honor has grown at a steady pace in recent years, and the sub-brand of Huawei has just launched the honor 8 Pro in Europe. Essentially, this new flagship is the global variant of the honor V9, which was introduced in China just two months ago.
Aside from the different names, the honor 8 Pro shares almost the same specifications as the honor V9. These include a 5.7-inch 1440p display, a HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor paired with up to 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, a generous 4,000mAh battery, as well as EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
In comparison to the honor 8, this Pro variant no longer has the very sleek-looking glass back anymore. Instead, the honor 8 Pro has a full-metal body, which still looks rather svelte. Other than that, the same 12MP dual-camera setup found on the honor 8 is featured here too; there’s also an 8MP front-facing shooter.
Rounding out the specifications of the honor 8 Pro are a rear fingerprint sensor, dual-SIM support (naturally), NFC, as well as a USB Type-C port. On top of that, it’s rather interesting that the 8 Pro’s packaging can be converted into a Google Cardboard; a feature it shares with the honor V9.
The honor 8 Pro will begin shipping in Europe on 20th April, and it will retail from £474.99, which comes up to about RM2,630. Considering the fact that honor has quite a presence locally, it’s likely that the honor 8 Pro will be available in Malaysia sometime in the future.
