Honor's gaming phone is here: behold the Honor Play

But the Honor 8X and the Honor 8X Max will be the real deal, and because Honor has been very active in India recently, these phones should be launched here soon enough.

Alongside its range of products like the Honor 10 and Honor 7X, the Honor brand has just revealed that the Honor Play is coming to the United Kingdom after launching in China back in July.

Honor has unveiled half a dozen handsets in the country in the last few months, as the company plans to expand rapidly in the Indian market.

Honor has announced the Honor Play, a new big screen device with gaming front and centre. And the specifications of the phones have been reportedly been leaked on TENAA, which is the Chinese certification website.

In terms of optics, the Honor 8X will bear a dual rear camera module with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. One thing that we weren't sure about is what chipset the phones will use, either the Snapdragon 636 or 660.

The smartphone will be available with Android operating system 8.1 Oreo, augmented branded add-in EMUI 8. For Android 9.0 Pie, you will have to wait till the next year. It will also support expandable storage up to 256GB via microSD card slot.

Here’s Why Android Users Shift To iOS According To A New Survey
Out of the total sample size, 54 percent of consumers owned the iPhone, 27 percent owned a Samsung device running Android . The study was conducted on 2,500 smartphone users in the United States in the month of August 2018.

Finally, there's a rear fingerprint scanner and a vertically aligned dual camera on the back; on the base of the phone there's a 3.5mm headphone socket.

The Honor 8X Max is going to be a maxed out version of Honor 8X with similar internals. The Honor 8X Max will reportedly pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, and a larger 7.12-inch screen.

The Honor 8X Max will probably have a few better features compared to the standard Honor 8X.

According to the leak the phone would be launched at an event in China on 5th September. Launched by the company in October previous year, Honor 7X has done well in both in its home market China and India respectively.

The Honor 8X and 8X Max will not have many differences except for when it comes to size as the name "Max" suggests. The date of launch for these devices in India has not been confirmed yet. Coming to the price, Honor 8X is expected to be priced somewhere between Rs 12,000 to Rs 15,000.
