Honor X9a has been teased, a similar design to Honor X40
The Chinese company Honor has announced through Twitter that the X9a 5G will shortly go on sale in Malaysia. In addition, Honor released a teaser video to showcase the smartphone’s design without announcing the precise launch date. In the brief video, Honor highlights the curved display’s resilience and demonstrates how resistant the Honor X9a 5G is to drops. The rear camera module’s design is very similar to that of the Honor X40, which was unveiled in China in September.
The X9a 5G’s Malaysian debut was hinted at on the company’s official Twitter account. “Ultra-tough OLED curved display” is the tagline used by the firm in the teasers. The handset is depicted in the teasers as being white and having a hole punch display. On the back, it is revealed to have a sizable camera ring with numerous sensors and an LED flash.
In the teaser video, Honor emphasises the upcoming Honor X9a 5G’s toughness by dropping it on various surfaces, such as marble and concrete, several times. Multiple drips appeared to have little effect on the display. With regard to general design, it resembles the Honor X40. However, Honor declined to reveal the actual launch date or important details about the smartphone.
For the international markets, the smartphone is most likely to debut as a rebranded version of the Honor X40. In China, the Honor X40’s starting price for the base model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage is CNY 1,499 (about Rs. 17,100). With an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC, up to 12GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of internal storage, the Honor X40 has a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The smartphone has two back cameras, one with a 50-megapixel primary sensor and the other with a 2-megapixel sensor.
