Huawei has been paving the way for excellent budget phones with its Honor series and its latest iteration has now arrived in the form of the Honor 8. Huawei is launching the Honor 8 in the Middle East on September 1 and the device can be pre-ordered on HonorArabia.com from August 24.
It’s already launched in China and is also making waves in the US through early reviews, something budget-focused smartphones manufacturers don’t usually bother exploring. Thanks to the great industrial design Huawei incorporates along with specs that work great for your average smartphone user, the Honor 8 is bound to be at the top of many wish lists worldwide.
Among its top features, the Honor 8 boasts a 0.4-second unlock speed 3D fingerprint scanner and Huawei has stuck to the dual camera technology first introduced in the P9 with a 12MP camera at the back.
