Honor subtly released a new smartphone in Finland. Meet the new Honor 9X Lite.

Almost all the details revealed on a previous leak were pretty much on point. But the thing is, the Honor 9X Lite a poor upgrade over the Honor 8X from last year.


For one, it has the same Kirin 710 processor. It may be an outdated chipset, but this means that the Honor 9X Lite still has Google Mobile Services support — possibly the last Honor smartphone to have it.

The chipset is partnered by 4GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, 3,750mAh battery, and 10W of fast charging.


It also uses an identical 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD display, with a notch that houses a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

The main upgrade here is seen in the primary camera on the back. This thing now comes with a 48-megapixel primary shooter. An update to the 20-megapixel sensor of the Honor 8X.


You can get it in Black, and a new Green color option. The Honor 9X has a price of EUR199 (~Php10,900). Pre-orders will begin on April 30 and will hit the shelves on May 14.

If you don’t mind rolling with Huawei Mobile Services, the Honor 30s, Honor 30 and 30 Pro offers newer and more powerful hardware than the 9X.
