The Honor X8 4G smartphone has passed through FCC and TUV Rheinland certification websites, hinting at its imminent launch. As a reminder, Honor unveiled the Magic 4 series smartphones during the recently concluded MWC 2022. Now continuing its launch frenzy, Honor is now gearing up to announce a new budget phone in its X series. Moreover, the smartphone is said to carry the Honor X8 moniker.
Last month, the Honor X8 made an appearance online in the form of design renders. Additionally, the leak (via WinFuture) had shed some light on the main specs and pricing of the upcoming handset. Additionally, the leak suggests that the phone will be based on the Honor X30i smartphone which debuted in China in November. However, the X8 would only support 4G, unlike the 5G-enabled X30i smartphone.
Although details on the budget phone are still scarce, the Honor X8 has arrived on the FCC and TUV Rheinland certification websites. As expected, these listings reveal some of the major specs and features. The upcoming Honor X8 will target budget-conscious buyers. Now, the phone has been spotted on the FCC and TUV certification database bearing the model numbers TFY-LX2, TFY-LX1, and TFY-LX3. First, the FCC listing screenshot confirms the presence of Google apps and services.

Apart from this, the FCC listing reveals that the phone will support Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity. Unfortunately, it will not support 5G. Likewise, the TUV Rheinland database suggests that the X8 will get its juice from a 4,000mAh battery that supports 22.5W fast charging.
Moreover, the main specifications and features of the Honor X8 smartphone have surfaced online not too long ago. The phone is said to be launched in Europe with a price tag of around 200 Euros (around INR 16,700). Under the hood, the phone will pack an octa-core SoC with four Cortex-A73 cores running at 2.4GHz. On top of that, the processor has four Cortex-A53 cores with speeds of up to 1.9 GHz. Additionally, the phone will likely come with 6GB of RAM and offer 128GB of built-in storage capacity.
On the front, the X8 could sport a 6.7-inch LCD panel that offers Full HD resolution. Additionally, the front panel also houses a 16MP shooter for selfies and video calls. Similarly, the rear-mounted camera setup accommodates a 16 MP main camera, a 5 MP ultra-wide camera, and two 2 MP depth and macro shooters. Finally, the phone could boot Android 11 out of the box.
