Chinese phone company Huawei’s sub-brand Honor launched its much-awaited Honor 8 Pro smartphone on 6th July, 2017.
The device comes with a 14.47cm 2K display and a 4000 mAh battery and has a rear dual-camera setup.
The phone will be available in the Midnight Black and Navy Blue colour variants and is an Amazon-exclusive launch.
The device is bundled with a 9V/2A fast charger, standard USB-C cable.
The most exciting part is that the phone comes in a box that can be used as a VR headset – thus, making VR experience easier and accessible easily.
P Sanjeev, Vice President Sales, Huawei India-Consumer Business Group, said, “Honor is committed to scale new heights of product innovation and customer centricity through its products. We are focused on embedding powerful features in our devices at an affordable price to accommodate consumers’ lifestyle. With the Honor 8 Pro, we set out to push the boundaries on all fronts. The Honor 8 Pro offers market-leading specifications by pushing the boundary of smartphone design, providing 2K display, extra-long battery life, dual camera setup and delivering powerful performance to ensure best experiences across the scenarios that today’s smartphone users care most about. Honor can do this like no other due to its unique e-commerce business model and world-class R&D capabilities.”
The feature-packed Honor 8 Pro runs on a 16NM Kirin 960 octa-core processor and uses the EMUI 5.1 based on Android Nougat . The device has a 128GB ROM, expandable with a micro-SD card. It comes with 6GB of RAM.
The phone’s dual 12MP cameras – one mono-chrome and the other RGB- work together to take the perfect photo with the right colours and the right depth.
The DSLR-like depth of field effects for both photo and video shooting is created by the camera’s wide aperture range (f/0.95–f/16).
Honor 8 Pro also supports 4K video recording and promises smaller file size with the H.265 codec use.
It also comes with a new feature called ‘Highlights’ co-developed with GoPro that allows efficient and intelligent organizing of photos by category and provides a feature for creating video stories.
The device’s Mali-G71 MP8 graphics processor also ensures high quality graphic performance.
The device supports World 4G+ and VoLTE features and has a hybrid SIM slot.
It also packs in GPS with AGPS, GLONASS and BeiDou Navigation Satellite System support.
Connectivity options also include Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and WiFi.
Priced at Rs. 29,999 and available exclusively on Amazon, the feature-packed device with its pro-level performance and deliverables is sure to make it a device worth buying.
