The boundary between the flagship and mid-range smartphones is getting close, and Huawei has just announced their latest midrange phone, the Honor 8 that justifies my previous assertion with a metal build and top-of-the-line specs.

The Huawei Honor 8 comes in three variants. The most expensive variant is priced at $373, and sports a 5.2-inch FullHD IPS display, a powerful Kirin 950 CPU (4 cortex A72 @2.5GHz + 4 Cortex A53 @2.3GHz), 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB of inbuilt storage with microSD card slot, a dual 12-megapixel dual camera which could be similar to once seen on the P9, an 8MP wide angle front camera, IR blaster, Fingerprint sensor, Android Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 and a 3000mAh battery with Huawei’s fast-charging technology support and USB Type-C port.
