Huawei has unveiled the Honor Note 8 in China. The Honor Note 8 is a phablet device with a 6.6-inch screen, a Kirin 955 SoC and 4GB of RAM. Huawei Honor Note 8 features a 6.6-inch screen and a resolution of 2K (2560×1440). The device is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 955 SoC that packs in four Cortex-A72 and four Cortex-A53 cores as well as a Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. GSMArena reports that the device will come with 4GB RAM and that a cheaper, 3GB variant is also rumoured to be around. The SoC is coupled with 32/64/128GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera.
There is support for a microSD card, but you’ll need to sacrifice one of the two nano-SIM slots for that. While the phone is a dual-SIM device, only one SIM supports 3G/4G; the other is relegated to 2G only. The device will run Android 6.0. Other than that, you get the usual assortment of Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, Bluetooth v4.2, USB Type-C, NFC, etc. connectivity options. All of this, and a 4,500mAh battery is packed into a device that weighs only 219g.
