As a budget mid-range phone, the X8 is powered by a Snapdragon 680 processor that’s paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It comes with a 6.7-inch Full HD+ IPS display with a 90hz refresh rate and a punch-hole for a 16-megapixel selfie snapper.
It has a rather boxy frame, and the square camera module at the back houses four cameras: a 64-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a pair of 2-megapixel cameras. Keeping the lights on is a 4000mAh battery with 22.5w wired charging. Other features include Android 11-based MagicUI 4.2 (there’s no confirmation if it will have Google services) and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
HONOR did not reveal its official price as of this writing.
