New teaser hints at the upcoming Huawei Honor 8
The Honor V8 launched as the first smartphone from Huawei with a 5.7-inch QHD display. The upcoming Honor 8, however, is expected to be a smaller 5.2-inch FHD offering. It remains to be seen if the Honor 8 will inherit the dual rear camera lenses of the Honor V8 since it is unlikely to carry the dual Leica lenses of the even pricier Huawei P9.
The Huawei teaser reads "Beauty in everyday life" as the motto for the Honor 8. Like most Honor smartphones, the Honor 8 should be an upper mid-range offering with an attractive design. Rumored specifications include:
- HiSilicon Kirin 955 SoC
- 3 to 4 GB RAM
- 32 to 128 GB eMMC
- 3200 mAh battery
- USB Type-C and fingerprint sensor
According to Gizmo China, prices could range from 2000 Yuan (275 Euros) up to 2800 Yuan (380 Euros) depending on the SKU. A top SKU with a higher resolution display could also be a possibility. A reveal date is expected to come this July 5th.
