Huawei has introduced quite a few smartphones this year already. The company has not only release their flagship P9 and P9 Plus devices, but also quite a few additional phones through their Honor company. The Honor V8 is quite probably the most notable 'Honor' smartphone to be introduced this year, it's not only sleek-looking, but it also offers a really nice set of specs. That being said, some of you are probably wondering when will the company unveil the Honor 8, a successor to their Honor 7 smartphone. Well, the Honor 7 was announced back in July last year, which has to mean the Honor 8 is right around the corner, right? Well, it might be, read on.

We still do not know when will the Honor 8 going to be announced, but we presume it will happen in the next month or two. That being said, two variants of this handset surfaced in China, or at least it seems like it. The FRD-AL00 and FRD-TL10 models popped up, and according to the latest rumor, the Honor 8 will not only sport an aluminum frame, but also come with a 2.5D curved display, and a dual camera setup on the back. The phone will, reportedly, ship with two 12-megapixel snappers on the back, but don't expect to see Leica's lenses here, as it was the case with the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus. What about its specs? Well, the Honor 7 was a mid-range smartphone, but sported really compelling specifications. Some rumors suggest that the phone might ship with the Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core SoC, and even though that might be true, it is also possible that Huawei might opt to include the inferior Kirin 650 instead. The phone will quite probably ship with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and a Type-C USB port will be placed on its bottom.

The Honor 8 will be a metal unibody smartphone, and you can expect it to be quite affordable, just like its predecessor. The Honor 6, Honor 6 Plus and Honor 7 were selling really well for this China-based company, and they certainly expect the same from the Honor 8. As already mentioned, this device will quite probably arrive in the next month or two, though we do expect it to land in June, so stay tuned.
