Standing firm to its promises, HONOR takes Quality and Innovation to a whole new level this time. HONOR 9X Pro has been officially launched in India and this time, it is a lot more than an ideal combination of style and performance for the brand. HONOR 9X Pro becomes the first device in India to use Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) instead of Google Mobile Services (GMS), which means that you will now be using a separate app gallery designed by Huawei called an AppGallery on your HONOR device. Huawei’s AppGallery is currently the third largest app distribution platform, globally. So how exactly does it work? Does AppGallery have all the apps we’ve been using till now? How does it enhance our mobile experience? Let’s take a deeper look.
Let go of the fear of missing out!
The fear of missing out on our favourite apps could become our top-most concern while adjusting to a whole new ecosystem of apps. Well, you have nothing to worry about with an AppGallery on your device. It has already on boarded 95% of India’s top 150 applications and 2000 other local Indian apps to its AppGallery. The brand looks forward to bringing on board the top 5000 apps used in India as next step. The resounding success of this app distribution platform is attributed to not one but several factors. First and foremost, the expansive reach. Spanned across 170 countries and regions, it garners around 400 million monthly active users worldwide. The third largest app distribution system in the world is also led by a network of 1.3 million registered developers who thrive to make this a better and seamless experience for its users. And lastly, it has nine years of experience in aggregating and distributing global and quality localised apps.
From global to glocal apps, AppGallery has everything you’d want in a smartphone
The AppGallery preinstalled on HONOR 9X Pro is all set to provide an option to the users of the conventional app marketplace with alternatives like MapmyIndia and a Jio browser. Gmail can be configured using Email Client that comes pre-installed in the Honor 9X Pro and the web browser will allow access to YouTube. As far as other social media apps are concerned, you can install Snapchat straight away from the AppGallery and download WhatsApp and Facebook from the respective websites.
The AppGallery comprises applications across 18 different categories including lifestyle, travel, entertainment, news and education, e-commerce and banking among several others. From globally recognised apps like Truecaller, Zara, WeChat to local apps on-boarded such as Xploree, MaymyIndia, Hungama Play, Jio news, HDFC, Byju’s, Oyo, Zomato, TOI, Grofers, Paytm, among others, HONOR 9X Pro with an advanced AppGallery will cater to all your app requirements. The phone even has an Aarogya Setu app in its app repository that will keep each one of us safe and informed during these critical times.
QUALITY and SAFETY are two things that HONOR never forgets while making its products. The brand firmly believes that consumer experience dictates a product’s success. While we know that these apps have been meticulously tested and are absolutely safe to download, the question is, do we have anything to keep things in check. HONOR enhances users’ privacy and security with its own technology called ‘Safety Detect’ that provides SysIntegrity, AppsCheck, URLCheck, and UserDetect functions to make sure the apps you see in AppGallery are safe to download.
