Now, a bunch of live shots of the device has popped up on the internet which reveals its design language.
As per the image, the Honor 8X will sport a notched display. There is a considerable chin at the bottom of the device wherein one can find the Honor logo. There is no fingerprint scanner at the front, so we can assume that it might be at the back.
Furthermore, one can clearly make out that the Honor 8X will be a monster of a smartphone. We already know that the device is going to pack in a humongous 7.12-inch display.
Though the 8X appears to be an incremental upgrade over the last year’s Honor 7X, it is certainly not the case and the Honor 8X is clearly going to be a radical upgrade over its predecessor in terms of a lot of key areas.
For starters, the Honor 8X is going to sport a humongous 7.12-inch display giving out a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio (yes, there is a waterdrop notch at the top). Comparing it with the Honor 7X’s display will be unfair as the latter packed in a much smaller 5.93-inch display.
This is the company’s take on the recently launched Xiaomi Mi Max 3which is pretty apparent when we look at the processor which is going to power the Honor 8X. Contrary to the earlier assumptions that the device will be powered by a Kirin 710 chipset, we are going to get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset instead.
Coupled with the processor is going to be 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage which will have a scope of further expansion with the help of an external SD card.
Moving to the cameras, we are going to get a dual camera setup at the rear as well as at the front. At the back, we’ll get a 16MP + 2MP combo while at the front, will get a 24MP + 2MP setup. Both the front as well as the rear cameras have AI capabilities like AI face detection, AI scene detection, and AI food detection.
