Honor plans to continue their momentum as they launch the Honor 8C in China. As the name suggests, this is the more affordable option for the Honor 8X.
The feature list for the Honor 8C starts with its large 6.26-inch HD+ screen. It has ultra-thin side bezels, although the notch and the thick chin are here to stay.
Under the hood, the Honor 8C is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor. It’s quite surprising that Honor didn’t use any of their own Kirin chipsets, but the one they picked can deliver decent performance, nonetheless.
Another big thing about the Honor 8C is its 4,000mAh battery. Honor claims that it provides impressive hours of continues usage and standby time, and we expect it to really deliver.
Lastly, there’s a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual camera affair on the back. While on the front we have a single 8-megapixel camera for selfies. It will then come with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, with Honor’s own EMUI 8.2 interface on top.
