We’ve heard the possible release of this device before. It was reported as the Huawei Honor V8 Max. Today, however, an official teaser from Huawei confirmed that this is in fact the Huawei Honor Note 8, and it is scheduled for an August 1st launch.
Huawei made last year’s Nexus 6p phablet and was enjoying quite a success throughout the year with its devices. Some of Huawei’s top smartphones are due for an update, including the Huawei Mate 8 and Mate S.
We’ve also seen the Honor 8, a premium device with dual-camera, a fingerprint sensor, a 5.2-inch display and a stunningly capable Kirin 950 processor from the company themselves. The Huawei Honor V8 was launched even before that, featuring a bigger screen and the same Kirin 950 processor.
Let’s not forget the recent show-stealing P9 and P9 Plus. Despite the controversies – including the recent fallout about the use of a Canon 5D Mark III result to indirectly advertise the P9’s Leica-branded camera – the P9 and P9 Plus are both great devices and are among the best phones you can pick up today.
More About the Huawei Honor Note 8
There is a trend of launching a big phablet right now. Xiaomi did it with the XiaomiMi Max, and now Huawei is announcing the release of Huawei Honor Note 8 really soon. The device will feature a 6.6-inch screen with Quad HD resolution. The teaser released by the company also shows a big 2K writing on the middle of it.
Other than the screen, we know that the Honor Note 8 will have a starting price of just around $300. The entry level will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. If you’re willing to spend an extra $45 to $50, you can bump that specs to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The phablet will still use Huawei’s very own Kirin 950 processor. A recent leak suggests that it will come with a 4,400mAh battery in a very thin 7.2mm body. The overall design of the Honor Note 8 looks really good too, with screen bezel kept at minimum. When powered off, the device looks as if it has no bezel at all.
To round the specs up, there is a 13-megapixel shooter on the back and a 8-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video calls. At its price, Huawei Honor Note 8 is certainly an interesting device to consider.
