Huawei has unveiled the Honor Note 8 in China. The Honor Note 8 is a phablet device with a 6.6-inch screen, a Kirin 955 SoC and 4GB of RAM.
The Huawei Honor Note 8 features a 6.6-inch screen and a resolution of 2K (2560x1440). The device is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 955 SoC that packs in four Cortex-A72 and four Cortex-A53 cores as well as a Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. GSMArena reports that the device will come with 4GB RAM and that a cheaper, 3GB variant is also rumoured to be around. The SoC is coupled with 32/64/128GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera.
There is support for a microSD card, but you’ll need to sacrifice one of the two nano-SIM slots for that. While the phone is a dual-SIM device, only one SIM supports 3G/4G; the other is relegated to 2G only. The device will run Android 6.0.
Other than that, you get the usual assortment of Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, Bluetooth v4.2, USB Type-C, NFC, etc. connectivity options. All of this, and a 4,500mAh battery is packed into a device that weighs only 219g.
Pricing starts at around Rs 23,000 for the 32GB model and goes up to around Rs 28,000 for the 128GB model. Of course, these are Chinese prices and one can expect Indian and global prices to vary.
