Huawei Honor 8X Max – The Big gets Bigger and the Small gets Smaller

Huawei Honor 8X Max was unveiled together with the Honor 8X this month. Find more about the phone's features, full specs, price and where to buy.

Unusual title, right? You’re right to feel that. But that’s what the Huawei Honor 8X Max presents as compared to its younger sibling – Huawei Honor 8X. Huawei Honor 8X Max was unveiled together with the Honor 8X this month.

Talking about how the big gets bigger, Huawei Honor 8X Max has a mouth watering 7.12 inches display compared to the 6.5 inches found on its sibling. And I must admit that this phone boasts of what some tablets don’t even have. There are tablet PCs that struggle to reach 7 inches, now you have a phone that exceeds that, whoa!

For suspense sake, I’ll explain the smallness part as we continue in this article.

Huawei Honor 8X Max Quick Review

At the middle of the park, Huawei implements Qualcomm’s chipset to power up this baby. The chipset, Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC carries an octa-core 1.8GHz CPU and Adreno 509 GPU. On the software front, there’s the Android 8.1 Oreo OS and the EMUI 8.2.

Well, the design department is where the smallness aspect comes in. For specifics, it’s the top notch that gets tinier. Compared to the Honor 8X which had a few other components in its V-shaped top notch, this smartphone only has the front camera in the notch area, hence a circular shape.

Around the back, two quality cameras augmented with AI handle the sleek photography duties at the region. The camera qualities are 16MP and 2MP, and they are supported with a LED flash for illumination in dark conditions. On the flip side, an 8MP shooter sees to the efficient execution on selfies.

With the 5,000mAh battery, Huawei Honor 8X Max is a smartphone for all seasons. Come Instagram, come Facebook, come Fortnite, come whatever, the phone is up to the task. And yes, options of 64GB and 128GB internal storage are available. Both versions can be extended to 256GB with the aid of a MicroSD card.
