HONOR Philippines just launched a brand-new midrange phone that aims to stand out. Meet the new X9a 5G, which has one key feature that will sure make pique your interest.

The new HONOR X9a 5G boasts an ultra-tough display that can withstand being dropped many times on different types of surfaces. Extra durability: something that a lot of smartphone brands overlook these days.


But unlike other durable phones, this one isn’t bulky and still looks normal. In fact, it’s a stunner with fancy color options, a large circular glass for the cameras, a curved screen, and a thin design that’s only 7.9mm. It’s also lightweight at only 175g.

The screen quality itself is also really interesting. It’s a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel for vibrant colors, has a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and is responsive to every touch at 300Hz. We also have the fingerprint scanner underneath the screen.

On top of the screen, there’s a punch-hole to hold the 16-megapixel main camera. While on the back, there’s a triple camera setup that includes a 64-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel ultra-wide, and 2-megapixel macro lens.


Despite its thin design, it managed to have a 5,100mAh battery, which is even slightly larger than what most phones have. Charging is done using the 40W HONOR SuperCharge via the USB Type-C port.

Under the hood, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor, which also brings 5G connectivity to the device. It’s available in a single configuration with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of non-expandable storage.

Software is handled by the Android 12 operating system with HONOR’s MagicUI 6.1 interface.


The HONOR X9a 5G 8GB/256GB will be available in the Philippines for a price of Php16,990. It will be up for pre-order starting January 20 with a free HONOR CHOICE Earbuds X3 Lite TWS earphones. It will hit store shelves by February 1.
