Aiming to give OnePlus 5 a run for cover, Huawei’s e-brand Honor today officially launched its much-anticipated device — Honor 8 Pro in India that comes with dual lens camera setup and 6GB of RAM.
Priced at Rs 29,999, Honor 8 Pro will be exclusively available to Amazon Prime members on Prime Day starting July 10, 6 p.m. The box of the device can be used as a VR headset.
The Honor 8 Pro has been designed under the partnership with Amazon, Gameloft, GoPro, Jaunt VR and Deep Silver Fishlabs to enrich digital lifestyles through enhanced smartphone experiences.
The Honor 8 Pro sports 12+12MP dual-lens camera, supports 4K video recording and runs on EMUI 5.1. The smartphone comes with a new feature co-developed with Go Pro that intelligently organizes photos by category and automatically generates video stories that are easily customizable.
The device features 2K display, 79 per cent screen-to-body ratio and runs on the latest 16nm Kirin 960 octa-core processor backed by 128GB ROM (that can be further expanded via micro-SD card to 256GB).
The company also showcased a new Honor Band 3 with intelligent tracking features like heart rate monitoring, walking/running and sleep tracking. The Honor Band 3 is also the first device of its kind to feature 50metre water resistance and 30 days battery life on a single charge.
The new band will come in three funky colors and will be announced later this month exclusively on Amazon.in.
The device comes bundled with a cardboard viewer and an OTA update for the Jaunt VR app containing a wealth of video content. Users can also dive into the exhilarating world of Galaxy on Fire 3, with their own customized Honor Spaceship and enjoy 3D gaming owing to the first of its kind Vulkan 3D API.
India is one of the key markets for Honor and the company plans to grow exponentially with the new gamut of product offerings.
The global smartphone major has also revamped its after sales services and now has over 250 service centers across the country. The company is also expanding its distribution network by partnering to create a comprehensive nationwide distribution system.
