(Huawei Honor 8X launch in Dubai)
Huawei Honor 8X price in Pakistan is Rs 35999/-
Honor is known for offering well-specced devices at aggressive prices, and the latest phone that’s part of that effort is the Honor 8X.
The Honor 8X is now official, and one of its most notable upgrades from the honor 7x is the screen. Not only is the Honor 8X’s 19.5:9 screen larger and higher-res than the Honor 7X’s — it’s a 6.5-inch 2340×1080 panel — but the Honor 8X is also the latest Android phone to embrace the notch. There’s a notch at the top of the screen that’s home to the Honor 8X’s 16MP front-facing camera and there’s a chin at the bottom of the display, too.
Adding to its X-series line up, Honor hosted its global launch of its new smartphone Honor 8X in Dubai and Madrid, promising a better display and longer battery life than its previous models.
“We know that millennials are super tech-savvy and that is why we have maxed out all the features found in a flagship and wrapped a price tag on the Honor 8X that does not burn a hole in their pockets,” said Chris Sunbaigong, president of Honor MEA.
Around back, the Honor 8X is packing a dual camera setup with a 20MP f/1.8 camera and a 2MP sensor. Honor touts that the 8X’s rear cameras can recognize 22 different categories and 500 scenarios. Also included is a 3D portrait lighting feature that can create “studio-quality lighting effects”, Phase Detection Autofocus, and slow motion video capture at 480fps.
The body of the Honor 8X is made up of a 2.5D double texture aurora glass design with a metal frame in the middle. Inside that body there’s an octa-core Kirin 970 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of built-in storage. And if that’s not enough for you, you can add more storage using a microSD card.
Rounding out the Honor 8X’s feature set is a 3.5mm headphone jack, rear fingerprint reader, face unlock, and a 3750mAh battery, which is quite a bit larger than the 3340mAh battery found inside the Honor 7X. The Honor 8X comes preloaded with Android Oreo running below Huawei’s custom EMUI 8.2 user interface.
Honor will offer the 8X in three colors: blue, black, and it was launched in China this year, and now the device is ready to be released elsewhere around the globe. The first three countries to get the Honor 8X will be France, Italy, and Spain, and they’ll get it starting October 3rd. Launches in other countries will follow later this year.
The Honor 8X looks like a nice upgrade from the Honor 7X. Not only are there some nice internal spec upgrades, but the larger screen with the notch helps to give the 8X more of an “all-screen” look. In fact, Honor says that the upgraded display gives the 8X a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. So if you’re looking for a new Android phone that gets in on the edge-to-edge display design trend and isn’t too hard on your wallet, the Honor 8X may be worth considering.
