The handset packs with 5.7 inches Quad HD display and powered by Kirin 960 octa-core processor coupled with 6GB of RAM. It comes dual rear camera setup and a massive 4000mAh battery on board.
Huawei Honor 8 Pro Specifications:
- 5.7 inches Quad HD 2.5D curved glass display.
- Kirin 960 2.4 GHz octa-core processor coupled with 6GB RAM and Mali G71 GPU.
- 64GB internal memory and expandable up to 128 GB via microSD card.
- Dual 12 MP rear camera with dual tone LED flash and 8MP front shooter
- 4000mAh battery with fast charging.
The device features a fingerprint and infrared sensor, runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with Emotion UI 5.1. It has 4G LTE enabled, WiFi 802.11ac (2.4GHz/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS, NFC and USB Type-C on board.
In our initial impression of the device, we found the handset to be extremely good looking with a sleek design. Nevertheless, with Kirin 960 on board with 6GB RAM, the handset should perform fairly well. The transition across the apps is relatively smooth, and heating is under control. The QHD display produces vibrant color with crisp viewing angle and excellent sunlight legibility.
The camera department features a 12-megapixel Monochrome and 12MP RGB lens (borrowed from Leica) with F/2.2 aperture, produce some nice shots in daylight with crisp detail. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calls. All in all, with the launch of OnePlus 5, the competition is heated up in the High-end market segment, So the pricing should be very crucial here. Honor 8 seems to be a promising contender with its top notch design and hardware.
