Honor Band 5i is a fitness smartband that has a 0.96-inch touch display.

Honor also showcased two new smartwatches - Watch Magic 2- that will be launched alongside the smartphones in India next month.

Well, the company will launch the Honor 9X, Honor Band 5i, and Honor Magic Watch 2 at an event today. You can also catch the launch live by tapping the play icon on the video embedded below.

The Honor 9X is expected to be priced quite similar to its Chinese model. However, it is expected to be similar to what was announced in the Chinese market a year ago.

Honor 9X has been priced at Rs. 13,999 in India for the 4GB+128GB base variant and Rs. 16,999 for the higher-end 6GB+128GB variant.

Honor hasn't revealed the prices of the Honor Magic Watch 2 and Honor Band 5i in India. Notably, all these devices have been announced already and are available in China.

The Honor MagicWatch 2 is powered by the Kirin A1 SoC and comes in two sizes - 42mm and 46mm. Honor Band 5i also has a heart rate sensor.

The dual-SIM (Nano) Honor 9X runs Android Pie with EMUI 9.1 on top and features a 6.59-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The device is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 710F chipset (12nm, 4x Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.2GHz + 4x Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz), paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.

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 connectivity features include dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm audio jack. For biometric authentication, Honor 9X features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It's a successor to the Honor 8X that was launched a long time ago - back in October 2018. So stay tuned for official details. The 46 mm watch features a 1.39-inch AMOLED display, the 42mm watch, on the other hand, comes with a 1.2-inch AMOLED display. Other features of the watch include a heart rate monitor, Global Positioning System support and 5ATM water resistance. 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. The band also packs a 91mAh battery that the brand claims can last for up to 9 days on a single charge. Further, there is 5ATM water resistance. It can track different activities like walking, running and cycling, and can also monitor your heart-rate, sleep and SpO2 levels.
