Honor has launched the 8X and 8X Max in China, with a global release possible soon. The Honor 8X and 8X Max have taken everyone by surprise due to their massive size. The Honor 8X, which is the smaller of the two devices, has a whooping 6.5 inch display which even outclasses the 6.4 inch display the Samsung Note 9 has.

To compete with this, the Honor 8X Max has a colossal 7.12 inch display which can qualify it for a tablet too. However, the devices are as large as one would imagine them to be. The design of the phones use aspect ratios which are wider than normal thanks to their notches and almost bezels less screens.

Another primary difference between the two phones is the notch present on the display. while the Honor 8X flaunts a typical notch, while the 8X Max has a smaller, water drop notch. The water drop notch is present only in a small part, surrounding the camera.

Honor 8X:

 

The Honor 8X has a 6.5 inch FHD+ display. The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by the Kirin 710 SoC and offers 4 GB and 6 GB RAM options. It has an internal memory of 64 GB/ 128 GB which is expandable.

The device has a 20 MP + 2 MP dual rear camera setup with an aperture of f/1.8. The front facing camera has a 16 MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. The Honor 8X also has a fingerprint sensor, 3.5 mm audio jack, bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 4G VoLTE.

The device has been launched in China for CNY 1,399 which is around Rs 14,700 and CNY 1,599 which is around Rs 16,800 for its 4GB and 6 GB variant respectively.

Honor 8X Max:

The Honor 8X Max has a 7.12 inch FHD+ display. The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2244 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 636 SoC and has 4 GB of RAM. It has an internal memory of 64 GB/ 128 GB which is expandable.

The device has a 16 MP f/2.0 + 2 MP f/2.4 dual rear camera setup. The front facing camera has a 8 MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. The Honor 8X Max also has a fingerprint sensor, 3.5 mm audio jack, bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 4G VoLTE.

The device has been launched in China for CNY 1,499 which is around Rs 15,700 and CNY 1,799 which is around Rs 19,000 for its 64 GB and 128 GB storage variant respectively.

The devices have been launched in China and the global release is still awaited. However, despite other features, both the devices use micro USB and not USB Type-C which is a bit disappointing.
