Huawei sub-brand Honor today announced a new flagship smartphone in India, the Honor 8 Pro. The smartphone was first announced in February this year as the Honor V9 for the Chinese market. It was later re-branded as the Honor 8 Pro for the European market, where it went on sale in April this year. Honor hasn’t announced the exact pricing for the Honor 8 Pro in India, nor do we know anything regarding the smartphone’s availability.
The Honor 8 Pro features a large 5.7-inch sized LTPS LCD display with 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution and runs on Huawei’s in-house developed Kirin 960 octa-core SoC clocked at 2.4 GHz. While the Kirin 960 may not be the most powerful SoC around anymore, it is still a fairly capable flagship SoC that provides fantastic performance. Complementing the 64-bit Octa-core chipset is 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and an impressive 128GB of built-in storage. The smartphone includes a Hybrid Dual SIM slot, so you can choose to expand the storage further by up to 256GB with a microSD card.
Similar to quite a few new flagship smartphones, the Honor 8 Pro too features dual cameras at the rear. Honor has gone with two 12MP resolution sensors, paired with f/2.2 aperture lenses. The two sensors integrate laser autofocus technology and can capture videos at up to 4K resolution. Just like similar setups on other Huawei flagships, one of the sensors takes images in monochrome while the other can capture color shots. The fingerprint sensor too has been positioned at the back of the handset. For selfies, the Honor 8 Pro offers an 8MP snapper on the front.
Connectivity specs include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C port, NFC, and 4G VoLTE. The smartphone packs a large 4,000mAh capacity battery inside, so battery life is likely to be very impressive. In terms of software, the Honor 8 Pro runs Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 skin running on top.
