I've already reviewed the two pen displays. Here's a comparison table based on my reviews.

Tilt sensitivity Line breaks when direction changes from bottom to top, vice versa. Tilt doesn't work one inch away from the edge. Tilt works well. Tilt working near the edge is hit and miss.
Glitches The issue with tilt. Medibang Paint Pro (Mac) has line jitter issue No glitches experienced

Cables included HDMI, USB-C HDMI, VGA, USB-A

The main significant difference between the two pen displays would be the matte screen protector on the XP-Pen vs the matte glass used by Huion. Matte screen protector can be scratched but matte glass can't. Screen protector can be replaced in the future when XP-Pen starts selling replacement screen protectors but who knows when that will be.

Both matte surface offer very similar tactile drawing experience.

Even though XP-Pen's display is not laminated, it looks very similar to Huion's laminated display. There's still a tiny gap between the cursor and the pen tip, which is probably not noticeable unless you're looking out for it. Both displays have minimal parallax or cursor-pen tip offset.

XP-Pen has the advantage when it comes to ports. XP-Pen supports USB-C in addition to HDMI. USB-C is versatile and also allows you to use the display as a USB hub. Huion uses HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort. VGA isn't that useful since computers from recent years no longer use VGA. And VGA can't support 1440P resolution.
