Huawei is slowly making its name in the U.S. and other parts of the world other than its main homeland of China.
In fact, things started going the right way for the company when it was selected by Google for the 2015 Nexus 6P – a phone that has seen a huge success.
Now, to keep things going, the Chinese OEM unveiled a Huawei Honor 8 recently, a phone that makes a perfect alternative for the pricey Galaxy S7 by adding a number of nifty features, including a dual-lens camera. The launch of this phone has been followed swiftly by another flagship, this time a phablet-sized Huawei Honor Note 8 – a 6.6-inch smartphone that packs some of the best hardware specs as well as design.
The screen of the Huawei Honor Note 8 has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels while under the hood, the phablet comes with a 64-bit Kirin 955 octa-core SoC that is paired with a RAM of 4GB. These are flagship specs for any 2016 Huawei-made device, especially since the company usually sticks to its in-house processors as opposed to using the likes of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. The back of the phone has a 13MP snapper while the front features an 8MP selfie camera.
As for the storage, you get 32GB and 128GB of onboard storage, but there is still room to expand it via a 128GB microSD card. The Honor Note 8 also gets a decent battery unit of 4500mAh, alongside other features like 4G LTE connectivity, dual-SIM support, a fingerprint scanner on the back as well as Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
In terms of colors, the Huawei Honor Note 8 comes in two color variants of gold and silver. If you want to get your hands on this phablet, it is available for pre-orders at GearBest. However, the two color variants are priced differently thanks to the differences in storage sizes as well. Where the silver variant of the Honor Note 8 is priced at $488.36, the gold variant starts at $582.62. However, the former has 32GB of storage while the latter has 128GB of onboard storage.
Apparently, these preorders will start shipping as from the first week of October.
