After being in the rumor circle for quite some time, Huawei has officially announced Honor 8 which is the latest smartphone by its hugely successful Honor sub-brand. Built with a 5.2-inch full HD display, the brand new smartphone is powered by 2.3GHz Kirin 950 octa-core processor which is produced by Huawei itself.
Built with glass body that is supported by a metal frame, the combination gives the Honor 8 its premium look. The 153 grams’ smartphone is available with three different memory and storage configurations: 3GB RAM + 32GB, 4GB RAM + 32GB, and 4GB RAM + 64GB while it also comes standard with 3,000 mAh battery and fast charging (9V2A) capability.
Of course, one of the Honor 8’s main highlight is the dual camera on its back which is a reminiscence of the recently launch Huawei P9. Featuring two 12-megapixels sensors, 6-elements f/2.2 lens, dual-tone LED LED flash, and laser autofocus system, the camera is actually more similar in nature to those on Honor V8 which is not released in Malaysia.
Pre-installed with EMUI 4.1 on top of its Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, the Honor 8 is also equipped with an 8-megapixels front camera with f/2.4 lens alongside NFC, fingerprint sensor on its rear, dual-band Wi-Fi, and USB Type-C port. To be made available in China later this month, the Honor 8 with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage model goes for CNY 1,999 (about RM 1,195) while the 4GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB variants are priced at CNY 2299 (about RM 1,375), and CNY 2,499 (about RM 1,494) respectively.
