Other colors unaffected.

Fresh from the news that 1.5 million units have been sold worldwide, there's word that the Honor 8 will face stock shortages in the UK — at least in the popular blue color option.

AC understands that a high demand for the blue model in particular has resulted in stock being nearly depleted — a "knock-on effect" of higher than anticipated sales during the first two months of availability, we're told. It's not known for how long the blue model will remain in short supply, nor exactly how long the existing supplies at Three, Amazon and vMall will last.

The black and white models are unaffected by the shortage, and remain readily available through the usual channels.
