Honor, Huawei’s sub-brand, has just unveiled the global versions of the Honor 9X and View 30 Pro. Design and hardware-wise they’re pretty identical to the Chinese version, the difference lies in the default apps. The global version of both devices won’t have default apps in the Chinese counterpart, in its place, Huawei Mobile Services.


The HONOR 9X Pro packs a 6.59-inch FHD+ IPS display with a pop-up camera module for its 16MP camera with f/2.2 aperture. As far as hardware goes, it has a Kirin 810 SoC and 8GB RAM with an option for 128GB or 256GB of expandable storage.
