It sports a 6.59-inch FullHD+ display with no-notch design and powered by the brand’s In-house Kirin 810 octa-core chipset with a 4,000mAh battery. One of the key changes in the design part is the placement of the fingerprint reader. The 9X Pro includes a side-mounted fingerprint reader instead of a rear-mounted scanner on the 9X.
