Last week, a new Honor smartphone called the Honor 9X Pro was certified by Russia’s communications agency. Now, what might be the phone’s full specifications have leaked ahead of its release.
The Honor 9X Pro is packing some pretty interesting specs according to the source – @RODENT950. The phone’s display is expected to be between 6.5” and 6.7” and will be an LCD panel. The display may have a punch hole which will house a 25MP camera.

Like most phones released this year, the Honor 9X Pro will have a 48MP camera. This is a Sony IMX582 sensor and it will be paired with an 8MP super-wide angle camera, a 2MP macro lens, and another 2MP depth sensor for a quad camera setup.
Honor will include a 4000mAh battery which should suffice for the large display. It will also have 20W fast-charge technology to allow you to refill in the shortest time possible. The back of the phone will have a 3D glass design. It is too early to say which colors will be available but we expect at least one will have a gradient finish.
In a follow-up tweet, it is revealed the Honor 9X Pro will be powered by the new Kirin 810 SoC and will be the second phone to come with the chipset. The first is the Nova 5. The info about the chipset was first posted by Huawei Club (@ClubHuawei) and their tweet even reveals more details about the SoC.
Kirin 810 is Huawei’s upcoming mid range 7nm SOC with its self developed integrated NPU &
will be used in Nova 5(standard version) & Honor9XPro.
Kirin 970 & 980 use Cambrian NPU from Cambricorn Technolgy.

The Kirin 810 will be a 7nm SoC mid-range chip (the first) and will have a self-developed and integrated NPU. The NPU part is a big deal as Huawei’s Kirin 970 and Kirin 980 processors use Cambricon’s NPU. We sure are excited to know the features of Huawei’s in-house NPU.
We have no idea when the Honor 9X Pro will hit the market but it sure will be after the announcement of the Nova 5 which will be the first Kirin 810-powered chipset. If we were to take a guess, we will say July at the earliest. It should launch alongside the Honor 9X which has already received certification in China.
