This week, Honor unveiled a number of new products for its native market of China in addition to the X40. A cost-effective tablet has joined the economical phone. It’s named the Honor Pad X8, and it shouldn’t be confused with the Honor Pad 8 that was released back in July or the Honor Pad X8 Lite that just just appeared on the company’s website.
The Honor Pad X8 comes with a 10.1-inch 1920×1200 IPS touchscreen, a yet-unannounced MediaTek chipset labeled only as MT8786, which has an octa-core CPU with two Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz, 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 5,100 mAh battery.
The tablet runs three-year old Android 10 for whatever reason, with Honor’s Magic UI 4.0 on top. It measures 240.2 x 159 x 7.55 mm and weighs 460g. It’s already up for order in china, in Dawn Blue, at a special introductory price of CNY 1,299 ($186 or €185 at the current exchange rates). After the initial sale concludes, the price goes up to CNY 1,399 ($200 or €200). A Mint Green option should arrive at some point in the future too.
The Honor Pad X8’s international release outside of China is not yet known, but if it does, we’ll be sure to let you know.
