Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei has a new model on the horizon, with the Honor 8 set to be officially announced on the 11th of July, 2016.
The Honor 8 has been the subject of the rumour machine for a good while now, with a recent submission to TENAA in China also revealing some of its specs. We're looking at a 5.2 inch screen at 1080p, as well as up to 4 gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of storage. We're hearing there's a 12MP shooter on the back (there may be some kind of dual lens setup) and an 8MP selfie cam.
Huawei has sent out official invites to the reveal of the new phone, which will take place in China on the 11th of July at 18.30 local time - that's 11.30 in the morning Irish time. It is expected that the phone will be available very soon after in China but there's no word on an international roll out just yet.
Huawei has been upping its international game in recent years, taking aim at the top players in the field like Apple and Samsung. With a huge user base in China a foothold in the West is all it will take to really challenge the top smartphone manufacturers in the world.
