Under the hood, the Honor Pad 9 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset. The chipset carries four ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.2 GHz and an efficient cluster of four ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. There is also an Adreno 710 GPU for graphics tasks.

As usual with tablets, the Honor Pad 9 has a modest camera setup. It has an 8MP selfie shooter for selfies and video calls. As for the main camera, it has a 13 MP camera. The phone is powered by an 8300 mAh battery with 35W fast charging.

On the software front, the Honor Pad 9 runs MagicOS 7.2 based on Android 13. Honor promises only one Android OS update, which means the device will only get Android 14. This is a little disappointing for those who value long-term software support and plans to keep the device for more than one year.

The Honor Pad 9 is a decent proposition for those who need a large tablet for multimedia and productivity. As a plus, it has a good processor that handles applications and even games without much difficulty.
