Since the split, Honor has been doing well, and given that they have the upper hand, which is GMS – it makes life a whole lot easier to recommend their phones. That said, this time we get a successor to the tough Honor X9a which was announced a while ago. Say hello to the new Honor X9b, now available in Malaysia.

The Honor X9b is their new and tougher mid-tier smartphone which features the Honor Ultra-Bounce Anti-Drop Display that can withstand some hits and drops. This is the unique feature that we saw in the Honor X9a and now we see it once again with the X9b. We get a 6.78” AMOLED Display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1200 nits peak brightness, with a resolution of 2652×1200 to be specific.

Under the hood, the phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1, an octa-core processor which is based on the 4nm process, with 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage. However, you’d notice that it says 20GB and that’s because it has 8GB of Virtual RAM. Powering all this is a 5800mAh battery with support for 35W SuperCharge. It also has IP53 protection too.

On the back, the Honor X9b has a triple camera setup: a primary 108MP Camera with f/1.75, followed by a 5MP f/2.2 Ultra-wide and a 2MP f/2.4 Macro camera. On the front, you will find a 16MP selfie shooter. As for the rest, there isn’t much to say. However, the Honor X9b comes in 3 different colours: Sunrise Orange which uses Vegan leather, Titanium Silver, and Midnight Black.

Honor X9b Pricing and Availability

The Honor X9b will only be available in one variant: with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, and it will be priced at RM 1,499. It comes with 2-year warranty.

There are some pre-order offers going on, where you can pre-order the phone for RM 9 and get some freebies. But now that the phone has been announced, if you were to purchase it, here are some of the benefits of buying it earlier:

  • Free gifts worth up to RM 978, which includes: Honor Earbuds X5, Honor MOECEN Band and 365-day front and back Replacement (One time).
