To recall the Honor 8C specifications, it packs a 6.26-inch HD+ (1,520 x 720 pixels) display with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a cut-out on top. The phone is powered by the 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 632 chipset integrated with Adreno GPU. The chipset in China has been paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/ 64GB storage, which is further expandable up to 256GB with a microSD card.
For photography, the Honor 8C features a combination of a 13-megapixel primary sensor (f/1.8) and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor (f/2.4) with LED flash on the rear. On the front, the phone gets an 8-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The cameras are said to be backed by Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enhance the results further.
The Honor 8C boots Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with custom EMUI 8.2 skin on top. A 4,000mAh battery fuels the device. Apart from this, you get a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and connectivity options such as dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS+GLONASS with Honor 8C. As for the pricing, we expect the Honor 8C to be a budget offering. It’s expected to come in Aurora Blue and Midnight Black shades in India.
