Yet another dual camera contender & competitor of OnePlus 5, Honor 8 Pro is set to launch in India on July 6th. It was announced in India a couple of weeks ago to give tough competition to the most praised OnePlus 5. A product page on Amazon India showing the launch date was published by the seller.
If we judge on the basis of specifications then it’s worthy to note that phone is going to be directly complete with OnePlus5(OP5). Honor 8 Pro has eye-catching 5.7-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Two 12-megapixel sensors with f/2.2 aperture, One for RGB color & other for monochrome color capture, it also has laser autofocus, LED flash, and 4K video recording capabilities & 8-megapixel selfie camera. Honor Pro 8 is running on homemade HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC (4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz + 4 Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.4GHz) with 6GB of RAM, powered by 4000mAh battery. It has inbuilt 128GB storage which further can be expandable up to 128GB. Honor Pro 8 is running on Android 7 Nougat with company’s skinned EMUI 5.1. It also has NFC, dual SIM 4G, USB Type C and Bluetooth 4.2.
Though the price of Honor 8 Pro is not yet revealed it’s really interesting to see how Huawei price it stakes up against OnePlus 5 which is already gone out of stock two times. While it’s also worthy to note that it has additional storage capacity, a bigger display & good design is some advantage over OP5. According to us, it’s going to be around 33,000 INR, but it looks like the Huawei is not able to create enough anticipation & hype compares to OP5 that may be the one factor affect to Honor 8 Pro in a market, well other things we will come to know over time.
