No news if these two phones will drop in the Philippines

Huawei sub-brand Honor has officially announced two of their latest smartphones in an event in China yesterday: the Honor 8X and 8X Max.

The smaller of the two phones sport the HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset that’s already made an appearance in Huawei’s Nova 3i, along with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM plus the 20-megapixel f/1.8 rear camera paired with a 2-megapixel secondary shooter and a 16-megapixel f/2.0  camera on the front.

It has a 6.5-inch display with the usual notch that comes with phones nowadays, along with a 3750mAh battery.

It comes with a 16-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera paired with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and an 8-megapixel f/2.0 selfie cam.

The 8X Max has a massive 5000mAh battery thanks to its sheer physical size.
