HONOR X9b 5G with Unbeatable Durability and Powerful 5800mAh Battery Now Available for Pre-Order



Global technology brand HONOR today announced that the brand-new HONOR X9b 5G is now available for pre-order in the UAE – and those who move fast will be able to take advantage of special pre-order offers. The HONOR X9b 5G – the latest addition to HONOR’s acclaimed X Series line-up, combines stunning display durability, an expert-level camera, and extensive battery life, all wrapped in a stylish design and powered by the latest hardware and software.

“A marvel of modern design and technology, the HONOR X9b 5G represents a step change in the technological capability and performance – and therefore user experience – of our smartphones,” said Mr. Mafeijian (Mr. House), the General Manager of HONOR GCC. “From the stunning, human-centric display, long-lasting battery, and professional camera system, to its robustness and advanced hardware and software, the HONOR X9b 5G truly brings cutting-edge luxury within reach.”

As part of HONOR X9b 5G launch in UAE, HONOR has collaborated with the Russian contemporary artist Max Goshko-Dankov, known for exploring the world and himself through bright and colourful decorative, abstract and figurative methods. Inspired by the striking hue of the Sunrise Orange version, Goshko-Dankov has crafted iconic designs, infusing elements of art, fantasy, and enjoyment while drawing connections to the UAE’s rich culture.

Building on the legacy of the HONOR X9a, the HONOR X9b 5G’s screen incorporates a 360° whole-device protection, with the HONOR Ultra-Bounce Anti-Drop Display which provides an all-round drop resistance for the screen to withstand drops from all angles. Brand new HONOR special materials used in the manufacture of the display help to absorb impact if the phone is dropped from up to 1.5m.

In addition, and for the first time the three layers of protection provide support for the screen, frame and internal compartments, and surround the screen and device to ensure stability and durability. Finally, the HONOR X9b 5G has 360-degree whole-device protection, providing drop resistance for the screen to withstand drops from any angle. No wonder, then, that the HONOR X9b 5G has received SGS’s Five Star Overall drop Resistance certification – the first in the industry.

With an edgeless 6.78-inch AMOLED Curved Display, the HONOR X9b 5G supports ultra-clear 1.5K resolution, 1.07 billion colours and 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, with a refresh rate of 120Hz, all ensuring a vivid, immersive viewing experience. Today’s smartphone users often spend long hours in front of screens. With these viewing habits in mind, and reflecting HONOR’s commitment to putting the user first, the HONOR X9b 5G includes a number of advanced features aimed at protecting eyes, including 1920Hz PWM Dimming, Low Blue Light, Dynamic Dimming, and Circadian Night Display.

The HONOR X9b 5G offers a triple camera system which includes the main 108MP Lossless Capture Camera, a 5MP Ultra-Wide Camera with a 110° field of view, and a 2MP Macro Camera, offering amazing close-up capabilities. The main camera supports 3X zoom, for high-quality zoomed shots, and includes a powerful motion capture engine for enhanced clarity and detail.

The HONOR X9b 5G comes with a long-life, hard-wearing 5800mAh battery that can power the device for 3 days on a single charge. Even after 1000 charge cycles, the HONOR X9b 5G’s long-lasting battery retains 80% of its capacity. Under the hood, the HONOR X9b 5G is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 Mobile Platform, giving a 35% uplift in GPU performance and a 40% uplift in CPU efficiency, and ensuring neither productivity nor entertainment are interrupted.

On the software side, the HONOR X9b 5G runs the advanced Android 13-based MagicOS 7.2, which includes smart features such as HONOR Docs Suite and Magic Text, ensuring work and play aren’t interrupted by being on the move. The edgeless design of the HONOR X9b 5G, and its vegan leather casing, strike a perfect balance between aesthetic appeal and user comfort. In addition, the triple camera system is meticulously crafted with the same precision as a luxury watch.

Despite its premium features, the HONOR X9b 5G is surprisingly light and thin, weighing just 185g with a width of 7.98mm. Conceived and constructed for people who want the luxury feeling and amenities of an advanced smartphone without a hefty price tag, HONOR’s new generation of X Series phones comes in four vibrant colours, allowing you to express your individualism: Sunrise Orange, Emerald Green, and Midnight Black.

The HONOR X9b 5G is available now for pre-order in the UAE via, Axiom, Carrefour, Emax, Jumbo, KM Trading, Lulu, Nesto and Sharaf DG at an exciting price of AED 1299.

Marshall MA21 Electric Scooter Review: Convenience on Two Wheels



The Marshall MA21 electric scooter carves a niche in the electric scooter market with its focus on portability and ease of use. In this review, let’s deep dive into the MA21’s features, performance, and overall value proposition to help you decide if it’s the right electric scooter for your needs.

First Impressions
Right out of the box, the MA21 strikes you with its compact size. Weighing in at just over 8kg, it’s incredibly lightweight, thanks to its aluminium frame. This makes carrying it on public transport, storing it under your desk, or throwing it in the trunk of your car a breeze. Folding the scooter is a one-step process, making it even more convenient for on-the-go situations.

The MA21 is equipped with a 24V/200W motor, which is suitable for flat terrains and gentle inclines up to 15 degrees. The MA21 can also support a maximum load of 90 kg. While it won’t win any speed races, it offers a comfortable cruising speed of 23km/hr, perfect for zipping around town or navigating a college campus.

The MA21 also offers a range of 12-15km, when fully charged. And it takes around 3 hours to charge the electric scooter from 0% to 100%. However, strong winds or steeper inclines can affect performance.

Ride Quality
Despite the solid 6-inch wheels, the MA21 offers a surprisingly smooth ride. The spring suspension in the front helps absorb bumps and cracks on paved surfaces. However, it’s important to manage your expectations – for rougher terrain, a scooter with pneumatic tires would be a better choice.

Safety Features
The MA21 comes equipped with a basic set of safety features. The front wheel features an electronic brake, while the rear wheel has a mechanical foot brake. These brakes provide adequate stopping power for the scooter’s speed. Headlights and a taillight ensure visibility in low-light conditions.

The Marshall MA21 might not be the most feature-rich electric scooter on the market, but it excels in portability and ease of use. It’s a perfect choice for riders who prioritise a lightweight, convenient, and affordable way to navigate short distances in urban environments.

If you require a scooter for longer distances, or rough terrains, or crave additional features such as a display, you might want to consider alternatives that better suit your needs. However, if you’re looking for a no-frills, convenient, and fun way to get around for short commutes, leisure rides, or navigating a college campus, the Marshall MA21 is a strong contender.

Price: AED 1199
