The Honor Waterplay 8 is a smaller version of the 2017 Waterplay tablet with a 10.1-inch screen. Just like the name says, the tablet has an 8-inch screen. When it launched back in October, it was available as a Wi-Fi only tablet. Today, Honor has announced an LTE version just in time for the holidays.

The LTE version comes in only one configuration – 4GB RAM + 64GB unlike the Wi-Fi only version that is available in 4GB RAM + 64GB RAM and 4GB RAM + 128GB variants. The price for the LTE version is ¥1699 (~$246), same price as the 128GB version of the tablet. The rest of the specs are the same.

The Honor Waterplay 8 has an 8-inch LCD IPS display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution. It is powered by a Kirin 659 processor and also has GPU Turbo technology. Irrespective of the variant you choose, you will be able to expand the storage via a MicroSD card slot (256GB max.).
