Honor’s latest budget offering, the Honor 8A, will be announced in China on January 8th. However, the phone has already been listed on Honor’s online store Vmall and is also available for pre-orders. The website also reveals all the details of the handset along with the pricing. Just yesterday, official renders of the phone were also leaked online, so we already know what it looks like.

The Honor 8A is the successor to the Honor 7A and it will be available for purchase in China soon after its launch on January 8th. The device is already available for pre-order on Vmall, which means that interested folks can head over to the site and reserve the phone for a very small amount.
Honor has priced the phone starting at 799 Yuan, which is about Rs 8,000. This is for the variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. If you want 64GB of storage, you will have to pay 999 Yuan (Rs 10,000).
