After days of teasers, Honor’s newest entry into the mid-range segment, the Honor 8X, has finally made its official debut in the Philippines, adding to the company’s roster of value for money devices.
The Honor 8X sports a 6.5-inch FHD FullView display that gives it a 91% screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood is an octa-core Kirin 710, along with 4GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage, expandable with a microSD card.
The device boasts a dual rear camera system (20MP + 2MP), augmented by features like AI-Scene detection, which optimizes the camera settings for up to 500 scenes in 22 different categories of subjects. It’s also capable of taking a 6-second night shot without the need for a tripod. Up front, the 16MP snapper boasts an enhanced ISO with 4-Cell Fusion Technology and multi-frame image processing, which allows the camera to capture two times as much light.
The Honor 8X comes in three colors: Black, Blue and Red, and is now available for pre-order. It will retail for PhP12,990 when it becomes available nationwide on October 13, 2018, along with the opening of the brand’s authorized store in SM North EDSA. It will also be available in online platforms, Lazada and Shopee, wherein you can also get an Honor Gift Box plus other freebies.
