Honor launches its latest smartphone, Honor 8X in China today (5 September 2018). The smartphone features a 6.5-inch Notch Full-View Display 2.0, and a 19.5:9 ratio in a 5.5-inch long and 7.8 mm thick body.
The Honor 8X is inspired by a minimalist design philosophy and leverage on chip-on-film (COF) technology. It sports a 2.5D double texture aurora glass body with a grating effect. The parallel gradation design is constructed from 15 layers and generates a different reflection from different angles.
Interestingly, the Honor 8X features a patented antenna design to narrow the width of the bottom border to 4.25mm. This allows the smartphone to achieve a 91% screen-to-body ratio. It is said to be closer to the 21:9 ratio used by cinemas.
Honor’s latest devices also adopts the generation of Eye Comfort mode. Certified by TUV Rheinland, the mode reduce the blue light radiation emitted by the screen and prevent eye fatigue.
“With the newly unveiled Honor 8X, Honor is setting new benchmarks in hitting the balance between value, design and performance. Honor 8X isn’t just a beautiful embodiment of minimalism, it’s a trailblazer which demonstrates that flagship features do not demand flagship prices. Honor 8X exceeds the demands of consumers who don’t want a comprise — on price, on performance, or on eye-catching appearance,” says George Zhao, President of Honor.
The Honor 8X will be making its international debut in October 2018. Currently, there is no set date as yet for the global launch.
