It's tough and almost impossible for millennials to imagine a day without phones. When we rely on our handsets to such an extent, isn't it obvious that we should settle only for the best?


Having said that, Honor has a big surprise for you. The company has launched another phone from its X series portfolio - the Honor 8X. At a starting price of Rs. 14,999, Honor 8X is a mid-range device for masses with all the right ingredients to be the perfect multimedia handset for everyday routine.

16.51cm FHD+ borderless Notch FullView Display

The screen is undoubtedly the first thing that we notice while buying a smartphone. A good screen is a must if you spend most of your time in streaming videos and playing graphically intensive games on your smartphone. The display on Honor 8X is simply a delight. Honor has pushed the screen limits by providing a massive 16.51cm FHD+Borderless Notch FullView Display 2.0, which offers best-in-class immersive multimedia experience. The edge-to-edge screen results in an impressive 91% Screen-to-body Ratio to maximize the video and game output for a seamless viewing experience. The 19.5:9 aspect ratio makes it possible to stream videos and games in their best output for a lifelike experience in the palm of your hand.

COF technology to achieve thinnest borders under the display

Honor has always adopted new technologies to enhance mobile user-experience for end users. For Honor 8X, the company has used advanced 'Chip-on-film' (COF) technology to reduce the thickness of the chin under the display. Resultant, the bezel under the screen is extremely thin, only 4.25mm, allowing you to stream videos and experience gameplay in completely edge-to-edge fashion. COF is a potential replacement method for traditional chip-on-glass (COG) technology. It helps in achieving better screen-to-body ratio and also helps in reducing power consumption of the device. In addition to COF, Honor has also used a patented antenna design in constructing the Honor 8X for better cell reception.

Best-in-class colour reproduction

The massive LCD screen on Honor 8X is also the most vibrant and lifelike. The display supports full high definition (FHD+) resolution and has 85% wide color gamut. Combined with the unique video enhancement technology, Honor 8X's display offers clearer and more detailed views of videos and movies. With Honor 8X as your primary multimedia device, you will be able to see every minute detail in the games you play and the full HD videos you stream on the smartphone.

Better customization for Notch and display colours

Honor 8X has a notch at the center of the massive display which houses the 16MP selfie camera and light sensor. While it is fitted aesthetically, the smart EMUI on Honor 8X gives you the flexibility to customize the screen appearance as per your liking. With Honor 8X, you can include or hide the notch and can also change this setting for individual apps. For this, simply go to Settings > Display > Notch > Custom. Change the notch setting manually for different apps.

Importantly, if you love to watch videos before calling it a day, simply enable the 'Eye comfort' mode on Honor 8X to save your eyes from discomfort from Blue light. Honor 8X has a new generation eye comfort mode certified by TüV Rheinland that can reduce blue light radiation emitted by the screen to prevent eye fatigue.

Best-in-class Gaming performance with GPU Turbo

While gaming performance is highly dependent on the screen, a good underlying GPU is equally important to deliver the smooth and immersive gameplay. With Honor 8X, you are bound to experience best-in-class gaming experience on a budget smartphone. Honor8X's powerful Kirin 710 chipset is paired with the revolutionary GPU turbo technology, which is basically a hardware-software integration to push extreme graphics without any stutter on the smartphone's display.

Combined with the graphics processing acceleration technology that optimizes the mobile gaming experience, you will experience a rise of about 130 % in the overall GPU performance. This is simply insane and is more than enough to meet the needs of even the most demanding game titles in the Google Play store.
