Product Brief

Fast speeds for greater needs.

X8 LTE supports download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 100 Mbps, with 2x20 MHz carrier aggregation in both uplink and downlink. That’s a whole lot of high resolution photos and videos.

Peace of mind.

Qualcomm® Safeswitch™ technology is engineered to disable your device if it’s stolen or lost. And when you find your phone underneath the couch, Safeswitch turns it back into a smartphone.

Less time charging.

Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0 is up to four times as fast as conventional charging and is 38% more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0. Spend less time charging and more time doing.
