The fingerprint sensor, 20MP main sensor and 2MP depth-sensing sensor and LED flash are located at the glass back while the power and volume buttons can be found at the right side.

There’s a strong similarity between Honor 8X and some Huawei models. The screen stretches from top to bottom and its glossy exterior makes for a really cool Smartphone. As with many Smartphones, this one isn’t smudging and fingerprint-proof.

The main microphone, micro USB port, loudspeaker, and 3.5mm audio port can all be found at the bottom part while the second microphone is set at the top part.

Charging and Battery Time

SIM Card Slots

This Smartphone is Dual SIM. Its triple card tray for two nano-sized SIM cards and one micro-SD card with a capacity of up to 256GB is placed strategically at the left side.
