Honor, the subsidiary brand owned by Huawei has confirmed that the Honor 8 Pro will be launching in India soon. It was announced back in April, and its biggest highlight is the dual camera setup at the back just like we have seen earlier on Honor 8.
Huawei provided a statement regarding this to press and media, which stated that Huawei is a proud manufacturer of some of best camera smartphones available in the Indian market today like Honor 6X, Huawei P9 and Honor 8. The press release also mentioned that Huawei pioneered dual lens cameras in Honor 6 Plus with dual 8 megapixel rear sensors and received great appreciation from the tech world and in terms of sales. Honor 6X featured an innovative dual-lens rear camera with a wide aperture range and produces professional-looking background blur to make subjects stand out and enables it to capture quality shots even in low-light settings.
Now, the Honor 8 Pro will come with their 4th Gen dual camera setup. The Honor 8 Pro has already been launched in Europe with a price-tag of EUR 549 which so we can expect this phone to be priced at around Rs. 35,000-40,000 in India. The Honor 8 Pro sports two 12-megapixel sensors with f/2.2 aperture, laser autofocus, LED flash, and the ability to record videos at 4K. It sports a 5.7-inch QHD LCD display and it is powered by Kirin 960 (4 Cortex-A53 @ 1.8GHz + 4 Cortex-A73 cores @ 2.4GHz) coupled with 6GB of RAMn and 64GB of storage. The phone will be running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with EMUI 5.1 on top. The front camera on the Honor 8 Pro is an 8-megapixel f/2.0 shooter. And this time, we get a huge 4000mAh battery inside the phone.
Expressing his thoughts on Huawei’s continuous innovation, Mr. Allen Wang (Director, Product Center, Huawei India Consumer Business Group) said, “In this industry, we need to constantly innovate to serve our customers better. Our focus is to bridge innovation and technology, create an elite ecosystem of industry visionaries and offer products that significantly enhance the way people connect with one another. Our success, which is backed by three pillars – passion, collective wisdom and meaningful innovation, has made us one of the top three global smartphone brands. As a part of our strategy, we will leverage on our innovations to shape the next era of consumer technology.”
