Huawei Honor 8 Pro Release Date, Price and Specs

Looking for a new, unlocked Android 7.0 phone? With a big ol’ battery? And two cameras on the back?

Add the Huawei Honor 8 Pro to your list. The unlocked 5.7-inch handset is an upper-midrange phone that comes with some impressive hardware specs. Its most compelling features: the dual-camera setup on the back and the 4,000mAh battery, which Huawei says will last more than a full day and closer to two.

It runs on Huawei’s latest home-made octa-core processor, along with a hearty 6GB of RAM, and so far in our testing seems more than competent.

The big battery means the phone is chunky to hold, but the solid metal build makes it feel like one of the more premium devices Honor has launched. The navy blue hue of our review model looks great, too, and the way the glass screen curves at the edge to meet the body is a nice touch. The fingerprint sensor on the back works well and you can swipe your finger over it to browse photos or bring up the notification panel.

In terms of images, the Honor 8 has a similar setup to Huawei’s P10 — one 12-megapixel sensor takes photos in colour, while the other shoots only in black and white. We really liked the artistic quality of the black and white shots on the P10 and while the P10’s cameras have higher resolutions, we’re hoping the Honor will deliver similarly satisfying results.

You can preorder the Honor 8 Pro on April 5 in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. It’ll cost £475 or 549 euros, which converts to roughly $585 or AU$770, with no word yet on US or Australian availability.
