Honor launches Honor 8 Pro in India priced at Rs. 29999

Back to MWC 2.17, Huawei's subbrand Honor had introduced it as Honor V9 and in China, it is sold as Honor 8 Pro. The smartphone runs on EMUI 5.1 built on top of Android 7.0 Nougat.

Design The Honor 8 Pro sports a minimalist design with a matte aluminium finish and rounded corners, unlike the glass back the Honor 8 came with.

Honor 8 Pro comes with a 5.7-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) LTPS LCD display. But unlike the OnePlus 5, the Honor 8 Pro has a twin 12-megapixel sensors, one for shooting in RGB and another for monochrome. The company claims the battery lasts for 1.44 days with heavy usage and around 2 days with regular usage, which could place it at a higher pedestal than some other flagships provided the numbers as well as the experience stand out to be true. With a similar combination of 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, HTC U11's is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor. The rear camera also comes with phase detection and laser autofocus and a dual-LED flash. Talking about the storage of the phone, the phone comes with a 128GB of internal storage which can be further expandable upto 128GB via micro SDcard in a hybrid dual-SIM slot.

Hardware The Honor 8 Pro is powered by Huawei's proprietary hardware- the Kirin 960 chipsets which is an octa-core processor which apparently boosts performance by 18 per cent over its predecessor. Interestingly, only Indian market gets this 128GB in-built storage variant as the rest of the world gets only 64GB. The smartphone comes with an 8-megapixel front sensor coupled with an 77-degree wide-angle lens. It supports modern technologies like USB Type C for charging and connecting with PCs, while retaining a 3.5mm headphone jack. The company says that the smartphone will be available on July 10 at 6PM during Amazon Prime Day sale for Prime members and it will go for open sales from July 13 midnight. It supports 50-meter water resistance capability and comes in three colour options: Dynamic Orange, Classic Navy Blue, and Carbon Black.

Honor today also showcased a new Honor Band 3 with intelligent tracking features like heart rate monitoring, walking/running and sleep tracking.
