Honor unwraps large 8X and larger 8X Max with dual cams and notches
The smaller of the two is the more powerful thanks to a HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset that's coupled with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The 8X also offers the higher-megapixel set of cameras - 20MP f/1.8 + 2MP on the rear and a 16MP f/2.0 on the front.
The Honor 8X is smaller only in comparison to the 8X Max as it has a massive 6.5-inch 2340x1080px display that outstretches the likes of the Galaxy Note9 or OnePlus 6.
The Honor 8X is powered by a 3,750mAh battery with fast charging and has a triple card slot that's able to accommodate two nano SIM cards as well as a microSD card.
The Honor 8X Max earns its name with a mammoth 7.12-inch 2244x1080px screen with a tiny water drop notch. The ample screen is powered by an equally-impressive 5,000mAh battery that's fast chargeable.
On the inside the 8X Max comes, as standard, with a Snapdragon 636 chipset with 4GB of RAM but there's a Snapdragon 660 + 6GB model that will go on sale later in October.
Imaging-wise the Honor 8X Max has a lower-res 16MP f/2.0 + 2MP main camera and an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera.
Here's a nifty little chart if you find it hard to tell the 8X and 8X Max apart.
