Huawei has just launched the Honor 8 successor – Huawei Honor 8 Pro in the European market. If you remember the Honor 8 attracted massive sales on the Black Friday last year while the Honor 8 Lite was warmly welcomed by the budget consumers.
Honor has opted for rounded corners and a matte aluminum finish on the Honor 8 Pro instead of a glass back; feels and looks like the iPhone 7 Plus as a result. It feels more comfortable to single-handed hold than the regular Honor 8, even with the larger display.
The Honor 8 Pro comes with a 2K Quad HD 5.7 inch large screen with lesser bezels and a 79% screen ratio still a bit far off from the new Samsung Galaxy S8. It houses the latest Kirin 960 octa-core processor improving single core and multicore performance by 10% and 80% respectively.
The Mali G71 chipset along with a massive 6GB RAM ensures smooth graphic experience improved by 400%! The set has a sleek design with a metal build made possible by leading diamond cutting technology, while the screen is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The Huawei Honor 8 Pro is packed with Google’s latest Android Nougat release, and it’s optimizing the Android kernel with its EMUI 5.1 system to open apps quicker. AI algorithms will learn and understand what apps you open regularly and then optimize memory efficiently. Honor says it has 29 patent applications related to this technology.
Honor 8 Pro has a massive 4000 mAh battery which is bigger than the new Samsung Galaxy flagships. According to Huawei, the phone can be fully charged in 1 hour and 50 minutes and provide a 2-day usage with one charge.
Only the camera remains the same as the Honor 8, with a 12-megapixel dual-camera system. One captures images in RGB color, and the other in monochrome. Honor’s software then processes both images to create a single photo with better detail.
One of the more interesting parts of the Honor 8 Pro is its packaging. Honor has created a box for the 8 Pro that converts into a Google Cardboard viewer for VR. It’s a neat way to reuse something you’d typically store away or throw in the trash, and it’s a nice introduction to VR basics for all 8 Pro owners.
Other specs include a microSD slot, dual-SIM support, a fingerprint sensor at the rear, NFC, and USB-C charging. Essentially, the Honor 8 Pro is a slightly better (in terms of specifications) than the Huawei P10 with a lower price tag (PKR 59,999).
Honor only has plans to sell the Honor 8 Pro across Europe right now, with pre-orders beginning today for £474.99 (PKR 62,000). Amazon will start shipping the Honor 8 Pro on April 20 and it will be available in platinum gold, midnight black, and navy blue.
