All the Tech Savvy out there, join in hands to welcome the Honor 8 Pro in India. The Indian counterpart of the eminent Honor 8, this newest edition of the smartphone, which is the brainchild of Huawei is basically an attempt to grab the buyer’s attention and divert it from the OnePlus 5, its most obvious competitor.
In the beginning:
Huawei’s last flagship of 2016, i.e. the Honor 8, with its excellent dual camera and premium build, was enough to pose a threat to the OnePlus flagship. But right now, the stiff competition is to occur between the OnePlus 5 and the latest offering by Huawei-The Honor 8 Pro. Priced at Rs.29,999, it promises to be a great purchase on the paper. But would it be really successful in keeping up to its expectations? For that, let’s take a quick glance at the salient features.
Features of the Honor 8 Pro:
To start with, this phone has opted for an all-metal construction. Also, with this, camera sensor and prominent antenna bands, mainly reminds the users of the iPhone 6 Plus. The OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), is deliberately eliminated, keeping in mind the two rear cameras to be flush with the rear panel, which now has a striking feature of a fingerprint scanner.
Now, a bit of talking about the technicalities. This smartphone runs Huawei’s very own Kirin 960 processor, at the maximum frequency of 2.48 GHz teaming up with the Mali G71 MP8 GPU. The storage front comes loaded with 6GB RAM and 128GB of Internal storage is expandable up to 256GB with the aid of a micro-SD card on the dual nano SIM slot. With these, the regular connectivity options like Bluetooth 4.2, Dual Band WiFI, NFC, GPS, and GLONASS are also there.
This extremely slender phone is just 6.9 mm, in spite of storing a 4000mAh battery inside. Also, it boasts of a 5.7” QuadHD (1440P) IPS display, providing the brilliant colors and sharp visuals at 551 PPI.
With all these above-mentioned specialties, the Honor 8 Pro indeed lives up to his name, earning the title of a phone which is ‘super fast’ and with the advantage of shifting between five to six apps at once. Now, the ultimate verdict will be definitely given by the buyers.
