The HONOR X9b 5G smartphone is now available for pre-order in the Philippines with FREEBIES worth ₱4,000.

It has a large 6.78-inch AMOLED display with “Ultra-Bounce Anti-Drop 360° Protection” that allows it to survive accidental drops. This was tested by HONOR and the country’s popular influencers by dropping and smashing the phone in demonstrations.

HONOR X9b 5G drop test.

The HONOR X9b 5G employs new sealing and cushioning technology to protect its curved-edge display from drops. This technology received a 5-star certification from SGS in Switzerland for “whole-device drop resistance”.

We also tested this claim although not as extreme as HONOR’s 100-foot drop test. We dropped the HONOR X9b 5G from 4 feet to a hard tiled floor. There were no cracks nor bumps on the display that hit the floor face on! See video here.

Despite its durability, HONOR still advises NOT TO DROP the phone on purpose because there are sensitive internal electronic components.
