Battery and Software of Windows Honor 8

Elegant Design With Lots Of Design And Glass
The glass is attractive, especially in the blue version. The black version is a bit more elegant, although others might say it’s more boring. The longitudinal band across the camera is particularly catchy. The Honor 8X will soon appear in red and the product images are very beautiful.
Unlike its predecessor, the Honor 7X, which featured an all-metal body, the Honor 8 features an all-glass design that gives it an exquisite feel and superior quality. The phone also comes in the sapphire blue color variant that stands out from the rest. The handset is also distinguished by its 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel that displays a 2340 × 1080 resolution HD + on a 19: 5: 9 screen.
No USB Type-C, But A Lot of Memory Is Present
This Honor 8 is equipped with a Kirin 710 octa-core processor up to 2.2 GHz. This can access 4 GB of RAM. Depending on the device models, the internal memory is either 64GB or 128GB. However, it can also be expanded with a memory card. The device can also support two nano SIM cards. It, therefore, supports the true dual SIM card expansion and memory expansion. Honor even had enough room for a mini-jack port. The only problem is that there is no modern USB-C port, so you’ll have to deal with an old micro-USB.
The Honor 8X will offer many choices in RAM and storage variants. The entry-level model of the Windows Honor 8 will have an internal storage configuration of 4GB RAM and 64GB. Then the phone will also be available in a storage model of 6GB RAM and 64GB In addition, a high-end model will ship 128 GB of storage with 6 GB of RAM. In addition to internal storage, users will be able to use a microSD card to expand storage on their Honor 8X device.
The Windows Honor 8X will be launched on October 16 as part of an event supposed to be held in Delhi. As expected, the phone will be available for launch towards the end of the month. Regarding prices, speculation indicates that the device will bear a price close to $300 for its entry-level variant.
Powerful AI cameras, with stunning night shots
Imaging is another area in which the Honor 8X will shine given its decent camera performance combined with artificial intelligence features. At the rear, the Honor 8X displays a 20MP main camera with an aperture of f / 1.8 and a 2MP depth sensor for Bokeh shots. The configuration of the rear camera will be equipped with a PDAF and an LED flash.
For selfies, at the front, the Honor 8X will be equipped with a 16MP sensor with f / 2.0 aperture. The camera also supports artificial intelligence functions such as Intelligent Scene Detection, Portrait Mode and Face Unlock. Other biometric methods would include the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The Honor 8X has a dual lens 20 MP + 2 MP AI rear camera and 16 MP in the front. In addition, the cameras have an AI that recognizes 22 different categories and 500 scenarios in real time. In addition, AI technology optimizes camera settings and improves photo quality based on users’ shots. The new AI-enabled night shooting mode eliminates blurring of photos when shooting at night with a maximum exposure of 6 seconds, even with a trembling hand.
AI Telecommunication Improves Connectivity And Voice Quality
Honor 8X deploys the latest technology in communication with the AI. If a person is in a noisy environment, such as in the subway or in strong winds, the smartphone will recognize background noise and activate the noise suppression of the AI to improve voice quality and allow clearer conversations.
AI Communications can also detect changes in signal strength, for example in an elevator, which can quickly restore 4G connections to maximum speed as soon as you leave the elevator. Users will not miss anything.
It’s also the first smartphone with a new generation of TüV Rheinland-approved eye comfort mode – a feature that reduces the blue light emitted by the screen to prevent eyestrain.
The HTC 8X packs the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 710 manufactured internally with a speed of 2.2 GHz. In terms of performance, the Honor smartphone will have a lot of power given its SoC configuration, and for someone who wants to play games or watch YouTube videos, the Windows Honor 8 will prove to be a good end-to-end device. The phone will also feature GPU Turbo technology, which will enhance game performance as needed. The configuration will be coupled with 4GB / 6GB of RAM, which will ensure multitasking and smooth games.
