Honor is relatively a new brand for the Nepali smartphone market. And it has just a handful of devices in its lineup. The cheapest Honor phone available in Nepal is the Honor 8s. Let’s find out the specs, updated price, and availability of  Honor 8s in Nepal.

Honor 8s Overview:

Entry-level devices usually come with a bland and highly normal design. But Honor, unconventionally, wrapped the Honor 8s with a dual-textured back, due to which the handset looks quite striking. The body is made of plastic however, the phone doesn’t look cheap.

Going by the specs, the handset features a 5.71-inch display with a tiny notch on the top. Maintaining the standards of entry-level devices, the phone comes with HD+ resolution. The display features a notch on the top of the screen to house the 5MP selfie camera. The bezel on the bottom is more evident than on the side and it features the logo of Honor. There’s no fingerprint sensor on the device for biometrics.
