Huawei’s most succeeded e-brand has held a new product launch conference and announced the Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max. In this article, we would focus on the Honor 8X which comes in different variants and we would also talk about there prices and a coupon to beat the price down.
Huawei is one of those smartphone makers that have been working on its own mobile chips for a few years. Recently, it even has announced that the company is going to spend about $20 billion yearly on R&D in the future. This simply means the company will make a tough competition to not only other smartphone brands but part/component maker as well. So all those companies that are using Qualcomm’s chips should wait for a serious struggle from Huawei. And this doesn’t mean it will do it through one brand only. On September 5, the much-talked Honor 8X series handsets were announced. This line of smartphones are known for not only a decent specs list and a new trendy screen design dubbed as drop screen but also for the world’s first Kirin 710 SoC. As the name suggests (and the company doesn’t deny this), the Kirin 710 has been developed to compete with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710. The latter is considered to be a pseudo-flagship processor found on such models as the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, VIVO NEX A, OPPO R17 Pro, Smartisan Nut Pro 2s, and 360 N7 Pro.
There are various memory combinations. The original model is available with 4GB+64GB and 6GB+64GB/128GB storage options. In terms of appearance, the Honor 8X series uses the so-called ‘pearl screen’ design, with a 4.25 mm narrow chin, COF packaging process, and a screen ratio of more than 90%. The back is made of a 2.5D glass body (15 layers of glare glass), while the middle frame is molded from an aluminum alloy. It has a new British double texture. There are a few color options you can choose from – magic night black, charm sea blue, charm flame red, and dream purple.
Externally, both phones look identically. The only difference is in size. As you guess and as the names suggest, their screens have difference diagonals. The original Honor 8X sports a 6.5-inch screen. It has passed the certification of the German Rhine Eye, which can reduce the damage of the phone to the eyes when using it for a long time.
At the same time, the Honor 8X is equipped with a 20MP + 2MP rear dual-camera supporting AI and using a F/1.8 large aperture. Also, there is a variety of AI communication enhancement modes that can effectively improve the communication quality in high-speed options, in the elevators and other problematic cases. The rest of the features include a 3750mAh battery supporting 18W fast charging and Dolby Atmos support.
