Now that OnePlus 3 and 3T come with 6GB RAM, it looks like Chinese phone makers are following the company for all possible flagships. Huawei just launched its new phone in Europe, the phone is named Honor 8 and it has some impressive specs for the price.
The phone runs on latest public Android version, the Nougat (however, Android 8.0’s preview is now out) and it has a 5.7-inch QHD LTPS LCD Display. The silicon inside the phone is Kirin 960 which has 4 Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz added with 4 Cortex A73 cores that are clocked at 2.4 GHz. As mentioned earlier, the phone packs 6GB RAM and it will have 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB using MicroSD cards.
The cameras are interesting too. Honor 8 Pro has an 8 Megapixel f/2.0 camera on the front for selfies and snapchatting and the rear of phone houses two cameras. Both are 12-megapixel shooters with f/2.2 aperture, laser autofocus, LED Flash and 4K video recording.
In the connectivity department, the phone has NFC support, 4G LTE, and Bluetooth v4.2. While the company has not said that it will support Google Daydream VR, the phone will come with a Google Cardboard viewer for VR.
At the time of writing, Honor 8 Pro is launched only in France, UK, Germany, Spain, and Switzerland. It costs GBP 480, which is roughly Rs 38,900 and it will start shipping from April 20.
