Honor, the sub brand of Huawei, will launch the Honor 8X in India on 16 October.

Available in two striking colour choices in the United Kingdom - blue and black (red is only now only available in other markets) - the Honor 8X uses a metal middle frame equipped with advanced COF technology and a patented antenna design.

With the 8X's "AI" smarts to improve the cameras, but hardware wise, we have a 20MP RGB sensor with a 2MP depth data sensor on the rear, as well as a 16mp RGB sensor up front. the rear camera has an F1.8 aperture, and the front is an F2.0 aperture. AI multi-scene identification can recognize 22 different class of objects in images and 500 scenarios in real-time.

One of the main new AI features is a night shooting mode which Honor says will eliminate the blurring of photos when taking night shots under a maximum 6-second exposure, even with a shaky hand (we'll be putting this to the test in a full review).

Continuing its endeavor to connect with users in the mid-range mobile segment, Honor Mobiles has come up with Honor 8X which comes with the new CPU Kirin 710.

Honor says the 8X is the first phone to have a TÜV Rheinland-certified comfort mode to reduce blue light output.

Following in the footsteps of previous Honor models, the Honor 8X also comes with GPU Turbo that was previously only available on Honor flagship devices, along with the EMUI 8.2 system that is claimed to provide better graphic-processing technology while consuming less power. The overall GPU performance is increased by 130% compared to the previous generation, making the phone suitable for demanding gamers.

The Honor 8X doesn't support SuperCharge due to its use of a MicroUSB port, but the Honor 8X with a 9v2a quick charging is still present to top up the huge 3750mAh battery as well as normal charging.

The Honor 8X also comes with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of interior storage with a microSD slot to expand it up to 400 GB, and a large 3750mAh battery that can last for hours.

Right now, it's looking like the Honor 8X could lay claim to best budget mobile of 2018.

"With the newly unveiled Honor 8X, Honor is setting out to hit new benchmarks in terms of the balance between value, design, and performance", said Honor MEA President Chris Sunbaigong. The Honor 8X is a attractive embodiment of minimalism, an eye-catching example of achievement and ingenuity that demands attention. It features a 0.95-inch AMOLED full colour display and sleep monitoring.

The lightweight device has a rubber band and will cost £59.99. About Honor: Honor is a leading smartphone e-brand under the Huawei Group.
