Huawei’s sub brand Honor introduced the Honor 8 Pro smartphone in China back in February this year. It was introduced in China as the Honor V9 .
Now the Honor 8 Pro has been officially introduced in India with availability starting in July. In terms of basic specifications and features, the Honor 8 Pro comes with phablet sized 5.7-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560x1440p. The display panel used is much older TFT. It is powered by an Octa-Core HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipset coupled with Mali G-71 GPU. The company is giving us 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM in the Honor 8 Pro. The Honor 8 Pro comes with 128GB of internal storage variants with MicroSD card slot. So yes, India gets the higher end (6GB+128GB) variant instead of 4GB+64GB one.
In terms of camera, it has got 12MP of dual sensors at the back. The rear cameras have F/2.2 aperture which isn’t such large as expected. The main camera at rear side has dual LED flash. On the front, we have got 8MP sensor with wide angle lens. The rear camera of Honor V8 Pro is touted as world’s first mobile camera with 3D modelling. Honor has managed to fit 4000mAh battery in a 6.97mm slim frame. We expect it to provide great battery performance. Dimensions of Honor 8 Pro are 157 x 77.5 x 6.97 mm and weighing and weighs 184 grams.
