Honor 8 to launch in India on October 12th


The subbrand of Huawei, Honor is all set to launch their latest mid-range device in India. The event is set for October 12th and as per some hints, the price of the device can be around Rs 28000. Honor 8 has already launched in the USA and it has received pretty good feedbacks.

Built on the footing of the excellent Huawei P9, Honor 8 sports the same dual-camera setup with two 12 MP cameras. One of the camera is monochrome while the other one is color. In addition, the device has a dual toned glass back and metal finish which looks very premium. Under the hood, the device has octa-core Kirin 950 SoC coupled with the Mali T880-MP4 GPU. The device has got 4 GB of RAM and will have 32 or 64 GB storage options. Moreover, there’s the same 5.2-inch 1080p display of Huawei P9.
