Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has recently confirmed that the company will be launching the Honor 8A on January 8. The handset will be a successor to last years budget smartphone Honor 7A. The specifications of the device have already been surfaced through TENAA listings. The official renders of the smartphone have also come out a few days ahead of its launch.
The renders show that the smartphone will have a teardrop notch with Honor’s branding on its chin. The smartphone will have a single camera at the back coupled with an LED flash. The rear side of the phone has a glossy finish suggesting its made of shiny plastic. However, there is a lack of fingerprint scanner on the back which suggests the users will have to depend on password authentication. The phone will be available in two colors, black and blue. The Honor 7A compared to the 8A had a dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner, which suggests the 8A is more of a downgrade than a successor.
The Honor 8A launch poster released by the company reveals that the phone has a waterdrop notch, a single camera at the back and front, 64 GB of internal storage, dual speaker and an octa-core processor. Through TENAA listings it has been revealed that the phone will sport a 6.088-inch display with HD+ resolution.
The phone is fueled by 2.3 GHz octa-core processor from MediaTek coupled with 3 GB of RAM. In terms of optics, the Honor 8A will have a 13-megapixel primary sensor paired with an LED flash and an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The phone will be backed up by 3020 mAh battery.
There are no details however on the pricing of the phone. Honor 8A might come in 32 GB and 64 GB storage variant.
