Honor has finally revealed the launch date for its upcoming Honor 9X Lite smartphone. The new member of the Honor 9 lineup will be accompanied with two new products as well – the Honor Magic Earbuds, and the Honor Scale 2. These products are announced in line with the company’s Intelligent Lifestyle 1+8+N ecosystem.
Honor 9X Lite
To recap, the Honor 9X Lite runs on the Kirin 710 chipset, paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage (expandable up to 512GB via microSD). It has a large 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display, with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
Camera wise, the rear sports a dual-camera setup which has a 48MP main sensor, as well as a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, in charge of selfies is a 16MP sensor, complete with 60fps FHD video recording.
The Honor 9X Lite does pack a 3,750mAh battery that supports standard 10W charging. What’s nice is that despite being an entry-level smartphone, it still has USB Type-C, albeit USB 2.0.
According to Soyacincau, the Honor 9X Lite is indeed certified by Google and will come with the Google Play Store instead of the Huawei Mobile Services.
Honor Magic Earbuds
As the latest addition to the HONOR’s audio product series, the HONOR Magic Earbuds are wireless and ergonomically designed to offer maximum in-ear comfort, hybrid active noise cancelling technology and immersive sound quality. The wireless earbuds allow users to make high quality audio calls and listen to music by seamlessly connecting to other devices via Bluetooth.
Honor Scale 2
For the health-conscious, the HONOR Scale 2 is a successor to the HONOR Smart Scale as it offers more accurate reading using the HUAWEI TruFit technology. The new design displays a more delicate and compact appearance for easy storage. Built for home users’ convenience, HONOR Scale 2 allows users to connect via Bluetooth to automatically recognize and record individual body weight and fat percentage.
Pricing and Availability
The Honor 9X Lite, Magic Earbuds, and Scale 2’s price and availability info will only be announced on the 27th of May, which is a week from now. From the banner image on Hihonor, it seems the phone will come in three colours – green, blue, and purple.
