Officially, the Honor Pad X8 has been released with an unreleased chipset and an outdated version of Android
In addition to the X40, Honor also unveiled several other new smartphones for the Chinese market this week. There is now an inexpensive tablet to go along with the cheap phone. Do not confuse the Honor Pad X8 with the Honor Pad 8, which was released in July, or the Honor Pad X8 Lite, which was discovered on the company’s website just a few days ago.
The Honor Pad X8 features a 10.1-inch 1920×1200 IPS display, 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.
For some reason, the tablet operates on the three-year-old Android 10 operating system, with Honor’s Magic UI 4.0 on top. It weighs 460 g and has dimensions of 240.2 mm x 159 mm x 7.55 mm. In China, you can pre-order one in Dawn Blue for CNY 1,299 ($186 or €185 at the current currency rate). The price will increase to CNY 1,399 ($200 or €200) when the introductory sale period ends. In the not-too-distant future, a mint green variant will hopefully become available as well.
We will let you know as soon as we find out if and when the Honor Pad X8 will be released in markets outside of China.
