Honor has today launched its much anticipated pop-up selfie camera smartphone in India - Honor 9X. The company will be offering you a Rs. 1,000 discount during the Republic Day Sale on Flipkart, which means you can pick up the Honor 9X for just Rs 12,999. Rs. 14,500), mid-variant with 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM is priced at 1599 yuan (approx, Rs. 16,500) and high-end variant with 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM priced at 1899 yuan (approx. "It's built around a 6.59" FHD+ notch-less display and runs Android Pie-based EMUI 9.1 out of the box.

Before I go ahead, I would like to point out the Honor 9X Indian variant has some minor differences as compared to the Chinese one. The band packs a 91mAh battery that is claimed to last up to nine days on a single charge.

When it comes to the pricing of the Honor Band 5i and Honor Magic Watch 2, there is no word regarding the cost. Honor has already released Android 10 beta for the 9X, so it shouldn't take very long for the stable update to become available. Connectivity options on the phone include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device I saw at the Huawei headquarters has a full suite of Google apps, however, I can't say for sure if the same will also be on the variants that will be launched in India.

Besides that, the Magic Watch 2 has 15 fitness options with voice over guidance. The Honor Magic Watch 2 price starts at CNY 1,099 (roughly Rs. 11,200) for its 42mm variant, and the 46mm version carries a price tag of CNY 1,199 (roughly Rs. 12,200).

Honor is also expected to launch a fitness band today called the Band 5i. Honor 9X also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and an "AI Signal Enhancer". The 42mm variant sports a 1.2-inch round display, whereas the 46mm variant has a bigger 1.39-inch screen. The Magic Watch 2 comes with various watch face options and it also allows you to customise the watch face with pictures from your phone's album. Performance engine on the Magic Watch 2 features a HiSilicon Kirin A1 processor with 4GB inbuilt memory. Further, it comes with 5ATM water resistance and includes a heart rate monitor as well as Global Positioning System support. Further, there is 5ATM water resistance. Per the Amazon website, the Honor Band 5i will sport a 0.96-inch colour display, with HD resolution and full touch screen control.
