Huawei announces the Honor 8X with a 91% screen-to-body ratio

Huawei today announced the latest mid-range device from its Honor lineup, the Honor 8X. The device packs a trendy design, and it has a 91% screen-to-body ratio.

The device is powered by Huawei's own 12nm Kirin 710 chipset. The company says that that means a 75% single-core performance boost over its predecessor, with a 130% GPU performance boost. There's no Neural Processing Unit like on the Kirin 970, but the device does have an AI camera. That means that the 20MP + 2MP f/1.8 sensors can see what they're looking at, and adjust settings accordingly.

That's not all though, because it offers 16X slow motion video capture at 480fps, something that's unheard of in other devices of its class.

The screen is 6.5 inches, with a resolution of 2340x1080, giving it a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Huawei boasts that the bottom bezel is just 4.25mm, which is what offers that 91% screen-to-body ratio.

The Honor 8X comes with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage, with support for up to a 400GB microSD card. That's all powered by a 3,750mAh battery, and it comes in blue, black, and red.
