Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a bunch of new smartphones hit the shelves. Further cementing its position in the entry-level market is Honor, with its latest budget offering. Dubbed the Honor X8a, the new smartphone packs some noticeable upgrades from the previous iteration of the X series.
This budget dialer features a 6.7 inch FHD+ LCD display with a resolution of 2388 x 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 90Hz. It’s not the best screen you’ll find, but it will get quite bright and look rather sharp. At the top of the screen is a 16MP selfie camera, with a love-it-or-hate-it hole-punch style. Flip to the back, and you’ll find a triple camera system. Led by a 100MP main snapper, you’ll also find a 5MP ultra-wide shooter and a 2MP macro lens. Expect bright, punchy images from the main sensor.
Inside the device is the MediaTek Helio G66 chipset – you’ll be covered for daily use and light gaming with this processor. It’s all powered by a 4,500mAh battery that supports 22.5W fast charging, so you can have it backed up in a jiffy. This will help you easily get through the day without having to search for the charger. X8a runs Magic UI 6.1, Honor skin for Android 12.
Fancy putting the latest Honor version in your pocket? The X8a is available to order for £220 from Honor direct or from Amazon. It’s available in Titanium Silver, Cyan Lake, or Midnight Black. Unfortunately, only one specification option is available: 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.
