Feature highlights of Honor 8X include:

Large 6.5-inch screen with superb clarity: Honor 8X is equipped with a 6.5-inch Notch Full-View Display 2.0, and a 19.5:9 ratio in a 5.5-inch long and 7.8 mm thick body. It is closer to the 21:9 ratio used by cinemas and allows users to enjoy striking views on a sleek smartphone.

91% screen-to-body ratio in a slim body: The screen-to-body ratio is key to smartphone design. Honor uses advanced chip-on-film (COF) technology and a patented antenna design to narrow the width of the bottom border to 4.25mm and achieve 91% screen-to-body ratio which beats most flagship smartphones.

Minimalist design concept with a mind for aesthetics: Honor 8X uses a metal middle frame and adopts a 2.5D double texture aurora glass body with a grating effect, providing an elegant and smooth look and feel. The parallel gradation design is constructed from 15 layers and generates a different reflection from different angles. With blue, black, and red to choose from, user can express their own style and personality.

Protection for eyes: There is a growing concern about the blue light exposure our eyes receive from screens on electronic devices. Honor 8X adopts a new generation of Eye Comfort mode certified by TUV Rheinland that can reduce the blue light radiation emitted by the screen and prevent eye fatigue. It also features sunlight and night display technology, which lets users see the screen clearly in the sunlight and makes reading before going to sleep more comfortable.

Mr. George Zhao, President of Honor, said: "With the newly unveiled Honor 8X, Honor is setting new benchmarks in hitting the balance between value, design and performance. Honor 8X isn't just a beautiful embodiment of minimalism, it's a trailblazer which demonstrates that flagship features do not demand flagship prices. Honor 8X exceeds the demands of consumers who don't want a comprise -- on price, on performance, or on eye-catching appearance."
