Weeks after it was first teased to the public, HONOR has officially launched the HONOR X9a 5G in Malaysia today. As you may recall, the company put a lot of focus on highlighting the phone’s extremely durable screen.
Featuring a Full HD+ AMOLED panel with curved edges, the 6.67-inch display also has a 120Hz refresh rate, a peak brightness of 800 nits, 1920Hz PWM dimming, 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage, and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. The company claimed that the screen’s durability can match the Kunlun Glass on Huawei Mate50 Pro and has no problem letting us test the claim:
