The Honor 8 Pro smartphone is set to release next month. The device which was first showcased at MWC 2017 as Honor V9 has been resurrected as Honor 8 Pro in Asian markets, specifically India. The device is expected to launch on July 6th and will be sold exclusively through leading e-commerce platforms.

The smartphone is competitive

The smartphone poses Direct Competition to other flagship devices on the market including upcoming high-end devices like, Google Pixel 2 and Apple’s iPhone 8. The highlight of the smartphone is that it packs the modern, 4th-gen dual camera technology with 8MP rear sensors.

But what exactly makes Honor 8 Pro so special? Let’s find out.

An incredibly designed phone

In comparison to its predecessor, the smartphone packs a completely new design with a metal unibody that measures 6.97mm thickness, further complimented by rounded edges. It's quite surprising how slim the smartphone is especially given the fact that it packs a 4,000mAh battery.

It features a 5.7-inch display with thin borders on all sides. This is especially a plus point because it makes it easier for the user to hold the device. The smartphone is further protected by Gorilla Glass 3 protection, thereby safeguarding the device from all kinds of damage if dropped. As the smartphone comes packed with QHD resolution at 515 pixel-per-inch, the viewing is quite dense.

Decent specs and features

Coming to its primary feature, the smartphone flaunts an 8MP front camera bordered by a recessed metal earpiece, making the smartphone stand out. Unfortunately, the smartphone does not include front-facing stereo speakers the way the Huawei Nexus 6P did. To compensate for the missing stereo speaker, the Honor 8 Pro has a secondary microphone located on the top of the device.
