After weeks of anticipation, the device with a 6.5-inch, 91% screen-to-body ratio FullView display - An extraordinary flagship performance at accessible price finally hits Malaysian shores
honor Malaysia, the leading mobile device e-brand, launched its brand-new honor 8X in Malaysia yesterday. Also present during the launch event were official honor Malaysia brand ambassador, famous home-bred singer-songwriter and rapper, SonaOne, alongside popular local TV personality Zizan Razak, the official ambassador for honor 8X.
Living up to the spirit of its tagline “Beyond Limits”, honor 8X offers users a device that provides an unrivaled technology and a supreme lifestyle companionship experience at only RM949.
“We had a great year in 2018, and we would like to end the year on a positive note with the honor 8X,” said George Zhao Zhiwei, Head of honor Malaysia.
“The honor 8X is an exceptional technological advancement towards a truly borderless FullView display. With a very competitive 20MP-strong rear camera and our latest GPU Turbo technology embedded into the device, honor 8X manages to cover all the bases of a day-to-day usage for any smartphone user, no matter the gender, profession, hobbies and interests,” added Zhao.
In conjunction with the launch of honor 8X, the brand also took the opportunity to introduce a special collaboration with Suriana Welfare Society Malaysia, a non-government, not-for-profit child protection organization which promotes and protects the rights of children. The collaboration aims to empower and inspire the next generation to live the moment and achieve their dreams. This initiative is driven through collaborative art with the theme “The Braves”.
“Honor was created to meet the needs of digital natives through unrivalled products and unbeatable values, and is rapidly becoming a youthful, innovative, and trendsetting brand across the globe. To live up to our brand spirit and the tagline ‘Beyond Limits’, we want to co-create value and empower the youth through this meaningful collaboration. Together with Suriana, we urge members of the public join us in empowering the next generation to take their destinies into their own hands,” said Zhao.
More Screen Space, Better View
For the first time ever, the honor 8X comes with a seamless HD FullView screen, with advanced chip-on-film (COF) technology and special antenna design. With only 4.25 mm of the bottom border size, the honor 8X simply provides more screen space for the user to enjoy every bit of graphic that is projected from the device. The 91% screen-to-body-ratio means that every bit of the screen is utilized to ensure the user could get a larger view even though the size of the phone body remains the same.
With a nearly borderless design, the 6.5-inch device shows visuals in a 1080P High Definition display, offering an enhanced video quality in a cinema-like experience. The device covers 85% of the NTSC colour gamut and supports a split screen mode, with a Unique Eye Comfort Mode Certified by TÜV Rheinland – which equals to a larger screen that reduces eye fatigue!
A Powerful Performance
The honor 8X comes with a chipset that might sound familiar to everyone – the Kirin 710, which is a 64-bit octa-core mid-range performance mobile chipset. It is complemented with a 12nm Cortex-A73 generation-based SoC and a Mali G51 GPU that offers a 130% increase in GPU performance and 75% increase to the CPU single-core performance.
Following in the footsteps of previous honor models, the honor 8X also comes with the spectacular GPU Turbo. The graphics-enhancing technology, which was previously only available on honor flagship devices, along with EMUI 8.2 system, will ensure better graphic-processing technology and less power consumption for your device, if the 3750mAh enhanced battery life was not already enough for you.
Great Photography Quality
The new honor 8X is equipped with not only a dual-lens, 20M + 2M, F/1.8 aperture rear camera, but also a modern AI Camera Technology which recognizes 22 different categories and 500 scenarios in real-time, then optimizes camera settings and enhances photo quality based on what you are shooting.
Furthermore, the honor 8X also features the 3D portrait lighting technology that allows users to further beautify photos that already has an accurate ‘bokeh’ effect from the 3D portrait lighting technology. Combined with the 16MP front camera that has an enhanced-ISO with 4 Cell fusion technology and multi-frame image processing, the new device will promise users for covering every aspect of photography.
