In order to understand the key to success of the Honor 8X, let’s take a closer look at its selling points. One of the most eye-catching features is the new Kirin 710 chip, which is a pseudo-flagship mobile platform made to bring the flagship performance to low-priced handsets. Moreover, this is the first smartphone with Kirin 710. The latter adopts Huawei’s ‘very scary technology’ of GPU Turbo. As the name suggests, it is developed to improve gaming performance. The Kirin 710 is considered to the direct competitor of the Snapdragon 710. But at the same price level, the Kirin 710 handsets perform way smoother and better.
Apart from this, the Honor 8X is packed with a 6.5-inch notch screen, a 128GB large storage, a 20MP AI dual-camera supporting super night scene, a 3750mAh battery, face unlock, and so on. Among its biggest highlights, we should also mention the more difficult packaging technology COF and 91% of the ultimate screen ratio.
