As for slots, the Honor Note 8 features a hybrid dual-SIM slot which can house a microSD card together with a nanoSIM one or a couple of nanoSIM cards which can be very useful if you want to use more cards at the same time.
The phablet also comes with dual band WiFi and Bluetooth and it has a USB Type C port on the bottom that acts as a USB 2.0 one. Fortunately for the future owners, it will come with Android Marshmallow right out of the box. The battery is a huge 4.500 mAh one to fit the giant device that measures 178.8 x 90.9 x 7.18 and weighs 219 grams.
