1.5 million Honor 8 handsets have been sold since its July launch


Huawei's Honor sub-brand is doing quite well, thank you. Back in July, the Honor 8 was unveiled and picked up five million registrations in less than four days. The handset has a 12MP dual camera setup in back, and the powerful Kirin 950 chipset inside along with 3GB/4GB of RAM. The phone has sold 1.5 million units since it was launched back in July.

This information was announced by Honor’s Vice President Zhao Ming during a press event on Friday. The executive added that in the 999 days since the sub-brand was introduced, 100 million Honor handsets have been sold. And with the Honor 8 now available in the U.S. and U.K., we should see the sales total for the device and for the brand continue to climb.

The remaining specs for the Honor 8 include a 5.2-inch screen, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The phone features an aluminum build and includes a fingerprint scanner on back. Buyers can select from a model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, or a variant containing 4GB of RAM with 64GB of native storage. The selfie shooter in front weighs in at 8MP, and a 3000mAh battery is on board. The cell uses a rapid charging system to go from 0% to 47% charged in just 30 minutes. Android 6.0 is pre-installed with the EMUI 4.1 UI running on top.

The Honor 8 is available in the U.S. from the Honor website for $399.99. If interested, click on the sourcelink.
