Honor 8X launching in China on September 5, confirms the two variants theory

We’ve been seeing some rumors about Huawei’s upcoming Honor 8X smartphone for some time now, so finally, Honor broke the silence and released a teaser poster on Weibo announcing September 5 as the official launch date. It even went ahead and told us that the handset will come in two variants named 8X and 8X Max. The latter will offer bigger screen, course.

Rumor has it the Honor 8X Max will boast a 7.12-inch screen. The TENAA listing revealed the salient specs and we’ve seen some photos of the rumored device touting its massive screen and also the retail boxes.

The Honor 8X duo aims to be a budget alternative to the recently announced Honor Note 10 if you are love a the big screen, but not Note 10’s price.
