Honor, the tech-focused smartphone brand from Huawei, has officially introduced the all-new AppGallery along with the 9X Pro in the Indian market. Since last year, Huawei is facing US Entity List problems and cannot use Google Mobile Services on its smartphones. This led Huawei to come up with its own application store, named AppGallery, which is the official app distribution platform for Huawei and Honor smartphones. According to the company, after Apple App Store and Google Play Store, this is among the top three app distribution platforms.
The AppGallery is a step ahead towards fulfilling Honor's commitment to providing an all-scenario intelligent ecosystem for young people around the world. Designed to offer the consumers an array of app options to select from, the latest Avatar of the AppGallery brings the global success story of aggregating and distributing applications/ services, including both popular global apps and quality-localised apps, says the company. With all-scenario open capabilities, global intelligent distribution, end-to-end operation management, and comprehensive support provided to developers, the brand aims to keep empowering developers and bringing a better digital experience to users around the world. The AppGallery already features a wide variety of apps across health & fitness, entertainment, music, and photography for consumers. Honor also promises a firm and steady strategy fast-paced towards bringing several other apps for consumers in the near future.
Charles Peng, President, HONOR India said, "We are excited to introduce company's official AppGallery to Indian market. Not just that, we have also launched HONOR 9X Pro, a promising addition to brand's most celebrated X series smartphones. We, at Honor, believe in bringing new innovation to the fingertips of our users and with HONOR 9X Pro, featuring brand's self-developed AppGallery, we aim to empower our consumers with a choice to experience new innovation. The AppGallery has received a promising response globally, and we are confident to replicate our efforts and the success story in India as well.
