Renders of the Honor 8A show waterdrop notch and single rear camera
Droid Shout has managed to get hold of some renders of the upcoming Honor 8A device. The budget-level smartphone is expected to be released in China on January 8. The renders show that the designers have gone for a waterdrop design feature rather than a notch, and that there will be a single 13 MP camera on the rear.
The Honor 8A is likely to come with a 6.08-inch screen and may feature a 2.2 GHz octa-core Kirin 710 SoC. Other specifications touted for the device include 3 GB RAM, storage options of 32 GB or 64 GB, anywhere from 2,920 to 3,020 mAh battery (depending on the source), and an 8 MP selfie camera. As the renders show, the smartphone will be available in black and blue.
The new addition to Honor’s line-up should make it to the Indian market after its initial release in China. Those hoping for the latest version of Google’s OS may be pleased to know that the Honor 8A should operate on Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 user interface based on Android 9 Pie straight out-of-the-box.
