Huaewei Honor 8 Pro Specs and features

According to rumors, Honor is planning to announce a new Honor phone at MWC 2017. Instead of dubbing that phone as Honor V9, it will be called Honor 8 Pro. Unlike its brother, Honor 8 and the Honor 8 Lite, which are mid-range smartphones, the Honor 8 Pro is a high-end device. The device has only been spotted recently on TENAA, and will replace the Honor V8 announced last year. Design-wise, the phone has a full-metal body with a body thickness around 7mm.

In terms of Huawei V9 Glory specs, it will likely feature a 5.7 inch 2K display screen, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The phone will be powered by Huawei’s top proccessor, the Kirn 960 octa-core. It also comes with 4/6GB RAM + 64GB ROM, expandable up to 128GB. In terms of optics, it is going to have the same dual 12 MP rear camera found on the regular Honor 8, plus an 8 MP front-facing camera. Moreover, there’s a fingerprint scanner on the back.

The Honor 8 Pro should look like his Chinese sibling, Honor V9, but without the China Mobile’s logo on the back. The upcoming high-end phone will be released in March or April. Unfortunately, we don’t have any information about the price. So far, there are no clues about the price and availibity.
