Huawei’s Honor brand had confirmed the existence of the Honor 8X via a leaked teaser poster which was spotted online recently. Recall that the Honor 8X retail box was also leaked online last week. The Chinese brand has now shared another poster which confirms the launch date for the model. According to the poster, Huawei isn’t just launching the Honor 8X but will also unveil an Honor 8X Max. Both models will be launched on September 5.
The Honor 8X was benchmarked on GeekBench recently pointing at the presence of a Kirin 710 chipset but Master Lu benchmark did indicate that the device packs a Snapdragon 660 chipset. The device is said to bring flagship features such as AI super night mode, elevator mode and GPU Turbo technology while sporting an affordable price tag. The Honor 8X and 8X Max may likely differ only in their display sizes while the specifications are expected to be the same.
The Honor 8X is equipped with a screen resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels. That means 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. With a 7.12-inch display, we may be looking at the 8X Max. The 8X should be smaller than that screen size. The 8X Max is also listed to pack a 4,900mAh battery while its 3C certification shows the presence of the 18W fast charger. Further, the models will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB as well as 128GB of internal storage. The back panel features a primary camera of 16-megapixel that is assisted by a secondary 2-megapixel sensor. The 8X model will come pre-installed with Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI 8 custom skin.
