Honor X8b: Smartphone with Qualcomm SoC
The Honor X8b is a new smartphone with a high-resolution main camera and, depending on the variant, large internal storage. It has a screen based on AMOLED technology and a Qualcomm SoC.

Honor has unveiled a new smartphone, the X8b. This is a mid-range model, so it has neither high computing power nor any strong standout features. But the storage configurations are an exception in some ways: while 8 GB RAM is always standard, the Honor X8b comes with either 128, 256 or 512 GB of storage.

The SoC is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 with four Cortex A73 and four Cortex A53 computing cores, flanked by the Adreno 610 graphics unit. The AMOLED offers a screen diagonal of 6.7 inches and has a resolution of 2412 x 1080 and is said to be able to fully cover the entire DCI-P3 color space. Honor specifies the thickness of the smartphone as 6.78 millimeters and the weight as 166 grams.

A main camera with a resolution of 108 MP is installed, along with macro camera, ultra-wide-angle and depth cameras. The front camera has an impressive 50 MP, which will likely ensure high-quality video calls. The inbuilt lithium battery has a capacity of 4500 mAh, is non-removable as usual and is recharged via the included 35-watt charger.

Only connections to 4G networks are possible, but operation with two SIM cards is also supported. In Saudi Arabia, the smartphone is available in three color versions at prices of around $240. Information on other markets is not yet available.
