Huawei also presents the high-end Honor Note 8 smartphone

Along with the budget Honor 5 smartphone Huawei has announced one new high-end communicator known as Honor Note 8, whose main mission will be to compete with the Xiaomi Mi Max and the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro handsets.

The main feature of the new Honor Note 8 smartphone is its large 6.6-inch display that puts the device right into the phablet category. The display of the Honor Note 8 works at 2560 x 1440 pixels (Quad HD) and offers 443 pixels per inch as well as AMOLED technology. The handset hides a Kirin 955 processor that features four Cortex-A72 cores, four Cortex-A53 cores and Mali-T880 MP4 graphics. The smartphone also features 4 GB of RAM as well as 32 GB/64 GB/128 GB of internal memory, depending on the chosen version. At the back the device sports a 13 MP camera with optical stabilization, a dual LED flash and support for Full HD video recording (1080p). Just right beneath it users will find a fingerprint reader and up front they will enjoy the services of an 8 MP camera. The Huawei Honor Note 8 also offers support for two SIM cards, a USB Type-C port, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a GPS receiver, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 4500 mAh battery. NFC, however, is not supported. All this hardware is fitted inside a metallic chassis that measures 178.8 x 90.9 x 7.18 mm and that weighs 219 grams.

The Honor Note 8 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and its sales will commence on August 9. The handset will sell for CNY 2299 (USD 345) for the 32 GB version, CNY 2499 (USD 375) for the 64 GB version and CNY 2799 (USD 420) for the 128 GB model. It is unclear, however, if the Honor Note 8 will reach other countries as well.
