The Honor Pad 9 comes with a 12.1-inch, 2.5K LCD screen with an 88% screen-to-body ratio and 500 nits brightness. There’s also another variant of the tablet that does not have a normal display as it features a paper-like, eye-protecting matte screen that minimizes reflection, making the screen more comfortable and reducing the impact of light and sunlight. 

Under the hood, it runs on a Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 octa-core SoC  (4x A78 at 2.2GHz+4x A55 at 1.8GHz Kryo CPUs) Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 4nm Mobile Platform with Adreno 710 GPU. It is available in  8GB/12GB RAM, 128GB/256GB/512GB storage variants.

The Honor Pad 9 offers a premium design, a very pretty 12-inch display with 120Hz and solid performance at an affordable price. Thanks to a great display and good speakers, it's an entertainment tablet with a fantastic value. However, it's a shame that it will probably never get a major software update. The battery life is also very short.
