Huawei Honor V8 Official With Dual 12MP Cameras & 5.7-inch 2K Display

Huawei has officially unveiled Honor V8 flagship series models at an event today in China. The company had been teasing the new lineup for the past couple of weeks and now, all the details about the device have been made official.

Like expected, the new Honor V8 comes with a diamond cut all metal body for a premium finish. The basic design seems to be built up from Huawei P9 series. The company will be making the phone available in six different colors, ceramic white, rose gold, ice silver, champagne gold, elegant gray, and light gold platinum. Huawei is targeting the young generation with this device and wants the V8 to be a platform for them to enter the world of virtual reality.

In case you are wondering, here are the measurements of the device: 157.00 * 77.60 * 7.75 (mm)

Weight: 170 grams

The Honor V8 comes with a large 5.7-inch 2K display which translates into a resolution of 515 ppi. There’s a standard version as well which features 1080p resolution. The phone reportedly features a professional eye protection technology for the screen. The display is ideal for watching movies because the phone has a special cinema mode in landscape, plus there are other features like stereo speakers to enhance the overall viewing experience.

Under the hood, there will be the Kirin 950 octa-core chipset with i5 co-processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage. The storage is further expandable via MicroSD. The battery will be of 3500mAh capacity and supports 9V 2A fast charging technology. As for the fingerprint, the Honor V8 comes with 3D fingerprint technology which prevents fake fingerprint payment possibilities and unlocks the device faster. The phone also supports mobile payments and NFC enabled credit card payments.

Now, coming to the interesting part, the Honor V8 comes with dual 12MP cameras at the back. One sensor collects the black and white information while the other collects the color information. The setup supports PDAF, depth of focus and Laser Focus, so basically three different types of focuses. The aperture on this device is reportedly 36% larger than the Honor 6 Plus, delivering 40% increase in performance. The phone also comes with support for dynamic 3D panorama camera feature. We have not yet seen any samples from this setup, but we can expect them pretty soon. Up front, you have a standard 8MP camera for selfies.
