Stunning colours and new Sunrise Orange Edition

Meanwhile, a timeless classic, the Midnight Black’s matte effect creates an air of mystery, elegance, power and sophistication.

Vegan leather texture for a comfortable grip

Expressing HONOR’s commitment to sustainability, the HONOR X9b 5G uses a delicate, trendy and comfortable vegan leather in the Sunrise Orange Edition for a luxurious finish.

In addition, the triple camera system is meticulously crafted with the precision of light luxury watch craftsmanship.

Luxury camera design 

Inspired by the intricate craftsmanship of luxury watches and jewellery, the HONOR X9b features the iconic classic dual ring design. Small indents, not unlike the design of a watch bezel of a high-end watch, can be found along the circumference of the large outer ring encircling the camera module. The bold design exudes sophistication and class and elevates the smartphone into a piece of fashion accessory that will not look out of place even in the most formal of events. The circles on the camera module are crafted with precise cutting techniques, bringing a smooth and brilliant shine that adds an extra touch of elegance to the smartphone.
