Honor has extended its Android tablet offerings in China with the launch of the Pad X8. The tablet was made official alongside Honor’s new X40 5G smartphone. Check out the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Honor Pad X8 in Nepal.

Honor Pad X8 Overview:

Design and Display

Starting off with the design, the Honor Pad X8 looks quite dated with its bland aluminum back panel. The tablet weighs approximately 460 grams and flaunts a thickness of 7.55mm. The two colors available are Dawn Blue and Mint Green.

Honor Pad X8 - Design

In terms of display, you get a 10.1-inch LCD panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio and 1920×1200 pixel resolution. It has a screen-to-body ratio of 80.6%.


Handling the performance on this device is a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC. It’s an octa-core chipset built on a 12nm process. Honor has paired the processor with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. In terms of software, the Honor Pad X8 boots on Magic UI 6.1 which is based on Android 12. It is quite odd to see a tablet launch with such an outdated OS in 2022.

Rest of the specs

For optics, the Honor Pad X8 has a 5MP primary rear camera and a 2MP selfie camera. Unlike the Honor Pad 8 with its 8-speaker setup, this one only has stereo speakers but supports Honor Histen sound effects.

Likewise, the battery is fairly small for a tablet at 5,100mAh. According to Honor, it takes about three hours to fully charge the tablet. There is no sim card support so the tablet relies on WiFi and Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity. It lacks a fingerprint scanner as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.
