Huawei’s subsidiary brand, Honor seems to be prepping for the launch of Honor 7X successor Honor 8X very soon. The company’s new device which carries a model number ARE-AL00 acquired the TENAA certification in China on August 15, which is none other than the Honor 8X model; the same handset which has received the 3C (China Compulsory Certificate) certificate. To top it off, two unknown devices: JSN-AL00 and JSN-TL00 has been certified by China’s 3C on the morning of August 16.
Assuming that second set of numbers that has been linked to the phone certified by TENAA, the handset seems be the Honor 8X. While the details of the other variant (JSN-TL00) is unknown it can be assumed that it will debut as the Honor 8S or the Honor 8X Max.
Considering the information revealed by TENAA, the Honor 8X will sport a massive 7-inch display that will have a 2244 x 1080 pixels resolution. The smartphone will even have a smaller notch, similar to what we have seen in the newly announced OPPO F9. Furthermore, the Honor 8X will be powered by an octa-core 1.8 GHz processor which possibly could be Kirin 710. The SoC will unite with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB internal storage.
Apart from the internal memory, the device will have an expandable storage option, allowing the storage expansion up to 256GB. On the software front, the smartphone will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Imaging-wise, the phone will offer a 16MP+2MP dual camera setup and will have a 1080p video recording support. For selfies and video calling, it will feature an 8MP camera. A massive 4900mAh battery will keep running this big phablet, that can offer fast charging support.
The smartphone will measure 177.57×86.24×8.13mm in terms of dimension and will weigh around 210 grams. It will debut in three colour options that include: Blue, Black, and Red. As of now, the launch date of the smartphone is not announced. However, the device getting the required TENAA and 3C certificate does imply that the launch is not too far.
