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.
