A week ago, Huawei's Honor brand teased an event for August and it has now officially unveiled its next handset in China in the form of the Note 8.
The Note 8 is a giant handset with a 6.6-inch QHD display that is aimed at taking on other competitors' phablets like Xiaomi's Mi Max. The handset will be powered by Huawei's octa-core Kirin 955 processor, will have 4GB RAM, and also come with a minimum of 32GB storage. The device will also offer a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization and an 8MP front-facing camera. Those hoping for 4K video recording will be disappointed, as the handset is only capable of 1080p. The 4500mAh battery should be able to provide most with a full day, if not two, of typical use, with charging occurring via USB Type C.
The Note 8 will be available starting August 9th in China and will start at ¥2299 CNY, around $350 USD.
