Huawei has been teasing the upcoming Honor 8 smartphone as one of the best-looking phone in its class. In fact, in the recent teaser for the device, Huawei calls the Honor 8 “Beauty out of the ordinary”. Up till now, we didn’t have any real renders of the device, but now, the phone has passed through the TENAA certification website, which reveals most of the specs as well as the design of the handset.

First of all, as predicted, the Honor 8 will use a double glass design with a metal frame. To be honest, in the images, the phone doesn’t look anything out of the ordinary, but we will have to reserve our judgment till we see the device in real life. It’s going to be compact and thin, and the basic design seems to be a continuation of its previous generation models. You can also see a round fingerprint sensor at the back along with the dual camera setup.

As for the specs, the Huawei Honor 8 will come with a 5.2-inch 1080p display. Under the hood, the phone features a 2.3GHz processor, which should be the octa-core Kirin 950 chip. There will be multiple variants of the phone, as spotted a few hours back (FRD-TL100, FRD-DL00, FRD-AL100, FRD-AL10) and these variants will differ in network connectivity support (a couple of these support all networks in China) as well as storage. There will be 3GB RAM + 32GB, 4GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB storage variants. The phone will come with Android 6 pre-installed and dual card dual standby support with an infrared port as well.

As for the camera, it should be the same as the Honor V8. So the upcoming Honor 8 will feature 12MP dual cameras at the back and a single 8MP sensor up front. The dimensions are: 145.5 × 71.0 × 7.45 mm and the weight: 153 grams. 

The Honor 8 should be positioned right below the Honor V8 flagship series. So, the pricing of the base model (3GB + 32GB) is expected to start at 1999 Yuan ($306).

The phone should be unveiled sometime early July.
