Honor is Huawei’s subsidy, and quite a successful company on its own. This China-based smartphone manufacturer had released a couple of really compelling devices this year, like the Honor 5C and Honor V8, for example. That being said, it seems like Honor plans to introduce a new smartphone really soon, the Honor 8. The Honor 7 was introduced last year, and was quite a successful phone, Honor managed to sell quite a few units, and they’re expecting to see an even better sales number for its successor.
A recent rumor said that the Honor 8 will arrive on July 5th in three variants, though Honor did not confirm that the Honor 8 is coming, nor when will it launch, well, until now that is. The company still did not confirm the exact launch date, but they’ve at least confirmed that the device is right around the corner by releasing an official teaser. The company has shared an image through their official Weibo (Chinese social network) page. The teaser clearly hints at Honor 8 launch (take a look at the back of the jersey), though there’s not an exact date on the image. Now, if a recent rumor is to be believed, the Honor 8 will be announced on July 5th, and it will hit stores on July 12th, but we’ll see what happens.
The Honor 8 is actually expected to ship with a 5.2-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 4GB of RAM and either the Kirin 650 or Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core SoC. The 3,200mAh battery was also mentioned in a recent rumor, and you expect to see a fingerprint scanner on its back as well. This smartphone will be made out of metal, and a Type-C port will be placed on the bottom of the phone. The device will, allegedly, come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants. The 32GB model will be available both without NFC and with NFC, and these two variants are rumored to cost 1,999 Yuan ($308) and 2,199 Yuan ($334), respectively. The 64GB and 128GB storage models will be priced at 2,499 ($380) and 2,799 Yuan ($425) if rumors are to be believed. That is more or less it, the device will launch soon, and if any interesting info pops up before the phone arrives, we'll make sure to let you know.
