The last year or two has been a very good period for Huawei as the company has managed to increase its presence and brand-awareness in both the flagship smartphone sector, as well as the Android Wear market.

In terms of the cameras, the Honor 8 comes equipped with a 12-megapixel dual lens rear camera, along with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. As is common now, this is also a smartphone which adds an additional layer of security thanks to the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner on the rear, while additional features include USB Type-C connectivity, faster charging speeds, NFC, and a 3,000 mAh battery. In terms of the operating system, the Honor 8 comes running on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with Huawei’s EMUI 4.1 over the top and network compatibility details that this is a smartphone which will work on 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz and 4G: FDD-LTE 1700/1800/2100/2600 MHz
