May 10 is an important day for Chinese smartphone lovers not only because we will meet the Xiaomi Max phablet that day, but also because Huawei will also unveil the new Honor V8 series smartphones the same day. The company has already sent out invites for the event next week and we can be sure that the major highlight of the phone is going to be its camera at the back.
Thanks to the numerous teasers posted for the Honor V8, we already know that the phone will be yet another device from Huawei with a dual camera setup. While the Honor series isn’t new to dual cameras since the Honor 6 Plus came with such a setup, this should be the next generation technology from the company. The company seems to have tremendous confidence in the camera setup of the upcoming phone, which is probably why it decided to send out camera samples in the invites for the event. So, there is no doubt that the company will focus on the phone’s camera during the event.
As for the specs, the Honor V8 is expected to come in two variants, a standard model, and a high-end version. The difference between the standard and the high-end model is going to be in terms of the display resolution and the processor. The standard one will come with a 5.7-inch 1080p display and Kirin 950 chip while the high-end version is expected to feature a 5.7-inch 2K display with Kirin 955 chip. Other similar specs include 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 12MP dual rear cameras, 8MP front camera and a 3400mAh battery inside a 7.75mm body.
We are still not sure about the pricing of the handset, but given the dual camera setup on board and the premium specs, expect it to be upwards of $400.
