At HONOR, we are committed to making our powerful and innovative technology solutions accessible to people across the globe through our X Series line-up“, said George Zhao, CEO of Honor Device Co, Ltd. “The HONOR X8 is packed with one of the latest Qualcomm chipset platforms, Snapdragon® 680 Mobile Platform and boasts industry leading features alongside a cutting-edge camera, ideal for today’s entertainment hungry generation.”

Exquisite Design with Ultra Slim and Lightweight Body

Incredibly thin, sleek, and stylish, the HONOR X8 has been designed with an ultra slim and lightweight body, coming in at just 7.45mm thick[1] and weighing just 177g[2].Boasting a flat-edge design and elegant rounded corners on all four sides, the HONOR X8 fits comfortably in the palm of a hand, and can effortlessly slide into small handbags and pockets, ensuring users will never be weighed down.

Super Narrow Bezels and 6.7-inch HONOR FullView Display

Presenting a truly immersive visual entertainment experience, the HONOR X8 has super narrow bezels which deliver an impressive 93.6%[3] screen-to-body ratio, the highest to be achieved among smartphones in the same category. To accomplish this industry breakthrough, HONOR developed an innovative glue dispensing solution, which enabled the left and right frames of the HONOR X8 to be compressed to 1.1mm, while the top frame is only 1.15mm thin[4].

HONOR X8 features a 6.7-inch[5] HONOR FullView display. The screen resolution is 2388×1080[6] pixels and it supports 16.7 million colors, enhancing clarity, and offering a true-to-life viewing experience, ideal for watching movies, browsing photos, and gaming.

The HONOR X8 is also packed with advanced eye protection features, including TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification[7], eBook Mode and Dark Mode, ensuring a comfortable reading and viewing experience, even after extended periods of use or in dimly lit environments.

Premium Photography Capabilities for Spectacular Image Capture

Bringing a beyond exceptional photography experience, the HONOR X8 boasts a Quad Camera setup, including a 64MP Main Camera, a 5MP Wide Angle Camera, a 2M Sensing Macro Camera and a 2M Sensing Bokeh Camera.

Perfect for budding photographers and creators who love to capture content on the go and record special moments with family and friends, the 64MP ultra-clear camera allows users to capture more detail and vivid photos. The 5MP Wide Angle Camera with a 120o angle of view[8] and a f/2.2 aperture allows users to capture more elements in the frame with greater ease and convenience.

Performance Powered by Snapdragon® 680 and HONOR RAM Turbo

A smartphone powerhouse, the HONOR X8 is powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon® 680 Mobile Platform, an advanced 6nm processor, designed to deliver superior performance while conserving power.

The HONOR X8 is equipped with HONOR RAM Turbo (6G+2G), an HONOR technology which moves a portion of flash memory to RAM, meaning 6GB RAM can be increased to 8GB RAM. This technology expands RAM storage by compressing background apps and stops background processes from getting killed when users switch apps, ensuring users can take a call and write a message and the apps will still be running in the background.

Worry-Free Battery Life with 22.5W HONOR SuperCharge 

The HONOR X8 is equipped with a 4000mAh battery[9], guaranteeing long-lasting battery life for users to enjoy, delivering up to 13 hours of YouTube video content playback, 19 hours of web browsing or 9.3 hours of gaming[10].
