Honor has taken the covers off of two new cell phones for China: the mid-range Honor 8 Lite and the flagship Honor V9. While there’s no information yet on a US launch for both of these devices, today’s declarations may give us a notion of what the Chinese company may bring to the US on the coming months.
The Honor 8 Lite may be familiar, since the standard adaptation of that cell phone actually released in the US the previous fall (it also leaked early in this month).
That cell phone houses a 5.2-inch 1080p display, the Kirin 655 SoC (a striking downgrade from the Kirin 950 in the standard Honor 8), a solitary 12MP f/2.2 shooter in the rear, and a 8MP camera on the front. The base model has 16GB of internal capacity, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The V9 — which we can trust may advance toward the US in the end — is unquestionably the flagship of the two, housing the octa-core Huawei Kirin 960 framework on-a-chip and an incredible 6GB of RAM. There are possibilities for 64GB or 128GB of capacity, a 4,000 mAh battery on board, and a 12MP f/2.2 double camera setup around the rear. The greater part of this powers a 5.7-inch display around the front with Gorilla Glass on the top.
For China, the Honor 8 Lite will come in the colors Midnight Black, Streamer Gold, Sea Blue and Pearl White, while the V9 comes in three hues: Gold, Black, and Blue. The V9 lead doesn’t have a sticker price right now, however the Honor 8 Lite will cost you 2599 Yuan (about $377) for the base model, which is much of the same value as the standard Honor 8 in the US.
