According to GizOK, the recently unveiled smartphone sports a 5.2-inch Full HD 2.5 curved glass design, a sleek way to own a smartphone with a very reasonable price of $349.

Honor 8 is available on the market in two variants which depend on the storage capacity. The first variant has 4 GB of RAM and the other has 3 GB of RAM. The latter model is available in two color options: white or gold. The 4 GB model, on the other hand, is available in white, blue and gold.

Both models will come with dual cameras installed at the rear. Its 12 MP feature does not only take high-definition photos, but it is also able to capture 1080p videos and 720p videos in slow motion.

Other specs include a Kirin 950 chipset and built-in memory storage of 32 GB or 64 GB, depending on the chosen variant. The handset runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 with EMUI 4.1 and is capable of providing users with longer life with its 3150 mAh battery.

"The energy efficient display features CABC and DRAM (Display RAM) technology that adjust the level of backlight and differentiate between dynamic and static content on your screen," the description on the handset's efficiency reads.

While the P9 has an all-metal unibody construction, the Honor 8 has metal frame edges and glass panels on its front and rear. This makes the recent model look bulkier compared to the P9.
