If you’re in the market for a smartphone that checks for a smartphone with mid-level specifications, a decent imaging option, a standout design and are limited to a budget between Rs 14,000 and Rs 19,000, then choosing one from either Realme 2 Pro or the Honor 8X will be a good option. But what’s different?
Xiaomi has already established its foundation with its Mi A2 smartphone in the budget segment. With the launch of the Honor 8X, is Huawei over-saturating the market with “similar but different” smartphones or is it experimenting a hit and miss policy to solely compete with Xiaomi in the budget category?
After its launch in India, the smartphone will become the first smartphone from the company with new Kirin 710 SoC in India. The Honor 8X will be the successor of Honor 7X which was launched last year for Rs 12,999.
Honor has also shared a new teaser official handle on Weibo which has confirmed that Honor 8X and 8X Max will have more than 90% screen-to-body ratio. Previously leaked images have also revealed the high screen-to-body ratio in the phone.
