A new Honor smartphone was recently certified by Chinese telecoms regulatory agency TENAA with a valley notch design at the front. The device is believed to be the Honor 8X and indeed proofs have emerged that Huawei has got the Honor 8X in the works. The Honor 8X retail packaging box has leaked online. The pciture which was first shared by PCPOP has “8X” boldly writtenon it with the acronym (AI) circled at the end. That is an indication that the device will have artificial intelligence. Honor is also crested at the bottom showing that the retail box is for the Honor 8X.
The Honor 8X which is believed to be the Honor ARE-AL00 model spotted on TENAA is equipped with a monstrous 7.12-inch display with a screen resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels. This indicates that it will deliver an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The device measures 177.57 x 86.24 x 8.13mm and it weighs 210 grams. The Honor ARE-AL00 features an octa-core processor of 1.8 GHz and it receives power from 4,900mAh battery. So we don’t know the processor but it could be the Kirin 710 chipset since the device is a mid-range model and is AI-enabled. The processor is paired with 4 GB of RAM and its internal storage capacity is 64 GB of RAM. There is a microSD card slot onboard for additional storage. The back panel features a primary camera of 16-megapixel that is assisted by a secondary 2-megapixel sensor. It is pre-installed with Android 8.1 Oreo with Huawei’s EMUI 8 custom skin.
We look forward to getting more details of the device soon.
