A couple of weeks after the TENAA certification, Huawei has officially unveiled the new Honor 8. It’s different from the Honor V8 but it basically looks the same. It’s not a premium flagship phone but some of the specs are similar to the Huawei P9. The new Honor 8 comes equipped with a 5.2-inch screen with 1080p display, Dual 12MP camera system with f/2.2 aperture, 8MP selfie cam f/2.4, and a Kirin 950 processor.

There’s also WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE connectivity, dual SIM support, and a 3000mAh battery. This Honor phone already comes with a USB Type-C port and fingerprint scanner found on the back.

Phone is powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow topped by EMUI 4.1. As for the dimensions, phone measures 145.5 x 71 x 7.45mm and weighs only 153g. Color options include Sapphire Blue, Midnight Black, Sakura Pink, Sunrise Gold, and Pearl White. It will be ready starting July 19 in China in two variants: 3GB of RAM/32GB storage and 4GB RAM/32GB. Listed prices are CNY 1,999 ($298) and CNY 2,299 ($343), respectively. The 4GB RAM is also available with 64GB onboard storage.

Not all variants will be ready in all colors. We’re also not sure when it will be available internationally apart from China but Huawei is all set in offering the handset in Europe via the online store.
