Huawei Terminal brand Honor has launched the Honor 8 Pro in Europe. This upgraded variant of the Honor 8 is essentially the rebranded version of the Honor V9 launched in China two months ago. The device is launching in UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. Pre-orders for the device have already begun, and it is priced at GBP 480 (roughly Rs. 38,900) in the UK and EUR 549 (roughly Rs. 38,100) in mainland Europe, and shipping will begin on April 20.

The Honor 8 Pro sports a 5.7-inch QHD display. That display is not for waste as one of the phone’s USP is its VR capabilities. Honor is pushing this by bundling the phone with a pair of cardboard VR glasses in the box and a VR game called Galaxy on Fire.


Honor 8 Pro runs on Android 7.0 Nougat- based on Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 OS, and supports a hybrid dual-SIM slot which means users will have to choose between using two SIM cards or a microSD card. The smartphone features a 5.7-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) LTPS LCD display and is powered by Kirin 960 (4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz + 4 Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.4GHz) coupled with 6GB of RAM. It offers 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded further by using the hybrid microSD card slot (up to 256GB). The Honor 8 Pro has dual 12MP cameras and a fingerprint scanner on the back. The rear cameras have the same pixel count as that of the Honor 8 last year but have ditched the glass front and back for metal. The Honor 8 Pro is also missing the Honor 8’s Smart Key.


Getting to the camera, the Honor 8 Pro sports an 8-megapixel f/2.0 camera at the front for selfies and video chats. The smartphone packs a 4000mAh battery, and connectivity options include a rear fingerprint sensor, NFC support, USB Type-C charging, 4G LTE, and Bluetooth v4.2. Interestingly, the Honor 8 Pro’s retail box turns into a Google Cardboard viewer for VR as well. The smartphone comes with the game Galaxy on Fire 3 and Jaunt VR app pre-installed. There is a 4000mAh battery that supplies power and Honor says you should be able to get 2 days from regular use or 1.44 days of heavy use. Even with the big battery, the Honor 8 Pro is just 6.97mm thick and weighs 183g.
