Yesterday we reported Honor 9X sold in 100,000 units in the first two minutes and today the Huawei sub-brand came out with new information, revealing it managed to ship over 300,000 units in the first day of the sale.
The phone is readily available for purchase at all major online retailers in China, which leads us to the assumption the 100,000 initial phones were part of some pre-order deal and the customers who requested the phone went through with the payment in the first two minutes.
The Honor 8X set multiple records for the brand, including the fastest reach of 10 million sold devices - the phone needed only 173 days, compared with over 200 for the Honor 7X. The current midranger Honor 9X pushed its initial batch of 100k units twice as fast as the Honor 8X, meaning we might be looking at another record holder in the making.
Specs-wise, this phone is surely a handset worth considering - it comes with latest Kirin 810 chipset, built on the 7 nm process, has a 48 MP main camera and a big 6.59 LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution.
Coupled with a 4,000 mAh battery, the Honor 9X price starts from CNY1,399 ($203) for the 4/64 GB variant, sold in Black or Blue. The Honor 9X Pro is yet to arrive - the launch is scheduled for August 9.
