Huawei, a Chinese manufacturer competing with Samsung and Apple, is all set to launch their new smartphone of the Honor line-up, Huawei Honort 8 Pro on April 5. Not to mention that the phone is already available in Chinese market with the brand name of Huawei Honor V9.
A few weeks earlier rumors circulated that Huawei will be releasing its new smartphone Honor 8 Pro at the eve of the Mobile World Congress. With the MWC 2017 a thing of past now, it seems the wait is now over as the Chinese smartphone brand will be releasing the Honor 8 Pro on April 5 worldwide.
The Honor series has been impressive with the budget Honor 8 Lite attracting massive sales, the Honor 8 Pro promises to be an excellent release too. Let’s take a look at what the Huawei Honor 8 Pro has to offer:
It is reported that Honor 8 Pro will come with HiSilicon 960 that is said to be a direct competitor of Qualcomm and Samsung’s latest chips. The graphics card is also an improved Mali G-71 that will support with a huge 6GB of RAM.
As far as the display is concerned the Honor 8 Pro will not feature a display screen as impressive as the S8 but will have an impressive 5.7-inches Quad HD display which is better than many. Other features include LTE support, Android Nougat 7.0 and a dual-sim option.
Dual cameras are becoming the norm these days, so the Honor 8 Pro follows the trend by boasting a dual camera setup consisting of two 12-megapixel sensors that feature f/2.2, phase detection and laser autofocus, dual-LED flash, and 4K video recording. As for the selfie camera, it’s an 8-megapixel one with f/2.0 aperture.
While a lot of smartphones are now looking to cross the 3000mAh mark, the Galaxy S8 has stuck with 3000mAh which is smaller than its predecessor. The Huawei Honor 8 Pro will come with a mighty 4000mAh battery; sufficient enough of providing a backup of up to two days as the company claims.
The price has not been revealed yet but is expected to be around $394.
