While it may or may not get the opportunity to follow up the Nexus 6P with another Google-co-branded phablet this year, Huawei will definitely launch a few more Android high-enders over the next months after the recent introductions of the Honor 8, V8, as well as the non-Honor-named P9 and P9 Plus.
Both the Mate S and Mate 8 could be due sequels before long, and the Honor 8 is most likely to expand to US shores three weeks from tomorrow. But first, the Tenaa-revealed Honor V8 Max is certainly going official in China on August 1, only under a slightly different moniker.
The gargantuan 6.6-incher will be known as the Honor Note 8, according to a company-issued teaser image, in order to perhaps reduce confusion and naming similarities between all these affordable powerhouses.
That’s right, we expect the Note 8 to provide pretty sweet bang for buck factor too, at a starting price of $300 or so (2,000 Yuan), with Quad HD, aka 2K, aka 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, screen resolution in tow, among other premium goodies.
The “entry-level” configuration should feature 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage space, while an extra gig of memory and twice the ROM will cost 45 bucks more (CNY 2,300 in total).
