Honor 9X comes to Europe on 24th October but may use a different chipset to gain Google Apps

Sharing is caring!

The Honor 9X launched back in China in July and features the latest Kirin 810 chipset from Hisilicon which offers a significant performance gain over the previous generation, and has better AI performance than the flagship chipsets from other vendors.

The phone is set to launch in Russia on the 17th of October than in Amsterdam, Netherlands on the 24th of October.

In a curious turn of events, it is believed that the Kirin 810 chipset has been swapped out for the Kirin 710 from last year. This has apparently allowed Honor to bypass the restrictions they are facing with Google allowing the phone to launch with Google Apps.

While I can't confirm if this is true, but if so, it would also likely be the reason why the Huawei Nova 5T is also able to use Google Apps.

Apart from the chipset, everything else should remain the same.

The phone comes with a 6.59-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels at a pixel density of 391 pixels per inch.

On the rear, the phone has a 48-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture and a second 2-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture. It sports a 16-megapixel pop-up camera on the front for selfies, with an f/2.2 aperture.

It also has a 4000 mAh battery with 10W charging.

The Honor 9X runs EMUI 9.1.1 based on Android Pie and packs 64GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 512GB).
