Honor, Huawei's subbrand, announced that the Honor 8 is set to come to the U.S. next month (as well as to Europe, though details will be finalized at a launch event on August 24).
Built on the foundation of the excellent Huawei P9, though eschewing the dual-toned all-metal design for a metal-and-glass look, the Honor 8 will arrive in early September for $399 for a 32GB model, and $449 for a 64GB model. It shares the same vivid 5.2-inch 1080p IPS display as the P9, but steps down the processor to a Kirin 950 from the slightly-faster Kirin 955. Thankfully, Honor saw fit to add an extra gigabyte of RAM to the Honor 8, giving it 4GB in total and a spring to its performance step.
Along with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 software, which sits on top of Android 6.0, the Honor 8 features dual 12MP rear cameras — one color, one monochrome — and an ultra-fast fingerprint sensor.
The phone will be available in three colors, Sapphire Blue, Pearl White, and Midnight Black, though the blue version will be a Best Buy exclusive for 60 days. Pre-orders begin August 17 and end September 3, and each pre-order will receive a $50 gift card from that participating retailer for accessories or anything else in the store.
While there are no carrier partners in the U.S., the phone will be available in both sizes at Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, and Newegg, along with HiHonor.com.
