Huawei’s latest launch the Honor 8 Pro is an all round stunner that packs quite a mean punch. Delivering maximum performance in a minimalist package, the new device sets a new standard in every way – with cutting-edge processing power, long lasting battery life, 5.7-inch Quad HD display and a dual-lens camera all packed into an impossibly thin 6.97mm body.
The Honor 8 Pro has been engineered from the ground up to meet the performance needs of today’s power users and gamers, with industry-leading hardware and software that delivers extreme speed including Kirin 960 chipset, Mali-G71, as well as the new EMUI 5.1 system.
Despite its high performance and slim profile, honor 8 Pro is equipped with Smart Power 5.0 and the battery provides 2 days of regular use, allowing almost 1.44 days of heavy use. Its 4000mAh high density (710 Wh/L) battery and advanced power-saving features spell the end of battery anxiety.
The device also comes VR-ready, with a bundled cardboard viewer and pre-installed Jaunt VR app containing a wealth of video content. Users will also be able to dive into the exhilarating world of Galaxy on Fire 3, the first 3D game running on the Vulkan interface.
The honor 8 Pro’s combination of cutting-edge hardware and software culminates in its 12-megapixel dual-lens camera. The two lenses work in tandem to deliver the perfect shot, in which the monochrome lens captures a black-and-white image with incredible depth of detail while the RGB lens ensure faithful and vivid color reproduction – and sophisticated software brings the best of two worlds together.
The device also supports shooting of 4K videos, encoded in the efficient H.265 codec, which produces files twice as small as its predecessor. EMUI 5.1 also introduces Highlights, a new feature co-developed with Go Pro that intelligently organises photos by category and automatically generates video stories that are easily customisable, allowing you to share memories with ease.
