This new iteration in the «X» line arrives with a key in terms of the use of the front: the mid-range Honor flees the screen cuts while betting on the motorized front camera. After the Huawei P Smart Z, the Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro are the next mid-range smartphones to offer this feature within the group.
As the brand uses, the design of the new models are aggressive; and points to the youngest with metallic colours, extreme gradients and an “X” on the back that looks as it reflects the light.

Especially on the backside: “X” shaped reflections characterize the external appearance of smartphones.
