Yesterday, HONOR unveiled its Pad X8 Pro in China. Notably, the company has introduced the same product in the European market but with a different name i.e., HONOR Pad X9. This slate is tuned for multimedia and features a stylish design. It boasts an 11.5″ IPS LCD that is pretty sizable and has 100% sRGB coverage. The display has a 120Hz refresh rate with a resolution of 2,000 by 1,200 pixels.
The Pad X9 features six speakers
The tablet consists of six speakers. Two of the speakers are presented on the left side, while two are located on the right side. Another pair can be found on the bottom side of the device. To provide a 360° audio experience the bottom-firing speakers are designed to bounce sound around the space. It is based on the Honor Histen technology.
The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 685. On the software side, the tablet boasts MagicOS 7.1 (Android 13). It comes with parental controls like support for Google Kids Space and Family Link app. In case a user has multiple HONOR devices they can be connected via the Honor Connect in order to make the communication easier.
