Every few months we have a new device being launched in the midrange segment by almost every company. The mobile technology world is rapidly advancing and with more options, the number of features and pricing is the core factor for consumers.
Joining the bandwagon, Honor has launched the successor of Honor 7X and here's everything you need to know about it.
The Honor 7X was among the first phones to bring a dual rear camera setup in this price range, but it had a very basic metal construction. With the Honor 8X, the back is made of glass with a double textured design and 15 layers of aurora glass. The front has a notched display and a claimed screen-to-body ratio of 91 per cent.
On the front is a 6.5-inch Full HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC along with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage in the base variant. The second variant comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage and the third one has 6GB RAM along with 128GB storage. Both feature expandable storage via a microSD card as well.
The rear of the phone consists of a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. The front has a 16-megapixel camera for selfies. The camera incorporates many AI-powered features like AR stickers, Portrait mode, HDR, and Super Night Scene. While the phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back, it also supports authentication via Face Unlock.
The phone is powered by a 3750mAh battery that supports 10W fast charging and an AI-powered battery saving option. Unlike many other phones out there, the Honor 8X has a triple slot tray, meaning it can run two SIM cards as well as a microSD card for memory expansion. The smartphone boots Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI out of the box.
The base variant is priced at Rs 14,999, the second variant with 6GB+64GB configuration costs Rs 16,999 and the 6GB+128GB variant is priced at Rs 18,999.
They will be available in India starting October 24, exclusively via Amazon, in Black, Red, and Blue colour options.
