Honor has announced the launch of its new mid-range smartphone, the Honor 8C, in India. Honor 8C is the world’s first smartphone equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor.
Honor 8C is quite an affordable smartphone but manages to pack in mid-range specifications. There’s a Snapdragon 632 processor with 4GB of RAM, backed by a large 4000mAh battery. The company claims that the Honor 8C can run for 2 days in one charge.
On the camera front, Honor 8C is equipped with a 13MP + 2MP AI Dual camera with f/1.8 aperture and new AI modes that can recognize 22 objects and 500 scenarios. There’s also AI Face Unlock along with an 8MP front-facing camera with soft light.
There’s no Android 9 Pie out of the box since the Honor 8C comes with EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
