We all know that Huawei’s subsidiary brand, Honor, is on the verge of unveiling two new smartphones, the Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max in China on September 5. Prior to launch, Honor already has scheduled an event in China, and has sent out invites for the release of the duo. In the past, these devices already have gained the required 3C certification and TENAA certification. Now, the Honor 8X, which goes by the model number HUAWEI JSN-AL00 is spotted at Geekbench certification platform as well.This variant is said to be from the Honor 8X series, and in the last few weeks, it had gained MIIT certification. The Honor 8X was earlier spotted had a label as ARE-AL00. The benchmarked smartphone has managed to score 1584 points in the single-core test and 5600 points in the multi-core test, if we go by the results. Let’s find out what else the device brings forth for tech nerds:
Going by the benchmark listing in detail, we can see that this supposed Honor 8X variant will be powered by an octa-core 1.71GHz chipset. The SoC should be possibly Kirin 710 one which Huawei had debuted in July this year. If we recall the specifications of the Kirin 710, it comes with a four ARM Cortex-A73 bigger cores clocked at 2.2GHz and the other four smaller ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. The SoC is paired with 1.3GHz is faster ARM’s Mali-G51 MP4 GPU compared to its predecessor, which promises dual 4G VoLTE support. Moving onto the Geekbench results, we should see the Honor 8X packing a 6GB RAM which should come with either 64GB or 128GB storage. On the software front, the handset will be running Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI 8.1 out of the box.
If we have a look at the past few leaks, the Honor 8X should flaunt with a 7.12-inch 18:9 2.5D curved glass display that should have a Full HD+ 2244×1080 pixels resolution. In terms of imaging, it is expected to feature a 16MP primary camera, and a 2MP secondary camera at the rear. While at the front, for selfies, we should see an 8MP camera in action. As far as the dimension details go, it should measure 177.57×86.24×8.13mm and might weigh around 210 grams. The device runs on a whooping 5000mAh capacity battery.
