The Honor 8 is the latest smartphone that came from Huawei’s subsidy, Honor. This company had introduced several smartphones this year, and their Honor 5X was especially popular amongst the consumers, and still is. Huawei’s sales are right on track, and if they keep this up, 2016 might be yet another record year for the company which managed to become the world’s third-largest smartphone manufacturer last year. That being said, the Honor 8 has been announced a couple of days ago, and it seems like it will launch in the US soon as well. We’ve also seen the first teardown of this device, and now have some sales info to share with you, read on.
The Honor 8 was introduced four days ago, and in that time the company has received over 5 million registration for the device in China, which is crazy. All those people will be able to participate in the flash sale which is taking place on July 19th in China. So, nobody purchased the device just yet, these are only registrations so that people can participate in the upcoming flash sale, though we’re certain Honor won’t have 5 million units to sell on July 19th, not even close. For those of you who live in China and still haven’t registered, you can do so until July 18th, in case you’re interested, of course.
That being said, Honor had introduced three variants of the Honor 8. The base model comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, and costs $299. There are two 4GB RAM variants of this smartphone, the more affordable one comes with 32GB of storage, while the more expensive one ships with 64GB of native storage. These two 4GB RAM models are priced at $343 and $374, respectively. The Honor 8 sports a 5.2-inch fullHD display, and it is fueled by the Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core processor. The 3,000mAh battery is included here as well, and it is not removable. The Honor 8 ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 4.1 skin on top of it. Two 12-megapixel cameras are available on the back of this phone, and the device is made out of metal and glass.
