Huaweis subsidiary is launching the Honor 8X as a successor of the Honor 7X, but this time a bigger variant will appear as well. It will be named Honor 8X Max and will have a Snapdragon 660, according to an earlier benchmark.
Now we know all the key specs of the phone thanks to some leaked promo images. The Honor 8X Max is also listed on the Chinese online retailer JD.com, revealing itself from all sides in the official renders.
Honor 8X Max big screen and stereo speakers
The phone will have a humongous 7.12 screen with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera, while the earpiece will stay in the top bezel. It will also do the job of a secondary speaker for the Dolby Atmos-ehnanced sound. Honor says it will have over 90% screen-to-body ratio and would be as big as a conventional 6.3 phone.
Honor 8X Max fast-charging and color variants
The new device will come with 18W quick charging. It is not the Huawei Super Charge techology that allows up to 22.5W, but is still impressive enough to allow 40 minutes of calls with a quick 10-minute charge, according to the promo images.
Honor 8X Max official renders
The JD.com listing reveals plenty of specs of the Honor 8X Max, including a storage option and the dimensions. A variant with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage is listed for a dummy price of CNY9,998 (that is equal to over $1,400/1,200), but the company will most likely announce more memory combos at the launch event next Wednesday.

The dimensions are 177.6 x 86.3 x 8.1 mm with a massive weight of 210 grams and the color options are three – Blue, Black, and Red. The good news is there is a 3.5 mm audio jack on the bottom. The bad news – it will arrive with microUSB port, raising the question what year is it anyway.
