Honor Pad X8 is official with unannounced chipset, ancient Android version
The X40 isn't the only new device Honor announced for its home market of China this week. The affordable phone has been joined by an affordable tablet. It's called Honor Pad X8, and it's not to be confused with either the Honor Pad 8, launched back in July, nor the Honor Pad X8 Lite, which surfaced on the company's website a couple of days ago.
The Honor Pad X8 comes with a 10.1-inch 1920x1200 IPS touchscreen, a yet-unannounced MediaTek chipset labeled only as MT8786, which has an octa-core CPU with two Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz, 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 5,100 mAh battery.
The tablet runs three-year old Android 10 for whatever reason, with Honor's Magic UI 4.0 on top. It measures 240.2 x 159 x 7.55 mm and weighs 460g. It's already up for order in China, in Dawn Blue, at a special introductory price of CNY 1,299 ($186 or €185 at the current exchange rates). After the initial sale concludes, the price goes up to CNY 1,399 ($200 or €200). A Mint Green option should arrive at some point in the future too.
It's unclear when or if the Honor Pad X8 will make an international debut outside of China, but if it happens, we'll be sure to let you know.

I get your point, but GSMa caters to a wider audience. Not to a restricted audience. What you're suggesting is simply a no-no!
