During a special press event, the Chinese company Huawei announced today the Honor Note 8 mega-phablet, a device that offers a 6.6 inch diagonal – being some kind of response of the company to the Xiaomi Mi Max phone that was previously announced on the Chinese market with a 6.44 inch screen instead.
Getting to the specs, you must know that the 6.6 inch panel found here, offers a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and also the Super AMOLED technology for more vibrant colors. Inside the metallic body we’re getting an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 955 processor (4x Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz + 4x Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz, and 4 GB of RAM.
You’ll be able to choose from three storage options, 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB. If this isn’t enough, then you can also buy a microSD card slot and insert it in the phablet. Huawei Honor Note 8 comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-tone flash and OIS, with a 8-megapixel front-facing sensor and with a 4500 mAh battery that offers Quick Charge.
On the connectivity side, there’s Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer. From the design point of view, this product resembles pretty much to the previous Huawei devices launched during 2016, with a glass piece on the back where the camera is found and with a metallic body with 2.5D glass placed above the front-facing panel.
Huawei Honor Note 8 measures only 7.18 mm in thickness and weighs 217 grams. Here’s how much the phablet costs:
