Honor has introduced the X8, a new mid-range smartphone based on the Snapdragon 680. The Honor X8 also has a 64 MP quad camera, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and runs Magic UI 4.2 based on Android 11. A 4,000 mAh battery is onboard too, as is a 1080p display that measures 6.7-inches across.

Honor has unveiled the X8, a smartphone that will be available in Midnight Black, Ocean Blue and Titanium Silver. Like many new mid-range smartphones, the Honor X8 utilises the Snapdragon 680, a 4G SoC that Qualcomm manufactures on a 6 nm process. Additionally, Honor equips the X8 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage; no other memory configurations are available.

The Honor X8 itself measures 163.4 x 74.7 x 7.45 mm and weighs 177 g, 4,000 mAh battery included. These dimensions make the Honor X8 about as large as the Galaxy S22 Ultra, so it is no surprise that Honor also equips the X8 with a 6.7-inch display. According to the company, the Honor X8 has an LCD panel that resolves at 2,388 x 1,080 pixels with a 90 Hz refresh rate, which has a cut-out for a 16 MP front-facing camera.

Separately, the Honor X8 features a 64 MP primary camera, along with a 5 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and dual 2 MP sensors for calculating depth of field and macro information. Unfortunately, Honor has not confirmed how much the X8 costs, nor when it will start selling the handset. However, the company is expected to bring the Honor X8 to market in Europe.
