Honor Launches New “Best-in-Class” Smartphone in Europe

Honor has revealed what it’s calling a “best-in-class” smartphone, the Honor 8X. The handset features a 6.5″ LCD display with a resolution of 1080 × 2340, an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, 396 ppi and a 91% screen-to-body ratio.

It runs Android 8.1, powered by a Kirin 710 chipset, up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage. A micro SD card slot can be used to expand storage by up to a further 400GB. The company also says that the 3,750mAh battery can last over a day on a single charge (we assume that means a day of medium usage).

The device also includes a 20+2MP dual-lens primary camera with AI features and a night-shooting mode, plus a 16MP internal camera, both with HDR and capable of shooting video in up to 1080p30.

The Honor 8X launched in France, Italy and Spain on October 3rd, priced from €249 (about $285). A wider launch is scheduled for later this year, the company said.
