B&H Announces Huawei Honor 8


Featuring an octa-core processor, dual rear cameras, and 4G LTE connectivity, Huawei’s Honor 8 smartphone has the power and performance you need. Its Kirin 950 chipset combines a pair of quad-core processors running at 1.8 and 2.3 GHz with an always-on i5 coprocessor, 4GB of RAM, and a Mali T880 GPU for mobile gaming, video playback, and more. 32GB of on-board storage can be expanded up to 128GB with the use of a microSD card. Its 5.2” display features Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution; on its back a 3D fingerprint reader lets you unlock your device in less than half of a second.

Also found on the back of the Honor 8 is a pair of f/2.2 12MP cameras with dual flash. Using a principle similar to the rods and cones in the human eye, one camera records in monochrome and the other in RGB color. Combined, they produce increased sharpness and detail in your photos. A front-facing 8MP shooter has its own flash for low-light self-portraits. The Honor 8 features Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, GPS, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, and a 3000mAh battery that can recharge to 50% in as little as 30 minutes. It is available in Midnight Black and Pearl White.
