Huawei’s Honor brand today unwrapped its newest Android smartphone, the Honor 8.
One of the highlight features of the Honor 8 is its dual rear camera setup. It’s got two 12-megapixel cameras on its backside, one of which is a color lens and the other being a black and white lens. Honor says that this dual lens setup helps the Honor 8 to capture more light than a single lens. Meanwhile, the front of the Honor 8 houses an 8-megapixel camera for all of your selfie needs.
Also included with the Honor 8 is a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 display, octa-core Kirin 950 processor, a microSD slot, a 3000mAh battery, USB Type-C port, NFC and a fingerprint reader on its backside. There are a few memory configurations available: 3GB/32GB, 4GB/32GB, and 4GB/64GB. All of those features are wrapped in a 2.5D glass body that measures 7.45mm thick. On the software side, the Honor 8 runs Android 6.0 below Huawei’s custom EMUI 4.1 user interface.
The Honor 8 is now available for pre-order in China, with pricing set at ¥1999 ($299 USD) for the 3GB/32GB model, ¥2299 ($344 USD) for the 4GB/32GB version, and ¥2499 ($374 USD) for the top-end 4GB/64GB model.
