Predicted for this winter in Europe, the Honor 9X Pro was launched in China two months ago. However, we learn that the European version of the terminal would have a notable difference from the Chinese model: its fingerprint sensor moves to relocate on the back, to the right of the triple photo sensor.
Identical with one exception. While the European arrival of the Honor 9X Pro is expected in the coming months, the version of the device for the Old Continent is in a slightly different light from its fake twin, marketed in China since this summer. Releases identified and relayed on Twitter by @ Sudhanshu1414 reveal a fingerprint sensor on the back of the European model. The Chinese variant, she had the same sensor … but on its right side.
Probably the same data sheet for both versions of the Honor 9X Pro
For now, like GizmoChina, we do not know the reason for this change. It’s hard to know if the Honor 9X Pro models for other markets (such as India) will also favor a backprint sensor instead of a lateral one.
What we are however (almost) sure is that the European Honor 9X Pro will benefit from a technical sheet identical to that of his Chinese cousin. We should thus find a 6.59-inch Full HD + panel, a 16-megapixel pop-up selfie sensor and a triple rear photo module (48, 8 and 2 Mpx). The smartphone should also be powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 810 SoC with 8 GB of RAM. A more affordable model limited to 6 GB of RAM could also be realized in our latitudes, while the device would include 128 or 256 GB of storage. A battery of 4000 mAh would finally be responsible for powering all.
The Honor 9X Pro also comes in two colors: Magic Night Black and Phantom Purple, supports Bluetooth 5.0 and is powered by Android 9 Pie – slightly overhauled by EMUI 9.1, the traditional Huawei interface.
