Huawei was expected to release the Honor 8 today and sure enough, the company made the Honor 8 official in China for the price of $300. Pre-orders have already started in China with the smartphone expected to go on sale from July 19.

After specs on the Honor 8 have been leaking for weeks now, Huawei finally released the smartphone in China, according to FoneArena. The device is the company’s latest high-end smartphone in the Honor series and it comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD 2.5D curved glass display and other powerful specs.

Honor 8 runs a 2.3GHz octa-core Kirin 950 SoC and comes with Android Marshmallow 6.0 with EMUI 4.1 on top. It’s available in two variants, one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and the other with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.

Storage can be expanded to 128GB using a micro-SD card. The smartphone’s selling point is definitely the 12MP rear cameras with laser autofocus and 1.76-micron pixels size. Rear cameras have f/2.2 aperture and should perform well in low-light conditions.

It’s no surprise that the Honor 8 came with such rear cameras, considering that rumors on the dual-camera setup leaked in May and the Honor V8 had the same setup on the back. A comparison to the Honor V8 is quite appropriate, considering that the Honor 8 is a scaled-down version of the smartphone released back in May this year.

Honor 8 is available in multiple color variants

Honor 8 comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back and the smartphone draws power from a 3000mAh battery, with support for fast charging. In addition, it comes with an 8MP camera in the front and it comes with hybrid dual SIM. The smartphone is 7.45mm thick and weights 153 grams. It also comes with USB Type-C and 4G LTE connectivity.

The smartphone will be available in multiple color variants, including Pearl White, Sunrise Gold, Midnight Black, Sakura Pink and Sapphire Blue. The price should start at $300 for the 3GB or RAM and 32GB of storage variant and reach $374 for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will go on sale starting July 19 in China, but there’s no information on availability in other countries.
