card of the 9X in this section should be found in the field of RAM and internal memory, where 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory can be upgraded for this model, the latter unlike most other similar examples of high-speed UFS 2.1 type. Is; This UFS memory leads to lower boot speed and faster loading of programs in daily use and provides users with a smoother user experience.
6- Battery capacity
Another important change of Honor 9X compared to last year’s 8X is the increase in battery capacity from 3,750 to 4,000 mAh, which leaves this model completely open to compete with other models in the same category. According to the manufacturer, this battery will be able to display video for 12 hours and gameplay up to 7 hours with a single charge, which are significant numbers considering the large size of the screen.
