early December 2022, HONOR Malaysia teased that a new one HONOR X9a 5G Smartphone will come here soon. Well, the date has been confirmed and it will officially launch on January 4th, 2023.
Not much is known about the X9a, but it was marketed with an “ultra-rugged curved OLED display.” If you missed any of our stories, we actually ran a knock test on the phone’s display, and it really can crack a nut by smashing it. It also notes that this will be the first time a mid-range device will embody a curved screen.
Speaking of the curved screen, it uses 0.65mm super-reinforced glass, resulting in a stronger and more drop-resistant glass than the 0.55mm glass commonly used in the market. It is also said to survive 1-meter drops onto marble and concrete floors, as well as drops from multiple angles, under which the micro-drop test has been performed several “tens of thousands of times”.
In addition, the X9a features 1920Hz PWM dimming, which is intended for long-term eye reading or watching visual content on the phone. It also features Low Blue Light Certification from TÜV Rheinland, as well as an HONOR Multiscreen Collaboration feature for pairing with an HONOR laptop.
More will be unveiled on January 4, 2023 at 19:00 and the live stream will start on HONOR Malaysia Facebook page. Until then, stay tuned for our coverage on TechNave.com only.
