Honor 8X design and specification
Honor 8X gives a premium look but at the same time this smartphone is also strong. Its design of the phone is so good that it does not seem to be in the budget segment of less than Rs 20,000. The dual-tone color scheme is used on the back panel. Honor 8X has a 6.5-inch (1080×2340 pixels) IPS LCD display with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. Like other Honor smartphones, you will also get a Nokia design in this phone. The display of this smartphone of Honor brand uses the brightness of at least 2 nits, which is why where there is no light, your eyes will not feel any kind of trouble while using the phone.
The lower part of Honor 8X is much thinner than Honor 9N and Honor Play. There is no button on the bottom, you can easily use the option of on-screen or EMUI gestures. There is a sim-tray on the left side of the phone (two nano SIMs and a microSD card slot). On the right side, the phone will get lock / power and buttons to raise and lower the voice. At the bottom you have a loudspeaker, 3.5mm headphone jack, primary microphone and micro-USB port. At this price, the company has decided not to provide USB-Type C. Secondary microphone has got a place on top of the phone.
Vertical dual rear camera setup will be seen for photography on the back panel. There is a 20-megapixel primary sensor with F / 1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. A 16-megapixel front camera will be available for selfie and video calling, its incarnation is F / 2.0. The Honor 8X rear and front camera come with AI feature.

We will bring a review for you soon to tell you how well the camera sensor of the phone goes under different circumstances.
There is a fingerprint sensor and face unlock feature on the back panel for security. After spending some time with the phone, we found the fingerprint sensor fast and accurate.
