Huawei has launched its new device, Honor 8 in China. It seems that Huawei has launched this device to compete against the rival Xioami’s Mi Max. Honor 8 have huge 6.6 Inch QHD display.
It packs HiSilicon Kirin 955 SoC and a Mali-T880 MP4 GPU, the same configuration as the one we’ve seen in the Huawei P9. The Note 8 comes with 4GB of RAM, 32/64/128GB storage, 13MP camera at the back, 8MP front shooter with 85-degree wide-angle lens, fingerprint sensor, LTE, and a 4500mAh battery.
In connectivity you will get Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, GPS/GLONASS/Beidou and Bluetooth v4.2, but there’s no NFC support. The port on the bottom is USB Type-C, it only conforms to USB 2.0 specs. The device measures 178.8 x 90.9 x 7.18mm, while weight is a reasonable 219g. The phablet runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
It’s price is CNY 2,299 ($345) for the 32GB base variant, twice the storage means CNY 2,499 ($375), and the 128GB top model will set you back CNY 2,799 ($420). Global availability remains to be detailed.
