Honor 8S Images and Specifications Appeared: Chinese phone manufacturer Honor announced the Honor 8A Pro yesterday, and soon after that, Honor 8S images and specifications appeared.
In the medium term, Huawei’s subsidiary brand Honor is to become the fourth largest smartphone provider in the world. For this to succeed, one floods the market, among other things with cheaper entry-level hardware. An example is the Honor 8S, which despite low price with “Notch” display and full HD video support is expected.
What is known?
The Honor 8S has not yet been officially launched but is expected to celebrate its premiere in the coming days. With a 5.71-inch display, the 8S is one of the smallest new smartphones currently available, whereby of course a panel with a clearly stretched format is also used here. The resolution of the IPS screen is 1520×720 pixels and is quite sufficient in the relatively small size.

Under the hood, there is the Helio A22 Octa-core SoC, which unlike more expensive Huawei smartphones is not from the in-house processor forge HiSilicon, but from the Taiwanese chip manufacturer MediaTek.
It’s an eight-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor that clocks up to 2.0 gigahertz and combines at least two gigabytes of memory with 32-gigabyte internal flash memory. In Western Europe, the Honor 8S will apparently also come with three GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. A MicroSD card slot ensures good expandability.
With the cameras, the customer gets served simple fare in the Honor 8S. The main camera sits on the back and works with 13 megapixels, although we do not know anything about the aperture size.
What is certain is that despite the positioning in the lower price segment with the 8S can easily record 1080p video. In the display cutout at the top sits a 5-megapixel camera for self-portraits. The operating system running Android 9.0 with the Huawei’s own EMUI 9.0 interface.
The capacity of the battery used in the Honor 8S is given as 3020mAh with the power supply unfortunately still done via a MicroUSB connection. The device is 8.45 millimeters thick and is housed in a completely made of the plastic housing, which is to be offered in the colors black, blue and gold.
Price and When to expect?
There are no details yet, about the availability and the exact price of the new model, but it can be assumed that sooner or later the Honor 8S will be revealed.
