About all we can say for sure about the Honor 8X, spec-wise, is that it has a 6.5-inch, full-HD screen. The screen has the rounded corners and notch that are all the rage these days.
The narrow bezels give it a screen-to-body ratio of 91%, which is about as "all-screen" as a phone can get right now. It's also obvious that it has dual cameras, a fingerprint reader, and a metal frame. Huawei was also willing to reveal that the phone will be 7.8mm thick, and powered by a mid-range Huawei Kirin processor. Additional details will be announced in coming weeks.
The design has a shimmering effect under the rear glass, similar to what was on the original Honor 8. But they've interrupted that with a more muted stripe down the left side, as an extra design touch.
