Honor 9X in Europe: how to spoil a potential hit of sales
In July, the Honor 9X was introduced, which received the new 7-nanometer Kirin 810 platform, a retractable front camera and a capacious battery. The smartphone is already actively sold in China at a price of $ 203, and its appearance outside of China is only expected.
When the start of sales of Honor 9X in the global market is unknown. But the well-known leak supplier Sudhanshu Amborhe said that the version of the smartphone for the European market will undergo a number of changes compared to its Chinese counterpart.
According to the source, the creators decided to improve the main camera and a triple module will come to replace the system of two sensors. The main sensor is promised at 48 megapixels and 8 megapixel + 2 megapixel modules will complement it.
But not without simplifications. So, if the Chinese version of the Honor 9X is based on the Kirin 810, then its counterpart for the global market will offer Kirin 710F. It seems that in order to reduce the cost of the smartphone, the company was looking for a compromise in terms of its technical equipment.
Another unpleasant moment may be the lack of Google services. The fact is that Honor 9X came out in the midst of a conflict between the US and China, and the imposed sanctions against the Chinese company did not allow Google to get a new certificate. This fact should adversely affect the demand for Honor 9X in the global market.
All other characteristics of the device should be duplicated by those offered by its Chinese version: a 6.59-inch display with FullHD + resolution, a 16 MP selfie camera with f / 2.2 aperture, a 4000 mAh battery and NFC support will appear. On the European market, a modification with 4/128 GB should be available at a price in the region of 220-240 euros.
