Without much fanfare, Honor has launched its latest mid-range device, the Honor X8, which arrives with a design that looks very familiar: to be more exact, it looks a lot like an iPhone.
The phone has a 6.7 inch LCD display with Full HD+ resolution of 2388 x 1080 pixels, a 93.6% screen-to-body ratio and a 90Hz refresh rate. The display features a punch-hole cutout for the 16MP selfie snapper, which also comes with Face Unlock.
The phone’s LCD system is ultra-thin, measuring just 1.1mm, and comes combined with tempered glass in order to ensure increased screen strength while, at the same time, reducing the phone’s weight.
Like other Honor models, the fingerprint reader is located on the side, just above the device’s power button.
On the back, we’ll find a 64MP main camera accompanied by a 5MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth camera, all of them set up on a square-shaped housing that looks very familiar to the one most of the recent iPhones have been sporting.
Under the hood we’ll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset built on a 6nm architecture. It delivers a 25% increase in CPU performance and a 10% increase in GPU performance, compared to the previous generation.
It has 6GB RAM and 12GB storage and features Android 11 with Honor’s Magic UI 4.2 on top, out of the box.
Powering it all up is a 4,000mAh battery with the Honor Wires SuperCharge which, according to the company, can charge the device in just ten minutes.
The phone is quite thin and sleek, measuring 163.4 x 74.7 x 7.45 mm and weighing just 177 grams and it will come in colors like Titanium Silver, Ocean Blue and Midnight Black.
The Honor X8 will be available in the MEA region, Europe and Africa soon, however the company has not released any information regarding the pricing so far.
