THE quest for the perfect smartphone extends far beyond the allure of sleek designs and the latest trends.
Purchasing a smartphone that seamlessly blends affordability, durability and cutting-edge features is akin to securing a technological companion that not only meets our immediate needs but also stands resilient in the face of ever-evolving demands.
The newly launched HONOR X9b 5G seems to fit this criteria flawlessly as it garnered over RM10mil in pre-order sales before its official launch on Nov 1.
Priced at just RM1,499, the HONOR X9b 5G has captivated consumer interest with its upgraded toughness, excellent battery life, advanced performance and improved cameras.
Inspired by the intricate craftsmanship of luxury watches and jewellery, the HONOR X9b 5G features an iconic Classical Dual Ring design.
The smartphone is available in three colour variants: Sunrise Orange, Titanium Silver and Midnight Black.
The elegant Sunrise Orange variant’s back cover is also made with a vegan leather finish, giving an extra touch of sophistication to the smartphone. The back cover is also fingerprint-free, ideal for those who prefer using the smartphone without a casing.
The HONOR X9b 5G boasts a 360° device toughness that covers every side of its Ultra-Tough OLED curved display and comes with an enhanced drop resistance from 1m to 1.5m.
The smartphone is also the world's first device to receive the Five-Star Overall Drop Resistance certification from Swiss inspection company SGS.
Compared to its predecessor, the display's toughness has increased threefold, making it HONOR’s toughest smartphone to date.
Additionally, customers who purchase the HONOR X9b 5G will also receive a 365-day front and back screen crack protection.
Largest battery in its segment
Despite its sleek and slim profile weighing 185g with a thickness of 7.98mm, the HONOR X9b 5G packs a mighty 5800mAh battery – making it the largest capacity in the midrange segment.
This ample power is sufficient to keep the phone running for up to three days with regular usage, ensuring you have power when you need it the most.
This means that you can enjoy up to 19 hours of video playback, 12 hours of gaming, or 22 hours of social media exploration on a single charge.
This is partially thanks to the HONOR X9b 5G being equipped with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon® 6 Gen 1 chipset, alongside the impressive Qualcomm® Kryo™ CPU and Adreno™ GPU.
This power-packed combination accelerates the HONOR X9b 5G by 40%, delivering faster GPU performance and 35% increased CPU efficiency, resulting in a seamless and responsive user experience.
Boasting a generous 12GB of RAM and 8GB of virtual HONOR RAM Turbo, the smartphone ensures smooth multitasking without a hint of lag.
With 256GB of ROM storage, you'll never have to worry about deleting precious photos or files either.
Improved camera and display
Thanks to its impressive 108MP ultra-clear camera, the HONOR X9b is capable of delivering crystal-clear shots, even in low light conditions.
With a large 1/1.67-inch sensor and a generous f/1.75 aperture, the camera captures more light, resulting in vivid and clear images.
Featuring the HONOR’s Millisecond Capture technology, users can unleash their inner photographer for an incredibly smooth and precise photo-capturing experience.
The smartphone’s 6.78-inch display screen showcases a stunning 1.5K Retina Resolution Display with 10.7 billion colours, a 120Hz refresh rate and 1200nits peak brightness – making it one of the best displays among midrange smartphones.
Enhanced visual comfort is also assured with eye protection features such as 1920Hz PWM Dimming, Circadian Night Display, Dynamic Dimming and TÜV Rheinland Hardware-Level Low Blue Light Certification, for worry-free use and entertainment.
