Along with the Samsung Galaxy A9, Razer Phone 2 and the Nokia 3.1 Plus, another smartphone hit the market today – until now, at least, we’re talking about the Honor 8C, the latest entry-level coming from the Chinese phone maker.
The Honor 8C is equipped with a large 6.26-inch HD+ display with an 19:9 aspect ratio display (and a notch) and is powered by the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC, which is seen on a device for the first time. The power efficient CPU is then paired with 4GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of internal store (expandable).
In the camera department we find a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a secondary 2MP shooter to create photos with bokeh effect, plus it helps with AI scene recognition. In the front we instead find an 8MP selfie snapper with AI beautify features.
