#PhoneNews – Huawei’s Honor Makes It’s First Flagship Available For The US Markets

Huawei’s sister OEM, Honor has just made available it’s first major “flagship” for the US markets with the launch of its “Honor 8” smartphone.

The Honor 8 Is indeed slim, elegant and svelte with its glass front and back edged by brushed aluminium. One cannot help but also observe how much of the Apple iPhone 6 it looks like. 

Featuring a 5.2in IPS ‎LCD 1080x1920p FullHD screen, the Honor 8 handles tasks through its Octacore Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 950 CPU with max clock speed set at 2.3GHz. Helping you maneuver your way around apps conveniently is a big 4GB RAM, with support coming from 32/64GB ROM. The good news here is the presence of a microSD slot to accommodate ROM expansion up to 256GB.

Two 12MP Sony cameras with dual LED flash grace the rear end of the phone, with a smart fingerprint scanner too. The scanner, in addition to unlocking the phone in a flash, is able to launch assigned apps, answer or reject calls or take picture by a touch, two taps or a long press. ‎Within its slim build of 7.5mm thickness, a 3000mAh non-removable battery is within with fast charging support that sees it charge up to 50% in 30mins.

The Honor 8 runs on Android’s OS 6.0 and surprisingly also throws in an InfraRed P‎ort into the mix. Preorders are presently ongoing at Honor @ $399.99 for the 32GB variant and @ $449.99 for the 64GB variant.
