Honor has announced the toned-down version of its flagship tablet, the Honor Pad V8 Pro. And it’s the first tablet to be powered by MediaTek’s new Dimensity 8020 chip. Let’s check out the full specifications, features, and expected price in Nepal of the new Honor Pad V8.

Honor Pad V8 Overview:

Design and Display 

Honor Pad V8 features an 11” 2.5K (2560 x 1600 pixels) IPS LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. Just like its Pro sibling, it’s a pretty slim tablet measuring just 7.3 mm thick. But at 485 gm, Honor has managed to make the Pad V8 significantly more lightweight than Pad V8 Pro (589 gm).

Performance and Battery

Honor Pad V8 is powered by the all-new MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chip, although it seems to be just a rebranded Dimensity 1100. Regardless, it’s a pretty reliable chip for a midrange tablet and should handle most everyday tasks without compromise. Honor has paired this chip with 8GB RAM and 128/256GB of storage. Alongside a microSD slot for further storage expansion.

As for software, the Pad V8 runs on Honor’s MagicUI 6.1 based on Android 12. This tablet gets its juice from a 7250 mAh battery that can charge at 22.5W with the included charger.

Rest of the specs

Cameras aren’t a top priority on tablets and it’s clearly the case here. Honor Pad V8 has a 5MP front camera, while there’s a 13MP sensor at the back which can be useful for taking quick pictures and scanning documents. There is also a 2MP depth sensor here, but it’s really nothing to talk about.

Honor Pad V8 - Accessories

In terms of connectivity, Honor Pad V8 has WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 support. Unfortunately, it’s not available with LTE connectivity. This tablet has an impressive audio setup though, with quad speakers that support DTS:X Ultra. You can also pair Honor Pad V8 with Magic Pencil 3 stylus and Magic Keyboard—although both of them are sold separately.
