Huawei has released quite a few devices this year already. The company has on only introduced their flagship Huawei P9 and P9 Plus handset, but has also rolled out their mid-range Huawei P9 Lite smartphone and two tablets, the MediaPad M2 and MediaPad T1 7.0 Plus. That being said, the company has also introduced their VR Headset recently, and tow more smartphones will be announced in the coming days / weeks, read on.
The company has already scheduled April 28th event for the Honor 5C announcement, and the Honor V8 will be introduced on May 10th, which was also confirmed by Honor, Huawei’s subsidiary. We’ve been wondering when will TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) release Honor V8 certification info, and that has happened quite recently. Two variants of the Honor V8 have been certified by TENAA, one variant is fueled by the Kirin 950 SoC, and comes with 32GB of internal storage, while the other variants comes with Kirin 955 and 64GB of native storage. That is actually the only difference between the two models, so let’s take a look at Honor V8’s other specs, shall we. The device will sport a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) 2.5D curved display, along with 4GB of RAM. Both Kirin 950 and Kirin 955 SoCs ship with the Mali T880 GPU for graphics, and two SIM card slots will also be available here. The 3,400mAh battery will be included in this package, and will not be removable. Speaking of which, you’ll also get fast charging with the Honor V8, and the fingerprint scanner will be placed on the back of the device. The infrared sensor will, interestingly enough, be included as well, and the Honor V8 is made out of metal. The 12-megapixel snapper will be available on the back of the device, and is flanked by the dual-LED, dual tone flash, and the Laser Autofocus. The 8-megapixel shooter can be found on the front side of the Honor V8, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed here, with Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) skin on top of it.
The Huawei Honor V8 will measure 157 x 77.6 x 7.75mm, while it will weight 170 grams. The phone will be available in Silver, Gold and Rose Gold color options according to TENAA, and it will launch soon. As already mentioned, the phone will come to life on May 10th, the same day Xiaomi plans to release their Xiaomi Max phablet.
