Huawei’s Honor sub-brand has mostly been about budget flagship phones. This time around, though, Honor seem to be up to something different.
The Honor V8 is a phone that’s received a lot of attention from the rumour mills already. What we have on our hands this time though is something much bigger (figuratively and literally) — pictures of the phone.
The Honor V8 was spotted on China’s TENAA. The phone will come in at least three variants, namely KNT-AL10, KNT-TL10, and KNT-AL20 with the last one being the highest specced.
The KNT-AL10 and KNT-TL10 models come with 32GB storage and a 2.3GHz octa-core processor, whereas the KNT-AL20 variant of the Honor V8 has 64GB on-board storage and a 2.5GHz octa-core processor. This, while all versions have a hefty 4GB of RAM… and a 5.7-inch screen with a 2K display (a first for Honor).
A couple of things that these leaks confirm: dual rear camera setup (as speculated earlier) and laser focus. Quite clearly, Huawei is keen to bring the camera tech it bought from Leica to its budget Honor line… although the specifications of this device don’t make it look like a budget phone in any way.
We’ll know about that and more on the day of the phone launch, i.e. 10th May at 10:08am.
