Back in January, rumors of a possible Huawei Honor X2 successor started to pop out. According with previous rumors, the tablet named as Huawei Honor X3, would be unveiled during CES packing a nice set of specs. However it was a no show until the most recent leaks at TENAA.
Originally, we were expecting the device to come with 6.2-inch 2K device, Kirin 950 processor alongside 4GB of Ram and 64GB of Storage. Previous benchmarks also suggested Android 6.0 in a newer version of EMUI. We cannot say what happened with the device on those leaks, but we got a different picture in the TENAA Honor X3 documentation.
According to TENAA, the Huawei Honor X3 boasts a larger 7-inch display with 1920×1200 resolution. The horsepower is given with the use of Snapdragon 615, a quite old and deprecated choice in 2016; Huawei could at least consider the 616 version that fixes all the problems found in the 615, other specs include 2GB of Ram and 16GB of Storage.

The Huawei Honor X3 also comes with a generous 13MP rear camera and 5MP unit on the front. We also found the presence of a fingerprint scanner on device’s border, just below power button, a new placement that we are seeing more often this year. Finally, the device houses a 4320mAh battery to provide enough juice to run out the specs.
Yet again, considering the previous leaks, this Honor X3 specs are not appealing and for some a big disappointment. However some rumors also suggests that this can be the entry variant of X3 tablet, and a high-end variant with a 7-inch 2k display, Kirin 950 alongside 4GB of Ram and a 5000mAh battery.
Regarding price, the Huawei Honor X3 should come priced at 1999 Yuan ($309).
