Honor Note 8 2K-resolution phablet to appear before the U.S.-bound Honor 8 on Aug 1


Honor is gaining recognition for offering affordably priced handsets of reasonably good design and hardware quality in the U.S. and Europe. On August 16, the brand is going to launch its new Honor 8 handset in San Francisco. Sort of a follow up to the $199 Honor 5x, it's going to be a righteously powerful phone with a 5.2-inch screen, an octa-core 2.3GHz chip, and up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage, along with a fingerprint scanner and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Before this happens, though, Honor will launch the Honor 8 Note. The announcement event is scheduled for August 1 in Beijing, at the Huawei Exhibition Center. This phone, which may or may not appear outside China, is going to feature a 6.6-inch 2K-resolution screen and it's going to be a powered by an octa-core chipset clocked to 2.5GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM. It also features a fingerprint scanner, along with a 13MP main camera with a dual-LED flash, along with an 8MP front cam.

We'll see what's the deal with the Honor 8 Note and its smaller, but no less capable sibling pretty soon. Hopefully, Honor has interest in bringing the phablet along for a saunter through the West as well.
