Honor 8X and 8X Max to be officially introduced on September 5

Honor 8X and 8X Max to be officially introduced on September 5
Honor's mid-range phone the 8X finally has an unveiling date – September 5. The Chinese company hasn't yet made any announcements, but it did send invitations to the media, which confirm the Honor 8X will indeed go official early next month.

What's really surprising is that the Honor 8X won't be the only phone introduced on September 5. An improved version of the phone, which will be launched on the market as Honor 8X Max is expected to be announced next month as well.

Both phones will come with Android 8.1 Oreo on board, but the Honor 8X Max will boast a much larger 7.12-inch display with FHD+ (1080 x 2244 pixels) resolution. We have yet to learn what chipsets Honor will use for these phones, but it's unlikely that they will come with Kirin 980.

According to the data filed at TENAA, the Chinese regulatory agency, the Honor 8X Max will feature a dual camera (16MP + 2MP), an 8-megapixel selfie camera, and a massive 4,900 mAh battery. Both will include fingerprint sensors and a host of connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3.5mm audio jack.

Although the Honor 8X and 8X Max will be officially introduced in China on September 5, we expect at least one of them to make its debut in the United States at some point in the coming months.
