Honor is all set to launch its 9X Pro in India today. The company confirmed the launch of Honor 9X Pro in a tweet on Saturday. The Tweet read, “Xcited to announce that our first #HONOR smartphone that is pre-installed with the new #AppGallery with 7nm Kirin 810 chipset – #HONOR9XPro – is coming to you on May 12th.”
The Honor 9X Pro will be company’s first smartphone with AppGallery in India as it lacks Google Mobile Services and Google Play Store. The smartphone was first launched in China last year in July. The big highlight of the phone is its 7nm Kirin 810 chipset. It has a pop-up selfie camera and 4,000mAh battery just like the 9X. During the Honor 9X India launch in January, it was expected that Honor 9X Pro will also be launched alongside, but unfortunately that didn’t happen.
