April 20, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Huawei has been quite busy this year. The company has rolled out the MediaPad M2 10.0 tablet back in January, and they’ve also introduced their new flagship devices quite recently, the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus. Earlier today we’ve reported that the MediaPad T1 7.0 Plus tablet has also been announced, in the Philippines, and we know for a fact that the Honor 5C mid-range handset will be announced on April 28th. Well, Huawei’s Honor sub-brand has shared yet another teaser on Weibo (Chinese social network), and this teaser is quite revealing, read on.

If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see a clear indication that the Honor V8 is on the way, and Huawei also hints at the dual camera setup on this phone as well. The Honor 6 Plus had a dual camera setup and was announced back in 2014, while the P9 and P9 Plus also sport such a setup. The Honor V8 will be the second Honor-branded smartphone to sport the dual camera setup, and it seems like this will be a direct successor to the Honor 7 which was introduced in June last year. The company has also shared the release date for this smartphone, it seems like it will be introduced on May 10th in China.

Now, as far as specs go, we really don’t have all that much info at the moment, but some rumors are indicating that it might ship with two 12-megapixel sensors on the back, just like the P9 and P9 Plus, but without Leica’s lenses. Huawei’s Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core SoC could be the perfect processor for this phone, and the Honor V8 will probably ship with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM on the inside. The fingerprint scanner will probably also be included here, and the device will be made out of metal. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come out of the box, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) skin.

That is pretty much all the info we have at the moment. The Honor 6, Honor 6 Plus and Honor 7 have been selling really well for the company, and they high expectations for this smartphone as well. Huawei aims to sell 140 million smartphones this year, and in order to succeed, they’ll surely need to release quite a few appealing products, and the Honor V8 sure does seem promising.
