Honor series flagship have always posed as impressive options for mid-range buyers. The Honor 8 is powered by Kirin 950 processor (16nm) octa-core chipset and runs the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow based EMUI 4.0 software.
The Honor 8 is a compact handset with a 5.2-inch full HD display that has a 2.5D curved glass layered on top. The handset is available in three variants - 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 32GB Storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage.
The biggest highlight of this hybrid dual SIM handset is its dual rear camera setup. Yes, besides the 8MP front camera, the Honor 8 makes room for two more camera sensors (12MP each) on the rear. The extra sensor is most probably used as a depth sensor, just as we experienced in the Honor 6 Plus.
Other features include a fingerprint sensor, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, Infrared sensor and a 3000 mAh battery that supports fast charging.
The Honor 8 has been launched in several color options including Pearl White, Sunrise Gold, Midnight Black, Sakura Pink and Sapphire Blue colors. The lowest price of Honor 8 in India is expected to be around 20,000 INR, which should be pretty aggressive.
