Huawei's sub brand Honor is all set to launch the company's latest smartphone- Honor 8 in India today. Honor 8 is company's flagship offering in India for 2016 and will fight the likes of OnePlus 3, LeEco Le Max 2, Xiaomi Mi 5 and other sub Rs. 28,000 smartphones. The company will reveal the pricing and availability details at the launch event.
The highlight of the smartphone is its dual-rear camera setup (12+12MP). One sensor captures the monochrome shades and the other captures the colour information. Post that, the camera combines the both and produce a single image.
We have been using the smartphone for over a week and are quite impressed with its camera performance.
Honor 8 is entirely built out of metal and glass and looks quite premium. The handset has 2.5D curved glass on front and back that seamlesaly blends into the side metal frame. Despite an all metal and glass construction, Honor 8 does not easily slip from hands. Besides, the smartphone is quite compact and can be easily used with one hand.
The smartphone features a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) LTPS LCD display with a pixel density of 423ppi. It is powered by Huawei's in-house 1.8GHz Kirin 950 octa-core processor with 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage. The launch event will clear the air whether Huawei will launch both the variants or will settle with one for the Indian market.
The Honor 8 packs a 3,000mAh non-removable battery unit, and has Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC as connectivity options.
