The HiSilicon 710-powered Honor 8X is now ready to take on the Indian market, where those interested will be able to get it for the equivalent of US$203 (4/64 GB variant), US$231 (6/64 GB version), or US$258 (6/128 GB). Amazon.in and the official Honor India store will sell this handset starting next week.

The sub-US$250 sector in India continues to remain very crowded, and the addition of the Honor 8X definitely looks great — at least for Huawei/Honor fans and those looking to get flagship specs for mid-range pricing. Next week, this excellent offering will go on sale exclusively via Amazon.in and Honor India's online store.

The HiSilicon Kirin 710-driven Honor 8X has a massive 6.5-inch display with 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, 4 to 6 GB of memory, 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage space, 20 MP + 2 MP dual camera, a 16 M selfie shooter, dual nano SIM, a 3.5 mm audio jack, micro USB (no Type-C, unfortunately), dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS with GLONASS support, and a 3,750 mAh battery. This phablet runs Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 on top, and it should get at least Android 9.0 Pie in the future.

The prices are as it follows: 14,999 rupees (US$203) for the 4/64 GB variant, 16,999 rupees (US$231) for the 6/64 GB model, and the top variant with 6 GB and 128 GB comes for 18,999 rupees (~U$258). So, do these deals look good enough for you? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
