Huawei plans to release its Honor Note 8 smartphone in China this month, giving phablet buyers a cheaper alternative thanks to the Chinese phone maker. The 6.6-inch Honor Note 8 is bigger than those two competitors by some 0.2″ in diagonal, and Huawei has picked 1,440 x 2,560 pixel as the proper resolution at this size. That results in a 443ppi pixel density though their own calculations – plenty sharp, then.
The Huawei Honor Note 8 is powered by octa-core Kirin 955 processor and it comes out with 4 gigabyte of RAM. The phone packs 32 gigabyte of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128 gigabytes via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Huawei Honor Note 8 packs a 13MP primary camera on the rear and a 8MP front shooter for selfies.
The Huawei Honor Note 8 runs Android 6.0 and is powered by a 4500mAh non removable battery. It just measures 178.80 x 90.90 x 7.18 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 219.00 grams.
The new Huawei Honor Note 8 is a dual SIM smartphone that accepts two Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, 4G and Bluetooth. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer.
The Honor Note 8 is available in Silver, Gray and Gold, and the 32 gigabyte variant is tagged with 2,299 CNY (about $346), the 64 gigabyte with 2,499 CNY (about $376) and the 128 gigabytes with 2,799 CNY (about $420). It’s scheduled to hit the shelves on August 9 in China, and the 8 series is expected to land on U.S. shores in the foreseeable future. Just to be clear, this humungous phone is part of that lineup.
