– 6 GB RAM, 64 GB ROM
– Android 7 (Nougat)
– EMUI 5.1
– 12 MP + 12 MP dual-lens camera
– 184 grams
– 4,000 mAh battery
– 6.97mm thick
– Cardboard VR inside box
Designed to meet the ambitious and fast-paced lifestyles of today’s digital generation, the new device has been built to deliver the best performance for gaming, streaming and photography. A stand-out capability is its high-density 4.000 mAh battery which works in tandem seamlessly with the latest SmartPower 5.0 technology, providing up to two full days of run-time from a single charge.
The handset packs this power into a beautiful, ultra-thin 6.97mm body, making it one of the slimmest smartphones on the market without compromising on performance. Coming in at 5.7 inches, the size of the QHD resolution screen isn’t compromised either, redefining design in the category.
Users can indulge in full HD VR journeys direct from the handset thanks to a brand new VR cardboard headset inside the smartphone box. Pre-installed onto the device, the Jaunt VR app brings 100s of premium, cinematic virtual reality experiences just a click away.
The Honor 8 Pro combines cutting-edge hardware and software with its third generation 12-megapixel dual-lens camera. The two lenses work in tandem to deliver the perfect shot – the monochrome lens captures a black-and-white image with incredible depth of detail, while the RGB lens ensures vivid colour reproduction. The camera’s wide aperture range (f/0.95–f/16) delivers DSLR-like depth of field effects, for both photo and video shooting.
The device also supports shooting of 4k videos encoded in the efficient H.265 codec, which produces files twice as small as its predecessor. And EMUI 5.1 introduces Highlights, a new feature co-developed with GoPro that intelligently organises photos by category and automatically generates video stories that are easily customisable.
