Honor is taking on the budget segment with the introduction of the all-new Honor 8A. The Huawei owned smartphone brand has made its new budget-centric smartphone official with a listing on Vmall, its online store. The Honor 8A price in China starts at 799 Yuan, which roughly translates to Rs 8,000.
Honor 8A specs
Sporting a 6-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1560 x 720 pixels it offers a 283 PPI pixel density. Powered by MediaTek’s Helio P35 processor, which is an octa-core chipset with a clock speed at 1.8GHz. The internals includes a 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 512GB storage expansion. There would be a 64GB internal storage option as well.
The camera department has a single rear camera of 13MP resolution with f/1.8 aperture. Whereas on the front it will have an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. The handset would be running on the Android 9 Pie based EMUI 9.0. The connectivity features include dual-SIM support, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and USB 2.0 port.
This would be the second smartphone in China that was announced with Helio 35, which is MediaTek’s new chipset for the budget-centric phones. The first phone to come with this chipset was the Xiaomi’s Mi Play smartphone launched late last month.
Honor at some point might bring this phone to India, but as of now, the company seems to be occupied with Honor 10 Lite and Honor View 20 launches that are scheduled to happen this month. For people looking forward to buying Honor 8A in China, they can grab it starting tomorrow when the booking opens. It will be available in three colour variants magic night black, aurora blue, and platinum gold.
