Description

The Honor 8 includes a 5.2-inch 1080p screen and a fingerprint sensor. Under the hood you'll find some home cooking as the Kirin 950 chipset drives the device with an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. Three variants of the phone are being offered. One comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, while the other two feature 4GB of RAM with 32GB/64GB of internal memory. Perhaps the most striking part of the phone is found on back, where a dual 12MP camera set up is found. Both cameras sport laser auto focus and an aperture of f/2.2. Selfie shooters can use the 8MP front-facing camera, which also handles video chats. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and offers fast charging capabilities
