Huawei has confirmed that its dual-camera based Honor 8 smartphone will launch in India in the coming weeks. The smartphone offers a dual-camera setup similar to its flagship P9 sans the Leica optics.
Honor 8 is the successor to the company’s flagship model, Honor 7 and the onus is again on camera. Honor 7 offered an exceptional camera for the price and Honor 8 adds another lens to the equation. Honor 8 is a 7.5mm thick smartphone that weighs 153 grams. The smartphone features a non-removable battery and will be available in Black, Blue and White colour variants.
Huawei Honor 8 features a 5.2-inch full HD display with 96 per cent NTSC colours and a contrast ratio of 1500:1. The smartphone offers dual 12MP rear camera similar to P9. One of the image sensor is used for monochrome while another sensor is used for colours. Both the cameras feature f/2.2 aperture and support 1080p video recording.
Honor 8 like most other smartphones launching these days uses USB-C port for charging and supports Bluetooth 4.2, GPS with Glonass and dual-band WiFi. Honor 8 runs EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The smartphone was launched at $400 (approximately 27,000) in the US recently.
