Earlier today, Honor announced the all-new Honor 6X at an event in China, but that wasn’t everything that was revealed during the event. The company also announced a new 8-inch tablet, the Honor Pad 2, and a new smartwatch, the Honor Watch S1.
The Honor Pad 2 will feature an 8-inch IPS display powered by the Snapdragon 616 processor and 3GB of RAM. As for storage, there will be two different combinations for the Wi-Fi edition, with either 16GB or 32GB of storage possible and this can be expanded due to the included microSD card slot. Honor also announced an LTE variant of the Honor Pad 2 which features all of the same specs except for the fact that it is only available with 32GB of storage.
The Honor Pad 2 will also feature a 2MP front-facing camera, an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 4,800mAh battery. As for software, Honor is including Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with its own overlay, Emotion 4.1. The tablet will also be offered in two different color variants: Gold and White.
The Honor Watch S1 is the company’s newest smartwatch and features a round display with a dial. The smartwatch also is water-resistant up to 50 meters, meaning that you’ll be able to comfortably take it swimming with you, provided you don’t go swimming deep in the ocean. Additionally, you’ll be able to easily swap the bands as the Watch S1 makes it easy to switch things around. Finally, the Watch S1 features a heart-rate sensor and pedometer, and Honor is touting this new smartwatch to provide up to 6 days of battery life.
The Honor Pad 2 and Watch S1 will both launch in China on October 25th with pre-orders for both starting on October 19th. The new tablet will be priced at $149 for the 16GB Wi-Fi version, with the 32GB Wi-Fi version priced at $193, and the 32GB LTE-enabled model priced at $222. As for pricing of the Watch S1, the new smartwatch will be priced at $103 and comes in either Black, Blue, or Orange. Unfortunately, Honor did not make mention of International availability, so we aren’t sure if those of us on the other side of the world will even be able to get our hands on these new devices.
