Huawei is having a great year, a really great year. After announcing 2 months ago that they have shipped over 60 million phones in the first half of the year, the company has announced the number of Honor 8 units they have sold since the phone launched in July.
At a press event held on Friday, Honor’s Vice President, Zhao Ming, announced that the company has sold 1.5 million Honor 8 units till date. Not stopping at that, he also added that ever since the sub-brand was formed almost 3 years ago, they have sold a total of 100 million phones. Part of this numbers can also be attributed to the massive success of the Honor 5x in North America.
The Honor 8 has gotten lots of positive reviews in the US and Europe most especially for its great build quality and price tag. The phone sports a 5.2” FHD display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage, dual 12 MP rear cameras with laser focus, a front facing 8 MP camera, fingerprint scanner, and an IR blaster.
It uses Huawei’s own Kirin 950 processor which is a combination of 4 Cortex A-72 chip clocked at 2.3GHz and 4 Cortex A-53 chips clocked at 1.8GHz. There’s a 3.5 mm audio jack, hybrid dual SIM slots, VoLTE, USB Type-C, and a 3000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. And the best part is you get all these for just $400.
