Honor 8X now available around the globe
The phone has a 6.5-inch screen and Kirin 710 processor.
In early September, Honor announced the Honor 8X and 8X Max as its new latest smartphones for the Chinese market. Now, just about a month later, the company’s bringing the former of those two handsets to other regions around the globe.
The Honor 8X boasts a large 6.5-inch FullView display with a notch at the top and a 91% screen-to-body ratio. The screen resolution is 1080 x 2340 and the display’s form factor is 19.5:9. The phone’s made out of 2.5D “double texture aurora glass”, and around back is a subtle two-tone design that looks rather striking.
Powering the 8X is the Kirin 710 processor, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of internal storage, and a 3.750 mAh battery. You’ll find dual 20MP cameras on the back, and similar to just about every phone that’s been released this year, Honor says that the camera setup is powered by AI. Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, face unlock, and NFC.
Exact pricing and availability info is still up in the air, but if the phone’s price tag in China is anything to go by, it should sell for around $200 – $300.
