Huawei has announced Honor V8, the company’s latest flagship smartphone in the honor series. It packs a 5.7-inch Full HD or a Quad HD 2.5D curved glass display, is powered by an Octa-Core Kirin 950 / 955 SoC and runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with EMUI 4.1 on top. The main highlight of the smartphone are the dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with laser auto focus and 1.76-micron pixel size promising brilliant image quality in low-light conditions.
Connectivity is well covered, with all models supporting LTE, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS. The base model does lack support for NFC though. The metal-clad smartphone measures 157×77.6×7.75mm and weighs 170g. Battery capacity is listed at 3,500mAh, and charging takes place via a USB Type-C interface.
Price has been set at CNY 2,299 (about $350) for a carrier-specific base model with a FullHD display, 32GB of storage and no NFC. Wider network support and NFC will set you back an additional CNY 200, while the top-specced version will go for CNY 2,799 ($439).
