The sub-brand of Huawei, the Honor 8C, was unveiled as at an event in China yesterday. The device is making headlines for being the first ever smartphone that houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset.
The Honor 8C is a budget-oriented smartphone that comes in a plastic body. It sports a tall 6.23-inch IPS LCD display with a notch on top. This display is of HD+ resolution and has a pixel density of 269 PPI. The major talking point here is definitely what’s inside. The Honor 8C is among the few smartphones from Huawei not to come with the company’s own Kirin chipset. It is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor. In terms of memory and storage, the device has 4 GB of RAM with 32 or 64 GB of internal memory.
The Honor 8C runs on Android v8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 on top as a skin. In terms of camera, it is equipped with dual 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear-facing cameras with f/1.8 and f/2.4 aperture respectively. The secondary camera here has been used for applying depth effect. For capturing selfies, there is an 8-megapixel camera up front that has a f/2.0 aperture.
The Honor 8C has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner but lacks a gyro sensor. There is a large 4,000 mAh battery inside backing up the whole device. It, however, lacks fast charging technology.
