Huawei has officially announced that its new Honor 8 will be making its way to India in October. Unfortunately, the brand hasn’t specified when exactly the handset will arrive in the country and what its asking price will be.
The Huawei Honor 8 first hit the scene in China back in July this year. Its base model offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM at CNY 1999 (roughly Rs 20000), while its mid-tier version serves up 4GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM at CNY 2299 (approx Rs 23000). The phone tops out with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM at CNY 2499 (about Rs 25000).
The Honor 8 can be seen as a mid-range alternative to the company’s flagship P9. The former also boasts of a 12MP dual-camera system which is comprised of a color and monochrome lens. However, it doesn’t have the premium stamp of Leica’s branding.
Other than this minor hiccup, the Huawei phone’s twin snappers come with number of skills such as hybrid auto-focus, dual ISP, and a wide aperture mode to blur backgrounds and shift the focus after a photo has been clicked. The brand also claims that it’s 8MP front-facing shooter can click high-quality selfies even in low light conditions.
