Honor has launched its new budget-friendly tablet, the Honor Pad 8, in China. The tablet competes with the likes of Oppo Pad Air and Xiaomi Pad 5. So, let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Honor Pad 8 in Nepal.
Honor Pad 8 Overview:
Design and Display
The Honor Pad 8 features a design language similar to many Android tablets out there. The back is made of anodized aluminum, weighing about 520 grams. Its 6.9mm thickness is also in line with the competition.
The Pad 8 is equipped with a 12-inch 2K LCD on the front. It has narrow 7.2mm bezels, which is a good viewing experience when paired with the 10:6 aspect ratio. However, it lacks a high 120Hz refresh rate like the Xiaomi Pad 5.
The display also has TUV Rheinland hardware-level low blue light, no flicker, and eye protection certification.

The optics on the Honor Pad 8 are handled by a single 5MP shooter on the back. Likewise, the front bezel houses a 5MP sensor for selfies and video conferences.
