Huawei and Honor today launched the Y9s and 9X Pro, respectively, in India
The Honor 9X Pro is powered by the Kirin 810 SoC and sports a 6.59" notchless display of FullHD+ resolution.
The 9X Pro comes with 6GB RAM and 256GB storage, and it also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion by up to 512GB.
The smartphone boots Android Pie with EMUI 9.1 on top, but it doesn't come with Google Mobile Services (GMS) and Google Play Store so you have to rely on Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and AppGallery to download apps. The 9X Pro is the first Honor smartphone in India to come with HMS and AppGallery.
Moving on, the Honor 9X Pro comes with a total of four cameras - a 16MP selfie camera mounted on a pop-up mechanism, and a triple camera setup on the back comprising a 48MP main, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP depth sensor modules.
The 9X Pro features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and has two color options - Midnight Black and Phantom Purple. Fueling the entire package is a 4,000 mAh battery, which charges through a USB-C port at up to 10W.
The Honor 9X Pro is priced at INR17,999 ($240/€220), but it will be sold for INR14,999 ($200/€185) during the early bird sale on Flipkart which starts on May 21, 12 PM local time and ends at noon on May 22. Those interested have time until May 19 to register on Flipkart for the special sale.

The Huawei Y9s is a rebranded Honor 9X Pro with a Kirin 710F SoC at the helm and a different paint job.
The Y9s comes in a single 6GB/128GB memory configuration and is priced at INR19,990 ($265/€245). It will be available for purchase exclusively through Amazon.in from May 19 with three color options - Midnight Black, Breathing Crystal, and Phantom Purple.
Honor 9X Pro is dead on arrival in India due to lack of Google certification. Kirin 810 is a good SoC, I believe on the same level of Snapdragon 730G. Correct me if I am wrong. Even if available at half its current launch price of INR 15K, it will al...
It's dead on launch itself. Kirin 710 with 10w charging for 20k is nothing less than a poor joke.
