Honor, sub-brand of Huawei, launched Honor 9X in China in July 2019 and finally, after a long wait, it is here in the Nepali market too. Honor always targets youths and offers great devices in mid-range segments, its same with Honor 9X. It comes with a great design, performance, and a trendy motorized pop-up front camera. The Honor 9X (6/128GB) price in Nepal is set for NPR 29,990, making one of the best contenders for under Rs. 30,000 price segment.
Display and Design
Honor 9X sports an IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080x2340p and has no notch or punch-hole which means consumers can enjoy a full edge to edge full display. The display is color-rich, vibrant and crisp as we expect it to be.

The front and back panel of the phone both have Gorilla Glass protection. The back panel of the phone reflects light as if “X” is written through lights. There is a dual-camera setup on the top left corner of the phone aligned vertically and supported by an LED flash. Overall the device feels a bit big but offers a really great looking design and panels.
Honor 9X packs a triple rear camera setup at the back; 48MP main sensor (Just like Redmi Note 8 main sensor) with an 8MP, f/2.4 for ultra-wide shots and another a 2MP, f/2.4 got depth-sensing supported by an LED flash. This setup can record videos in 1080p at 30fps which isn’t an impressive feat, to be honest.

For the front camera department, Honor 9X offers a motorized pop-up camera (as seen on OnePlus 7T Pro) that packs a 16MP, f/2.2 camera sensor. It takes good selfies which are really well balanced. This motorized pop-up camera can also record videos in 1080p at 60fps which is 30fps higher than what rear camera setup can record in.
Performance, Software, Storage
Honor 9x comes with a HiSilicon Kirin 710F chipset, octa-core processor, Mali-G51 as GPU all supported by 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM which all runs on Android 9.0 Pie skinned with Huawei’s own UI; EMUI 9.1. Honor 9X comes in three memory variants which are 4GB/64GB, 4GB/128GB and 6GB/128GB. The storage variants that Honor 9X offers are really impressive. Overall the performance that Honor 9X provides is really good and handles gaming in a decent way. We can say that gaming and performance experience is exactly what an average mid-range phone can deliver.
Battery and Connectivity
Honor 9X packs a 4000mAh battery (similar to Oppo Reno 2F battery) which is really good to have in a mid-range smartphone. This battery also supports 10W charging which feels kind of slow but we can’t ask more in a mid-range phone which also has a motorized camera. This battery can last through a day in normal use. As for connectivity, Honor 9X offers every common sensor found in a phone with a Fingerprint scanner mount, a microSD card slot for expanding storage up to 512GB and Type-C reversible connector.
Honor 9X Price in Nepal
Honor 9X, 4/64GB variant, launched at CNY 1399 Yuan in China which roughly gets NPR 22,845 in Nepali currency after converting. So, we expected the price of the 4/64GB base model to be under Rs. 28,000 in Nepal. However, Honor Nepal didn’t release the 4/64GB model. Honor Nepal has made only one variant, 6/128GB available in the Nepali market and the price of Honor 9X (6/128GB) is set for Rs. 29,990 in Nepal. And as for the color options, Honor 9X in Nepal comes in Sapphire Blue only.
