The Huawei Honor 8 is Huawei's newest offering announced yesterday from China. It seems to compete with Huawei's own recent flagship, the Huawei P9, on every dimension except two: build quality (glass back vs. unibody construction) and price (this one is about 30% cheaper). We covered the P9 back in April, and the Honor 8 really is almost identical as you can see from the specs:

 Honor 8P9
Processor Kirin 950 (4 x Cortex A72 2.3GHz + 4 x Cortex A53 1.8GHz + always-on I5 coprocessor) Kirin 955 (4 x Cortex A72 2.5GHz + 4 x Cortex A53 1.8GHz + always-on I5 coprocessor)

Build "2.5D" glass front and back, metal frame All metal unibody construction
Colors White, Gold, Black, Pink, Blue White, Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Gray

As far as I can tell, except for being ever so slightly slower, bulkier, and cheaper with the glass back, these two phones are almost identical. The same B&W/RGB dual camera setup, the same multipurpose fingerprint reader / button, the same RAM/ROM options, the same GPU, etc.

The biggest difference is definitely the price, with the Honor 8 starting at ¥1,999 ($299), significantly less than the P9 which is available for around $450 on GizOK.
