HONOR will launch its toughest phone, the HONOR X9b 5G, in the Philippines on January 12, 2024. The mid-range phone made its debut in October 2023.

The HONOR X9b 5G is dubbed the toughest phone with an all-angle ultra-tough design featuring a three-level Ultra-Bounce Anti-Drop Display 360-degree Anti-Drop Protection, which consists of three layers of reinforcement for the screen, frame, and internal compartments.

According to HONOR, this is the first phone in the industry to receive a five-star overall drop resistance certification from Swiss-based test and certification company, SGS.


The HONOR X9b 5G is not just tough on the outside. It also has decent performance on the inside. It features a 6.78-inch 1.5K OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which supports 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and 1.07 billion colors.

It also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 processor with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
