Huawei is set to launch its Honor 8 smartphone in India today. The launch is taking place on the same date we mentioned earlier – September 28. The company has sent media invites for an event in Goa where the smartphone will launch.
The Honor 8 packs somewhat similar specs as that of Huawei P9, Leica-designed camera-centric smartphone. It comes in two variants with different RAM and storage capacity. The lower model has 3GB RAM and the higher variant packs 4GB RAM and up to 64GB storage. Huawei Honor 8 is expected to arrive in Pearl White, Sunrise Gold, Midnight Black, Sakura Pink, and Sapphire Blue color options.

The phone has an appealing design with the aluminum strip running along its sides. It features a 5.2-inch full HD display and octa-core Kirin 950 processor. The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box with company’s own skin EMUI 4.1 atop. The phone features a dual SIM slot, out of which one doubles as a MicroSD card slot.

Huawei Honor 8 India Price and Availability
Meanwhile, we don’t have a word on its price, but it is surely going to fall in the mid-range price bracket. We are expecting the smartphone to be priced around Rs. 20,000 for the lower variant. The company lately introduced a handful of smartphones that garnered critical acclaims for its camera performance. Huawei P9 tops the list. Other phones released by Huawei are Honor Note 8, Honor V8 Max, Honor 5C, and a few more.
