honor 8 teased ahead of probable July 5th announcement

For a little while now, reports have suggested that the honor 8 is being primed for announcement. Touted as a more compact version of the honor V8, we've a solid idea of its features and prospective price point, as well a possible release date. Now, we've got what looks to be a seal of legitimacy thanks to an official-looking promo graphic. While there's no glimpse of the phone itself just yet, it seems certain that the device will arrive on the rumored July 5th date if not earlier. 

honor, as many of you will know, is a subsidiary of Chinese brand Huawei, and has churned out a slew of decent handsets over the past couple of years. The honor V8, which finally became official last month, is quite the powerhouse with its QHD 5.7-inch display and Kirin 950 SoC with 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The honor 8 is a less phablety addition to the series with a rumored 5.2-inch display, though still looks set to pack a punch.

The honor 8 is expected to be powered either by the Kirin 950 or the Kirin 955 chipset with 4 GB of RAM, and like its more sizable counterpart, will be blessed with a USB Type-C port. Prices and variations of the honor 8 will range from around $300 for an NFC-free 1080p model, right up to a premium, 128 GB edition packing a QHD panel for $425. In total, there could be up to five different honor 8 models in store.

Following its announcement on July 5th, the device will likely hit stores one week later on July 12th. With any luck, we'll get a couple more teasers before next Tuesday's big reveal.
