Following huge pre-sale interest, global technology brand HONOR today announced that the much-anticipated HONOR X9b 5G - the newest member of HONOR’s acclaimed X Series family of phones - is now on general sale.

In an industry first, the HONOR X9b 5G has been awarded Five Star Overall drop Resistance certification by SGS of Switzerland. This recognition is thanks to the HONOR Ultra-Bounce Anti-Drop Display incorporated in the phone for the first time, providing all-round drop resistance for the screen as part of the 360° whole-device protection, helping the entire phone withstand drops onto any face or corner, even against hard surfaces like marble. 

HONOR’s Ultra-Bounce Anti-Drop Display combines innovative special materials used in the manufacture of the display, along with – for the first time - three layers of protection around the screen, frame and internal compartments, helping to absorb impact if the phone is dropped from up to 1.5m, and ensuring resilience and strength. The three layer protective structure also makes the HONOR X9b 5G splash-resistant and capable of working even after being submerged in water for 15 seconds.

The HONOR X9b 5G’s durability extends to the battery, a long-lasting 5800mAh battery that enables day-long productivity, with the capability to power the device for up to 3 days from a single charge. Light, thin and large, the HONOR X9b 5G’s battery retains a market-leading 80% of its capacity, even after 1000 charge cycles.


The HONOR X9b 5G runs on the powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon® 6 Gen 1 Mobile Platform, providing exceptional performance and able to handle the most intensive tasks with ease.  On the software side, the HONOR X9b 5G comes with the advanced Android 13-based MagicOS 7.2 pre-installed, providing a more intelligent and convenient experience for users, through features such as HONOR Docs Suite and Magic Text.

The HONOR X9b 5G features an edgeless 6.78-inch AMOLED Curved Display , providing ultra-clear 1.5K resolution and 1.07 billion colors, with a dynamic refresh rate of up to 120Hz, delivering smooth visuals that are sharp and full of detail whether you are playing fast-paced games, or just reading. To benefit today’s always-on generation, who spend long hours on their smartphones, the HONOR X9b 5G also offers a number of professional eye protection features including 1920Hz PWM Dimming, Low Blue Light, Dynamic Dimming, and Circadian Night Display

To deliver a superior photography experience, the HONOR X9b 5G features a meticulously-crafted triple camera system composed of a 108MP Lossless Capture Camera, a 5MP Ultra-Wide Camera, and a 2MP Macro Camera, enabling users to capture captivating images in incredible detail. The main camera is equipped with a high-performance motion capture engine and 3X zoom, for greater clarity and detail. The entire camera system is inspired by the intricate craftsmanship of luxury watches and jewelry.
