Honor 9X Revisited: A New Phone with a Familiar Name [VIDEO]

The Honor 9X and 9X Pro were launched in China earlier this year with impressive specs. Now, the Honor 9X is being launched in Russia and will soon be coming to the Netherlands. However, despite having the same name, this is a different phone altogether. XDA TV‘s TK Bay took a look at this new device with a familiar name.

The Honor 9X is Europe turns out to actually be a rebranded Huawei Enjoy 10 Plus. We’re not sure why Honor decided to re-use the 9X name. There are several key differences between the Chinese 9X and European 9X. For starters, the European model features the Kirin 710F instead of the Kirin 810. The fingerprint scanner is on the back instead of the side. Camera-wise, it’s similar with 48MP, 8MP, and 2MP cameras on the back.
