Alongside its parent company, Honor also launched a couple of new hardware recently. One of them is the brand new Honor 9X Pro.
While it is a step up over the regular Honor 9X, the Honor 9X Pro is not the kind of “Pro” device that you might be thinking of.
It’s powered by a Kirin 810 processor that’s been liquid-cooled to deliver the best possible performance, even after hours of gaming. That’s coupled with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of expandable storage.
The 9X Pro also boasts a 6.59-inch FullView display. An all-screen look made possible by the 16-megapixel pop-up camera on the top.
A 4,000mAh battery is included, which is standard in devices like this. But, just like the foldable Mate Xs and other newly-released Huawei and Honor devices, the 9X Pro doesn’t have Google Mobile Services (GMS) support.
On the upside, Huawei is hard at work to improve its own Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and working closely with developers to bring more apps to their App Gallery.
The Honor 9X Pro will be available in select markets starting March for a price of USD249 (~Php12,800).
