Announcement. Honor Pad X8 - a simple tablet and a bit of archaeological research

In China, a couple of days ago, an inexpensivetablet Honor Pad X8 (aka, if in hieroglyphs, 荣耀平板X8). About the characteristics - a little later, they are trivial. In the meantime, a little background, genealogical and archaeological research.

Honor Pad X8 is almost identical to the one just announcedpreviously tablet Honor Pad X8 Lite. In fact, they are even clearly made in the same case. Identical batteries, chipsets and cameras. different amount of memory. And - the main difference - the screens are different. FHD (224 ppi) for X8 and HD (156 ppi) for X8 Lite.

Interestingly, despite the strictly identical dimensions and weight, the diagonals of the screens are slightly different. 10.1″ (296 cm²) on the X8 and 9.7″ (273 cm²) on its ancestor.

If you look even a little further into the depths of centuries,then you can find that in 2020 another pair of tablets was released in exactly the same case. These are Honor Pad 6 10.1 with FHD screen and Honor Pad X6 9.7 with HD matrix. These dinosaurs differ from their heirs in the chipset - HiSilicon Kirin 710A is there. And they also have support for mobile networks (LTE). The new couple of tablets is deprived of it - there is only Wi-Fi.

Well, about the characteristics of Honor Pad X8.

The chipset is MediaTek MT8786, which is supposedly a tablet-tailored modification of the MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. In AnTuTu we are waiting for about two hundred thousand points.

There is some confusion about memory.There should definitely be varieties of 4 + 128 and 6 + 128 GB. Plus, the official specification also mentions a version with 64 GB of permanent memory. Most likely, it will be 4+64 GB, but this is inaccurate. Support for memory cards, of course, is.

The screen is simple. IPS-matrix with a diagonal of 10.1 ″ (296 cm²) and a resolution of 1920 × 1200 (224 ppi). There is no increased refresh rate.

The battery is not impressive, 5100 mAh. The cameras are symbolic - 2 MP in front, 5 MP in the back.

Wi-Fi is dual-band, there is Type-C.

At launch, the Honor Pad X8 will cost ¥1,199 (₽10,200, $171) for the 4+128 GB variant and ¥1,299 (₽11,100, $185) for the top 6+128 GB variant.
