Huawei has announced the V8, the new flagship in the Chinese manufacturer's Honor series of devices. Consumers can choose from different display and processor options but the camera module is the same on all variants. The Honor V8 features a dual-camera setup that looks very similar in terms of specifications to the one found on the Huawei P9, but has to make do without the P9's Leica branding.

Both 12MP sensors come with a 1.76-micron pixel-size and are coupled with a 6-element lens with F2.2 aperture. There is also a dual-LED flash and the AF-system is laser-assisted. As on the P9, the front camera offers an 8MP sensor and F2.4 aperture. 

In terms of display resolution customers get to choose from Full-HD or Quad-HD but all displays measure 5.7-inches and come with 2.5HD curved glass. The Android 6.0 operating system with Huawei EMUI 4.1 skin is powered by an octa-Core Kirin 950 or 955 chipset. RAM is 4GB on all models but the model with the higher-resolution screen comes with 64GB of storage while the Full-HD variant has to make do with 32GB.

Energy on all models is provided by a 3,500mAh battery that is charged via a USB Type-C connector. In China the Full-HD base model will retail for approximately $350 while to the top-end version with QHD-screen and 64GB storage will set you back approximately $439.
