Honor 8X and 8X Max Official Launch On September 5
After weeks of hints and teasers, Honor finally announced the launch date for its upcoming Honor 8X and 8X Max smartphones. This announcement was made through the Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo, and said that the devices will be launched at an event on 5th September, in China. These devices will be launched into the budget smartphone segment, adding to Honor’s already competitive array of smartphones.
The Honor 8X and 8X Max will not have many differences except for when it comes to size as the name ‘Max’ suggests. Based on the numerous speculations and what we expect from the devices, here’s all we know about the Honor 8X and 8X Max.
Some details of the device had been seen earlier this month when an image of an official TENAA listing of the Honor 8X Max was doing the rounds. The design sports a tiny notch, popularly called the ‘water drop’ notch along with thin bezels. The 8X Max has a 7.12 inch FHD+ display while the Honor 8X will sport a slightly smaller display. Both the devices however, will sport an 18:9 aspect ratio.
Processor & RAM:
What these devices might be packing under the hood is still not sure, with rumours suggesting that they may even have a Snapdragon 660 chipset, contrary to the previous devices. If not, the smartphones will have the Kirin 710 chipset. The devices will have an octa-core chipset which will clock in at 1.8 GHz. Both the smartphones will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which will be expandable up to 256GB.
The phones will have a dual camera setup which would incorporate AI features to ensure better images. The back will host a 16 MP + 2 MP dual camera with a depth sensor. The back of the device will also house the fingerprint sensor. The 8X Max is also rumoured to have a massive 4900 mAh battery which will power it through the day.
Honor will mostly have the Honor 8X and 8X Max running Android 8.1 with EMUI 8.2 out of the box. The date of launch for these devices in India has not been confirmed yet. However, the Indian launch is expected soon after the Global launch.
