However, a different poster on the Chinese social networking site has confirmed that the smartphone will be coming with Kirin 810 processor. There is no update on the price and other specifications regarding the device at this moment and the company may roll out other teasers in the days to come.

It is also likely to consist of a triple camera set up at the back featuring 24MP primary lens, 8MP wide-angle sensor and 2MP depth sensor. The front camera is also likely to have a 20MP sensor. the device is rumoured to come with a 3,750mAh battery along with a 10W charger.

At the moment there is no clarity what will be the operating system that the Honor 9X will be powered by. To recall, the company had last week announced that its Honor 20 series which comprises of Honor 20i, Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro will get the upcoming Android Q update. The information was shared in a tweet by the Honor India account.
Also, during the conclusion of the G20 summit in Osaka last week, US President Donald Trump had allowed the US technology companies to sell their products to Huawei. the move is likely to help various US-based technology firms such as Google, Microsoft, Intel and Qualcomm to resume business with Huawei.
