In addition, as you can see in the images, it has a very careful design, less than one centimeter thick and a very, very thin bezel, only 1.1 millimeters. Although with differences, but it gives the clear feeling that Honor has been “inspired” by the iPhone to design the Honor X8.
Said bezel surrounds a 6-inch screen..7 inches with FullHD+ resolution (2,388 x 1,080 points) and an adaptive refresh rate of up to 90 hertz. Already inside, we see that this Honor X8 is powered with a Snapdragon 680 SoCa chip that is already gaining the category of veteran, but with its two high-performance cores (Cortex-A75) and four high-efficiency cores (Cortex-A55), accompanied by an Adreno 610 GPU, it is still a good choice for the mid range.
The Honor X8 accompanies the SoC of 6 gigabytes of RAM, to which we can add another two that are extracted from the 128 gigabytes of storage Of the device.

For the front camera, the Honor X8 mounts a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/2.45 number that appears through a hole in the upper front part of its screen.
