The Honor V8 is priced as follows in China:

  • 1080p screen/4GB RAM/32GB/Kirin 950: 2299 Yuan ($352)

      The Honor brand was meant for international sales so I would be highly surprised if they don’t launch one.

    I like this phone a lot, i mean the full spec’ed one at 2K and 4gbRam. Form the price I would only wish for a bigger battery … Great value I will say again: gr8 value.

    This will make do for that OP3 to better be something really good or else. The same goes for all others…

    I will gladly pay a premium only for an ELIFE E9 if it ever comes through being. Hopefully a real update on the E8… Just out of reliability and quality build.

    What exactly is ‘plus better network support’?

    • Chandra Mohan
      May 11, 2016

      In China there are three different network operators, all of them use totally different networks,
      China Mobile- Network technology developed by China
      China Unicom- International standard
      China Telecom- CDMA

      Phones supporting all the above network is called better network support..
