After announcing the Huawei P9, Huawei subsidiary Honor is back with a high-end device called the V8. Of course, having already picked up TENAA certification earlier on, here are some of the hardware specifications of the device that might just tempt you to make the switch when the device becomes available in your market.

Huawei Honor V8

Huawei Honor V8 runs Android 6.0 with EMUI 4.1, features a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage (there is also a 32GB version which comes with a 1080p display). Here are a few other interesting specs:

As for the processor, the device is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC, which comes with an integrated 64-bit octa-core CPU with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores and four ARM Cortex A-72 cores. The chip can also be found in the Huawei Mate 8, and is the predecessor of the HiSilicon Kirin 955 that powers the company's latest flagship smartphones, the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus that were launched last month in London, UK. Meanwhile, the top-end model with the QHD panel also sports an NFC chip, but all versions of the device come with support for dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS navigation, which is par for the course for just about all modern-day smartphones irrespective of their positioning in the market.

Dual cameras are the future for cameras in smartphones, and Honor is mirroring the camera setup on the Huawei P9, which is good for anyone looking for the latest tech in a cheaper device. The Huawei Honor V8 is available in platinum gold, rose gold, champagne gold, and glacier silver. If you live in China (or know someone who will ship it to you) you can purchase Honor V8 today, starting at $352 for the 32GB version or $429 for the 64GB variation on Gizok.com.
