Honor has launched the Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro today in China. The new smartphone pair, sequels to the Honor 8X launched September 2018, feature bezel-less displays and pop-up selfie cameras.

The Honor 9X standard comes with 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, while the Pro model (seen above) houses 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB internal storage. There’s also a triple rear camera on the back of the Pro model, with 48MP, 8MP, and 2MP sensors, compared to a dual 48MP+2MP camera on the regular model.

Both phones feature a Kirin 810 chipset — though the Honor 9X Pro chip shouldn’t run as hot thanks to additional liquid cooling. The phones also come with bezel-less, 6.6-inch displays with Full-HD+ resolution and pop-up, 16MP front cameras.
