Huawei Honor Note 8 goes big on screen and battery while keeping the price relatively low

By Adrian Diaconescu August 1, 2016, 5:39 am

We can’t be sure Huawei’s intention today is to troll Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 announcement scheduled for tomorrow, but clearly, Honor V8 Max was a more fitting name for the 6.6-inch beast ultimately branded as Honor Note 8.

Note, mind you, isn’t a label the fast-rising Chinese OEM routinely uses to designate its phablets (or any other products), and besides, the Huawei Honor Note 8 appears to lack stylus support and note-taking software enhancements in general.

At the end of the day though, this colossus is too large, uncomfortable to maneuver and even forgettable to play in the same league as the super-highly-anticipated GNote 7. It tips the scales at 219 grams, and it’s essentially a jumbo-sized Honor V8… with a single 13MP camera slapped on its back.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

The Super AMOLED display should be a delight, delivering Quad HD resolution, and the other major selling point is probably the 4,500 mAh battery. The rest of the features are solid but just too similar to what the Honor V8 and Huawei P9 Plus bring to the table, including 4GB RAM, Kirin 955 processing power, an 8MP selfie snapper, fingerprint recognition, up to 128GB internal storage, microSD card slot, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and USB Type-C connectivity.

The Huawei Honor Note 8 will go on sale in China (and likely, China only) on August 9, starting at 2,300 Yuan, or $345, in a 32GB ROM configuration.
