Huawei Honor 8 spotted at TENAA for certification
TENAA documents reveal a 5.2-inch FHD display, 3 to 4 GB RAM, Kirin 950 SoC, and dual rear cameras. The Honor 8 is expected to be officially revealed this coming July 5th.

Huawei only recently teased its upcoming Honor 8 with the a headline roughly translated to "Beauty in everyday life". Now, the mid-range smartphone has finally showed up at TENAA for wireless certification before general sales can begin in China.

The database shows the front and back of the device where its dual LED Flash and dual rear cameras can be spotted. Thus, it appears that the Honor 8 will inherit some hardware features from the existing Honor V8 instead of the Huawei P9 and its more powerful Leica-branded cameras.

The technical specifications are also now clearer according to the TENAA datasheet. The smartphone is expected to carry the following specifications:

  • 5.2-inch FHD display
  • HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC
  • 3 or 4 GB RAM
  • 32, 64, 128 GB eMMC options
  • 12 MP rear + 8 MP front cameras
  • DUAl SIM, NFC, USB Type-C
  • Rear fingerprint sensor
  • 2900 mAh battery

In comparison, the Honor V8 carries the slightly faster Kirin 955 SoC with a QHD display. Of course, the Honor 8 may also have a QHD option that is not mentioned in the TENAA report, but this could be unlikely. It also remains to be seen if the device will support the appropriate LTE bands for European users.

The Honor 8 announcement is expected to come this July 5th with multiple SKUs and a starting price of 2000 Yuan or about 280 Euros converted.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
