Its predecessor, the HONOR X9a, featured an ultra-tough OLED curved display. Surviving drop tests and all kinds of rigorous testing, the HONOR X9a made its mark as an ultra-tough smartphone and became popular among Malaysian users.

Check out one of the durability tests HONOR ran:

The HONOR X9a was the first smartphone in the industry to provide a 180-day screen crack replacement protection. Surprisingly, even with this warranty, there was an extremely low screen replacement rate of 0.64%, showing how durable the HONOR X9a's screen was.

Now, here's where it gets interesting. The HONOR X9b is touted to be three times stronger than its predecessor. And to back up that claim, the brand is upping their protection, by giving users a 365-Day Front and Back Crack Replacement warranty!

The HONOR X9b comes with all-around upgrades, starting with its overall durability — it has received a five-star all-angle drop resistance certification from Switzerland's renowned SGS

The HONOR X9b can withstand drops of up to 1.5 metres thanks to the HONOR Ultra-Bounce Technology. The phone's anti-drop display is made of a three-layer structure, including a partial reinforcement of the screen, surrounding buffer protection around the screen, and sealing protection on the inside of the screen.

HONOR is also using an innovative cushioning material with flexible micron-level gaps that form around the screen to absorb 1.2 times the impact of the fall.

While the phone boasts a sleek and slim body, the HONOR X9b still manages to pack a massive 5,800mAh battery

This makes the phone ideal for all-day productivity and entertainment. In fact, the phone has received the Gold Label recognition from DXOMARK, and can support up to three days of use.

On a single charge, the HONOR X9b delivers up to 19 hours of video playback, 12 hours of gaming, or 22 hours of social media browsing.

In terms of battery durability, the HONOR X9b uses smart power-saving and battery optimisation to extend its battery life. According to data from HONOR's lab, the phone's battery retains 80% of its capacity even after 1,000 charge cycles.

The HONOR X9b is equipped with flagship-level specs, ensuring seamless performance and a top-notch viewing experience

The phone is also equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset, and comes with the Qualcomm Kryo CPU and Adreno GPU, which are up to 40% and 35% faster than their predecessors.

In terms of display, the HONOR X9b has a 6.78-inch 1.5K Retina Resolution Display with 120Hz refresh rate and 1,200nits peak brightness. Continuing HONOR's tradition of eye protection features, the HONOR X9b comes with 1,920Hz PWM Dimming, Circadian Night Display, Dynamic Dimming, and TÜV Rheinland Hardware-Level Low Blue Light Certification.
