This year has been filled with ups and downs for Huawei. For starters, the Chinese based tech giant was ranked as the world’s second-biggest smartphone manufacturers surpassing Apple and getting closer than ever to defeating Samsung. On the downside of things, the Trump US Administration has banned all US based tech companies (Google) to sell their software services to Huawei.
Even though Huawei needs to find a way to keep its smartphones running without help from Google’s Android operating system, this doesn’t mean that Huawei is ready to give up. In fact, Huawei is actually adding the finishing touches to a new flagship smartphone right now. The smartphone is called Honor 9X and it has just been spotted on the AnTuTu benchmarking website
Honor 9X Appears on AnTuTu
The first thing that we want to mention about Honor 9X is that even though Huawei doesn’t want to reveal too much information about it, the smartphone is scheduled to launch next week.
Fortunately, we don’t have to wait for one more second in order to see what are the key hardware specs that the smartphone will have to offer on launch day since this information was revealed by AnTuTu.
Honor 9X destroyed the AnTuTu CPU benchmarking tests and it scored a whopping 219,809 points. This is super impressive and it shows us that Honor 9X is going to be beast.
The reason why Honor 9X was able to pass all the CPU tests on AnTuTu with flying colors is because the smartphone is powered by a Kirin 810 processor. To make things even better, the processor is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage space which can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card extension.
