Huawei has updated its Honor offering with the Honor 8 in China. The Honor 8 comes with a dual primary camera setup just like the Honor 6 Plus and Honor V8. The Metal chassis and the 2.5D glass impart a premium look to the Honor 8. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back and the overall design looks impressive.
The Honor 8 features a 5.2-inch FHD display and draws power from a Kirin 950 SoC clocked at 2.3GHz and paired with a 3GB/4GB RAM. It is worth noting that the Kirin 950 is manufactured using the 16nm process and is the same chipset that is doing its duty in Huawei Mate 8. The Honor 8 will be available in two variant’s 3GB/4GB RAM GB and 32GB/64GB Storage.
The dual camera setup constitutes a 12-Megapixel primary sensor on the rear and an 8-Megapixel sensor on the front. In line with the other devices in the Honor line-up, the fingerprint sensor is situated at the back and also doubles up as a camera shutter button. The phone is backed up by a 3000mAh battery and it comes with fast charging support. The Honor 8 comes with the usual bevy of connectivity features including NFC chipset and runs on EMUI 4.1 based on Android Marshmallow out of the box.
The 3GB variant is priced at 1999(apprx. Rs 20,000) Yuan and the top end 4GB RAM variant costs 2299(apprx.23,050) for 32GB storage and 2499(apprx.Rs 25,000) for 64GB Storage. It’s good to see that the customers can choose the combo they want to for example if you want more storage but 3GB of RAM will suffice you can buy the variant unlike other devices wherein the RAM option and the Storage options are interlaced. The Honor 8 will be available in Charm Navy, Streamer Gold, Pearl White, Phantom Black and Cherry Pink colors and the actual registrations for the same starts from July 19th.
