Honor 9X sales exceeded 200 million yuan ($2.9 million) worth units in just “2 minutes” that’s 200% more than its predecessor Honor 8X in the same timespan, creating the fastest sales record among the whole Honor X series smartphones.
As the Honor 9X Pro will go on pre-order on July 30 and its first sale is set for August 9 in China.
