“Honor 9X series comes with Google certification, and this means they have Google Suite of apps pre-installed”
Honor 9X is scheduled to be unveiled in Europe very soon. The series was initially launched in China back in July, and they do come with Google certification, and this means they have Google Mobile Suite of apps pre-installed. However, unlike the Chinese variant that came with the latest Kirin 810 SoC, the global variant will be powered by Kirin 710F SoC and will flaunt a 48-megapixel primary camera. It borrows key hardware specifications from the Honor 9X Pro while dropping the Pro moniker. The handset features a holographic X pattern on the rear panel; Honor is calling it Halo Gradient.

Honor 9X and 9X Pro flaunt a 6.59-inch full HD+ display with 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D curved glass display.
