Huawei Honor 8 breaks cover with premium build and stellar specs… for $300

The Huawei Honor 8 has earlier today gone official in China, and the question on everyone’s lips is how does it differ from the high-end Honor V8 that the company first unveiled in its homeland and best market a couple of months back?

Well, for one thing, the newer flagship features a smaller 5.2-inch display, with no Quad HD option. The pixel count therefore caps off at 1,920 x 1,080, aka Full HD, while a Kirin 950 processor flies solo to run the hardware show, with no 955 upgrade possibility.

The battery inside the Honor 8 is understandably lighter too, at 3,000 mAh, and you can either opt for a 3GB RAM/32GB ROM variant or a much beefier one packing 4 gigs of memory, plus 64GB internal digital hoarding room.

The former will run you the rough equivalent of $300 (2,000 Yuan), whereas the latter costs CNY 2,500, or $375. Pretty small prices to pay for a stunning metal-framed, double glass panel-rocking slab that merely measures 7.45mm thick, weighing in at 153 grams, and wrapping up its decidedly premium spec sheet with dual 12MP rear cameras, a single 8-megapixel selfie shooter, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, fingerprint recognition, USB Type-C, and 4G LTE connectivity. Just don’t keep this bad boy hidden from Westerners, okay, Huawei?
