The #Huawei Honor Note 8 is now official, but only in China. However, given the nature of the handset, we don’t see why it cannot see a home in international markets. The smartphone bears a gargantuan 6.6-inch Super AMOLED display, sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which in other words is referred to as Quad HD.
This should make the device pixel dense and offer the best viewing angles, something that AMOLED panels are known for. With a thickness of just 7.18mm and an all-metal design, the Honor Note 8 is clearly not all about the internal hardware. The device has a screen-to-body ratio of 80%, which, again is quite impressive.
The fingerprint scanner is located on the back, which helps the company cut down on the bottom and top bezels on the front panel. Rounding off the rest of the hardware specs sheet is a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, the octa-core Kirin 955 SoC, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a massive 4,500 mAh battery.
The handset is priced at 2,299 CNY ($346), which is pretty amazing given the kind of hardware it’s packing. Although it’s arrival in the States is not set in stone at the moment, we are hoping it will eventually arrive in the region.
