Huawei outs Honor V8 with dual 12MP cameras, Kirin 950 SoC

Huawei Honor V8

The Huawei Honor V8 has finally been unveiled in China, staying true to rumors which had predicted a P9-esque dual-camera setup without the Leica branding. Unfortunately, the manufacturer hasn’t announced when exactly the phone will be made available outside its home base.

Huawei is selling the Honor V8 in 3 different configurations. The base model is priced at CNY 2299 (roughly $353 or Rs 23500) and sports 4GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM and a 1080p screen. The second goes for CNY 2499 (approx $383 or Rs 25500) and ships with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, NFC and a full HD screen.

Finally, the most expensive of the lot is up for CNY 2799 (about $430 or Rs 28600) and offers 4GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM and a QHD (1440 x 2560p) screen. The Honor V8 has been stuffed to the brim with high end specs. It’s pretty big at 5.7-inch in terms of display size and runs on the brand’s top-of-the-line octa-core Kirin 950 processor.

The headline-grabbing feature of the Huawei phone is of course its twin-snapper system, reminiscent of the company’s flagship P9. The two 12MP shooters are accompanied by laser autofocus, a BSI sensor, an aperture of f/2.2 and dual-tone LED flash. There’s also an 8MP lens on the front surface for selfies and video calls.
