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