Huawei mobiles have officially revealed their next honor smartphone entitled as Honor Note 8. The company had already launched the Honor 8 and Honor V8 which featured dual-lens similar to Huawei P9 and P9 Plus but without Leica branding. The Honor Note 8 seems like an obvious troll by Huawei against Samsung’s upcoming Note 7 (going to be launched tomorrow).
The Huawei Honor Note 8 sports a humongous 6.6-inch Super AMOLED Quad-HD display (2560 x 1440 pixels) alongside 2.5D glass complementing its look. Inside, the smartphone is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 955 octa-core processor bearing a clock speed of 2.5GHz, and 4GB of RAM. The smartphone is available in 3 different variants, including 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB alongside a slot for microSD card.
While the Honor 8 and V8 had the dual-camera lens, the Honor Note 8 comes with a single 13MP sensor at the back with PDAF and dual-tone LED flash. Upfront, there is an 8MP sensor which is capable of capturing great selfies, thanks to its wide-angle lens. The whole phone is powered by a massive 4,500mAh battery which complements its huge 6.6-inch screen. The whole phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow on top of Huawei’s EMUI 4.1. Connectivity wise, the Honor Note 8 supports dual-SIM, 4G LTE, VoLTE, dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and USB Type-C port for data exchange.
As far as the pricing is concerned, the Huawei Honor Note 8 32GB variant is priced at 2299 Yuan($335), 64GB variant at 2499 Yuan($376) and 128GB variant at 2799 Yuan($421). The phone can be pre-ordered today, whereas the sales will start from 9th of August. There are no words of availability of this smartphone in Nepal.
