The Honor 8X launched along with its larger variant, the Honor 8X Max earlier this year. The Huawei’s majorly online sub-brand is now launching the Honor 8X in India. The launch will take place today, and we at MSP Gear will try and bring you all the live updates.
The Honor 8X is a capable mid-range Android smartphone from Honor. The smartphone will sell exclusively on Amazon India. However, it is quite likely that Honor’s Indian e-commerce platform HiHonor may list the smartphone as well. The Honor 8X could sport a price around the Rs. 20,000 mark. Honor has been a very active player in the Indian smartphone market with multiple exciting launches this year alone. In fact, Honor is among the top two brands in the online segment.
The Honor 8X is already available abroad. Hence, we know all the specifications and features of the smartphone. Still, Honor could confirm critical aspects such as availability and price of the Honor 8X at the launch today.

Honor 8X Specifications, Features
The Honor 8X comes with a 6.5-inch water drop notch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone boasts a screen-to-body ratio of more than 91 percent. The TUV Rheinland certified screen also packs blue light protection feature. The handset has 2.5D glass on the front and an aluminum frame.
The HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor powers the Honor 8X. The capable mid-range chipset is paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. There’s a dedicated micro-SD card slot available as well. There’s a base model with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, and a middle variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage as well, but Honor may not launch the same in India.
The Honor smartphone packs 20MP + 2MP dual camera setup stacked vertically on the back. There is an f/2.0 aperture, 16MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling. AI-powered features such as scene recognition, portrait mode, slow-motion video shooting, and time-lapse photography are present.
A relatively large 3750mAh battery powers the Honor 8X. The smartphone supports Fast Charging. Honor is offering a 10W Fast Charger as well. Incidentally, the device has a standard micro-USB port instead of USB Type-C. A fingerprint reader is present on the backside of the phone.
The Honor smartphone will come with Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 on top. However, the most important feature will undoubtedly be the ‘GPU Turbo’ that promises some substantial boost in gaming performance without significantly impacting battery life.
