Just like several other brands that have adopted the pop-up selfie camera mechanism, Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor has finally announced the ‘first-of-its-kind’ for its own brand as well
The Pop-up camera has been trending for a couple of months now, and while some other brands were swift enough to adopt it, Honor, however, is coming to the party a bit late than others, but of course, not as the last, considering that several other brands are yet to adopt the feature as well.
That been said, the brand’s first device to host the new feature will debut on two different devices on the 30th of July with the flagship names ‘Honor 9X and 9X Max’. Starting at around 1,399 yuan (around $203), while the 9X Max will come later on August 9th starting at 2,199 yuan (around $320), both devices will feature the pop-up mechanism alongside a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
About the internal specs, both phones are using Huawei’s new Kirin 810 chipset, which made its debut on the Nova 5 Pro last month and is the company’s second 7nm chipset. The 9X starts with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while the 9X Pro starts with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The rear camera setups of the two devices also differ: the 9X Pro has a triple-camera array with an extra ultra-wide sensor compared to the dual cameras on the 9X. You’ll find a 16-megapixel sensor atop each phone’s pop-up selfie camera.
One more interesting thing is that, while you will be expecting a bigger device for the Max device, both the 9X and 9X Max will feature the same 6.59-inch 1080p LCD display, 4,000mAh battery, and headphone jacks alongside their USB-C ports. At that, we can’t tell what exactly makes the 9X Max distinctive, however, the launch is only a week away.
In addition, there is no official statement on whether the two devices will be launched outside the wall of China, especially at the time that the brand is still not completely cleared off the US Backlisting. However, there seems to be a lot of negotiation ongoing, and there might be a change in the current situation.
