Honor 8X now available around the globe

In early September, Honor announced the Honor 8X and 8X Max as its new latest smartphones for the Chinese market. Now, just about a month later, the company's bringing the former of those two handsets to other regions around the globe.

The Honor 8X boasts a large 6.5-inch FullView display with a notch at the top and a 91% screen-to-body ratio. The screen resolution is 1080 x 2340 and the display's form factor is 19.5:9. The phone's made out of 2.5D "double texture aurora glass", and around back is a subtle two-tone design that looks rather striking.

Powering the 8X is the Kirin 710 processor, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of internal storage, and a 3.750 mAh battery. You'll find dual 20MP cameras on the back, and similar to just about every phone that's been released this year, Honor says that the camera setup is powered by AI. Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, face unlock, and NFC.

Exact pricing and availability info is still up in the air, but if the phone's price tag in China is anything to go by, it should sell for around $200 - $300.

  • Sure hope it supports dual band/AC WiFi rather than the 2.4 gHz single band which was the deal killer for me on the 7X
  • Well the United States is part of the "globe" and its not available here. I think the title of this article is VERY misleading.
  • While I understand recent developments have many nations of the world wanting to kick the US off the globe, I don't think it has happened yet. So, who sells it here?
  • How is it an "article" that talks about "worldwide" availability doesn't even mention where to buy the device? And, yes, the US IS part of the world, yet not available here. so "mostly" worldwide availability?
