While the world and the mobile industry present in Berlin this week was waiting for Huawei to launch the Mate 20 smartphones at IFA2018, the company had other plans. The Chinese OEM subtly introduced the Mate 20 Lite in Europe, and a few days later it announced Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max duo, reserving the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro launch for October 16, in London.
Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max announced with very large displays
Honor 8X is the smaller of the two, if you can call it “small” as its display measures 6.5-inch in diagonal, that’s larger than Galaxy Note 9‘s 6.4″ Infinity Super AMOLED display. Inside the Honor 8X we have Huawei’s Kirin 710 chipset, the phablet is available in 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM variants. Dont worry about its storage space, you also get a triple slots in which you can add two SIM cards and a micro SD card. Honor 8X also comes with a dual camera at the back: 20MP with f/1.8 aperture + 2MP sensors and a 16MP front-facing camera sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
