The Honor Pad 8 was released for Chinese consumers in July and hit the global market 1.5 months later. Now, the indie brand lists a Pad X8 Lite on its website, which sounds like a more affordable option, but upon further inspection, we realize it’s a renamed Honor with a Helio P Tab 711T chipset and older versions of Android.
The device is equipped with a 9.7 inch LCD with a resolution of
x 800 pixels . Internally, the Mediatek chipset has 32 GB of storage to keep it company, which is extremely low and nowhere near 200 Kudos to the GB option for its home crowd. There’s no mention of RAM, we can only hope it’s 4 GB.
The camera on the back is 5 MP without any LED flash. The front camera for video calls and work/study situations from home is 2 MP.
User interface is based on Android Magic UI 6.1 10 (Yes real). Since this tablet is all about productivity, it can have up to 4 apps open on the screen at the same time, and it also offers an e-book mode that mimics an e-ink reader. The Pad X8 Lite is TUV Rheinland certified for low blue light levels
Other specs include two large speakers on two short sides, a 5, 128 mAh battery charges via micro USB port, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 802. 003 a/b/g/n/ac. No 3.5mm audio jack.
The Honor Pad X8 Lite is listed on the global website in the new mint color, with no word on availability or if there is an LTE variant. Looking at how the Tab 7 was priced in China last year, we can only assume that this version will cost less than $200.
