US-bound Honor 8 will bring you "a world of trending music" thanks to Deezer

Already available to buy in China, the Honor 8 is coming later this month to the US: it will be officially presented on August 16 at an event in San Francisco. Before announcing details related to price and release date, Honor this week unveiled that it's partnering with popular music streaming service Deezer in order to bring "a world of trending music" to Honor 8 users. 

Right now, it's not exactly clear what this partnership means, but it certainly seems that Honor 8 owners will get some free music. It's worth noting that Deezer has around 40 million songs in its catalog - about 10 million  more than Apple Music or Spotify. Deezer's premium service is currently available for $10 per month in the US.

Unlike the Honor 5x that was released last year, the Honor 8 is more compact, sporting a 5.2-inch 1080p display instead of the 5.5-inch 1080p screen of the older handset. The new smartphone is made out of metal, and looks a bit better than the Honor 5x (of course, some of you may disagree).

Powered by Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor, the Honor 8 features up to 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery. On the front, the handset has an 8 MP camera, while the back hosts a fingerprint sensor, as well as a dual 12 MP camera with laser auto focus. The device will run Android Marshmallow (with EMUI 4.1) out of the box.

The Honor 8 will be sold unlocked in the US, and we're thinking it not going to cost more than $400 - $500 (regardless of version). Interested?
