The Honor 8C was previously spotted on TENAA.

The Honor 8C will be a budget offering from the brand. According to TENAA, the smartphone will have a 6.2-inch IPS LCD screen with HD+ (1520 x 720p) resolution screen with 2.5D curved tempered glass protection. The smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Octa-core SoC with 1.8 GHz clock speed, coupled with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot for additional storage expansion.

The smartphone has a dual camera setup with a 13 MP primary sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor to assist portrait mode. The device has an 8 MP selfie camera which is likely to offer Face Unlock with 1080p video recording capability.

Going by the capabilities of the chipset, the Honor 8C is likely to offer dual LTE or VoLTE with support for Bluetooth 5.0, and dual-band Wi-Fi. The phone will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI 8 OS. Lastly, a 4000 mAh battery backs the smartphone with a micro USB port for charging and data syncing with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.


Considering the prices of the previous Honor smartphones, the Honor 8C is likely to cost less than Rs 15,000 ($150) in India for the base variant with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The company might also launch a higher RAM/storage variant as well.
