As expected, a few hours ago, Huawei has unveiled a new smartphone (indeed, a phablet) in China: Honor Notes 8 is a terminal with a well 6.6 inch (2560 x 1440 pixels high end facilities, display), octa- processor core processor and 4GB of RAM. The price however is not as premium as it will be sold on the Asian market since August 9 at the starting price of ¥ 2299, equal to about 300 euro exchange rate.
But first things first and let’s look at its equipment: Honor Notes 8 integrates a powerful processor Kirin 955 octa-core (4 core Cortex-A72 at 2.5GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.8GHz) with graphic Mali-T880 MP4 , 4GB of RAM and 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of internal memory expandable with microSD cards up to 128GB. It ‘clear that the cheapest SKU, that is the one that costs 300 €, will be able to count on 32GB ROM and not cheap, one with 64GB is around € 340, while the top-of-range version does not exceed 380 €.
Honor Notes 8
Eye, should challenge the same “target market” (editor’s note: the Chinese one) smartphone Xiaomi Max I, a 6:44 inch model but the SKU entry-level offers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC, 3GB of RAM and Full HD display about 200 euro. In short, there is no story.
The 6.6-inch screen Super AMOLED QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) 2.5D, then slightly curved edges, sports a high contrast ratio (on the order of 70,000: 1) that probably will make a difference in the outdoor display or bright environments and is accompanied by a front camera 8 megapixel paired with a 13-megapixel on the back, combined with dual LED flash, OIS and an aperture of f / 2.0. Despite his size, Honor Notes 8 is one of the phablet thinner and lighter outstanding: 178.8 × 90.9 × 18.7 mm and 218 grams weight. On board, to make matters worse, there is also a large 4500 mAh battery, a fingerprint reader, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G TIMES (dual-SIM), GPS, NFC and USB Type-C. The latest information is dedicated to the software, Android 6.0 with Marshmallow EMUI 4.1.
From the first official images circulated, Honor Notes 8 is a nice terminal and is also about the metal body available in three stylish colors: gold, silver and gray. At the moment we do not know if Honor decides to present his new phablet also in Europe (and in Italy), and at what price, but we are confident that within a few weeks I have an update. So, do not bother views
