Honor has released an Honor 8 teaser, to satisfy those that felt a bit hard done when the Honor 5C was announced last week instead.

Pick yourself off the floor, the Honor 8 is back on and it it’s apparently going to be the best looking Honor device to date. If you remember, Honor held a virtual reality reveal last week to announce the Honor 5C. The Internet was widely expecting the follow up to the impressive Honor 7, the Honor 8.

You can rest easy now as Honor’s next announcement is sure to be the Honor 8, if you take a look at the Honor 8 teaser above. The tagline with the poster reads “beauty out of the ordinary,” corroborating rumours and talks about the Honor 8 being a serious fashion project for Honor.

There has been mention of a double glass design with more screen real estate, thanks to thinned down bezels.

Honor 8 teaser or Huawei P9 teaser?

The Honor 8 is expected to be a mid-range device with a very attractive price tag, but the rumoured specs surpass even Huawei’s latest flagship the P9. It will reportedly sport the Kirin 955 octa-core processor, Huawei’s latest flagship processor and seen on the Huawei P9. Another up on the P9 is the rumoured 4GB of RAM, which will feature in all variants; 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.

Screen real estate will be 5.2-inches with a full HD, 1080p resolution panel. As for the snapper we should be expecting 12-megapixels for a new dual rear-camera system (again P9 inspired). The Honor 8 will also feature a rear-facing fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C and a 3,200mAh battery.

Four variants of the Honor 8 is expected: 32GB no NFC, 32GB with NFC, 64GB and 128GB. The 128GB variant is expected to get a QHD panel upgrade.

The Honor 8 is expected to be announced in July with July 5th the supposed date. The Honor 7 retails for around £249.99, although if the rumoured massive upgrade in specs prove to be true, we should expect a price north of £250.
