Huawei Honor X2, the 7″ phablet, now on sale for $350


The Mate S and the G8 are two Huawei phones being talked about the most, but there’s another device worth taking a look at, if you’re a big-screen fan.

The Honor X2, if you aren’t aware, comes with a massive 7-inch display, and sits right between a full-fledged phone and a full-fledged tablet. It also has 4G support, so if you’ve been looking for something with a large screen on which you can access the web on the go, the Honor X2 might be something worth considering.

    It is funny how smartphones are getting bigger and bigger.
    7″ device should be called tablet, not phablet (and shouldn’t look like smartphone/phablet).

      Well, basically, the way I see it is this. All devices that used to be called phablets (remember Dell Streak, the first phablet? It was 5 inches) are now called “phones”, and all those devices that used to be called small tablets (6.3 inches and up) are now called phablets.

      And of course the are scarcely any phones anymore. Even iPhone with its 4.7 screen, due to its huge bezels it looks like a 5 incher… That’s not necessarily bad, it shows that the smartphone genre is dying (for a long while now) and it is being replaced by (small) tablets. Also tablets have not been dying (as many like to report), they’re just getting smaller and are called phones…

      i like how its called a phablet …
      we need every company to release at least one of these 6-7 inchers once a year … with full flagship specs but sane prices …

          yeah well … if all companies release one of these every year , you’ll see the competition increase , get fierce … along with lots and LOTS of innovation AND the very VERY favorable … Aggressive pricing strategies being adopted by most in the race to capture the (then)existent mega phablet market πŸ˜€

          They should be nicknamed the “warship” in reference to the flagships but being a bit larger then ordinary flagship phones..

          THEN i’ll buy one :p

        Galaxy Tab looks like tablet (even has Tab in the name) ant this looks like smartphone (I mean, by its physical look) and it is call phablet. I just want to say that boundaries are moving towards large displays.

          Smartphones have gotten bigger for quite a long time now, this kind of phablet is nothing new. My question is still valid where were you for the last 5 years if you just noticed this??

            You obviously don’t understand me. The point is that Galaxy Tab looks like tablet and has poor camera, phone calls are just an addition. This one has 7 inches, but looks like smarthone (actually a phablet), has very good camera with flash (not the shitty one like Galaxy Tab) and has all other characteristics of smartphone/phablet, rather than tablet (although it is 7 inches). Smartphones are getting bigger, yes, and calling a 7″ device a phablet and making it look like one and making it with specifications like one, that is huge jump.

            The point is that small tablets are now called phablets and has all the specifications like the phablets.

              Listen Aa (nice name here πŸ™‚ )
              I don’t want you to justify your opinion you don’t have to it’s your opinion.
              It’s all good if you think the 7 inches phablet are getting better.
              The only the ony thing I wanted to point out is that those kind of phablet are nothing new, that why I said where were you or was the cave warm πŸ˜‰
              Have a nice day

              Ok, just stop it with that cave joke. πŸ™‚

              Long story short: few years ago, 7″ inch devices were tablets with poor cameras and lack of advanced smartphone features, but with standars tablet looks.

              Nowadays (according to this article): 7″ devices are phablets with full smartphone functions, advanced cameras, etc.

              And I know that smart devices are getting bigger and better.

              I just wanted to point out that this this is a huge boundary crossing between tablets and fully functioned phablets, since there is big difference between their functions).

              We basically understand each other very well, but we are too strict and detailed in our opinions.

              Have a nice day, greetings from Southern Europe. πŸ™‚
