Just last week, Huawei’s Honor sub brand released its first teaser for the launch of its upcoming Honor V8 smartphone. Today, the smartphone has been spotted passing through China’s TENAA regulatory agency, revealing a number of key hardware specifications.
The first jewel of information gleaned from the listing is that the handset will arrive in three different variants, with the model numbers KNT-AL10, KNT-TL10, and the KNT-AL20. The first two are just different color options, silver and rose gold, but the latter variant boasts some more powerful internal hardware.
The AL10 and TL10 models of the Honor V8 will be arriving with a 2.3GHz octa-core processor, most likely the company’s in house Kirin 950, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot. The phone will also feature a rather larger 5.7-inch display with a familiar 1080p resolution. The KNT-AL20 variant is said to come with a slightly more powerful Kirin 955 processor that is clocked at 2.5GHz. This is the same chip inside the new Huawei P9. The handset will also launch with an upgraded 64GB of internal memory and a QHD (2560×1440) display resolution in the same 5.7-inch panel.
The remaining specifications appear to be identical across all of the models. The Honor V8 is listed with a dual 12 megapixel rear camera configuration, an 8 megapixel front facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity and the usual assortment of wireless options, along with a 3,400 mAh battery. The range will be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box and we can clearly see a fingerprint scanner placed on the back of the handset. Finally, the TENAA listing gives dimensions of 157.00 × 77.60 × 7.75 mm and a weight set at 170 grams.
The phone’s launch event is scheduled for May 10th, so there’s still a couple of weeks left to wait to find out the last of the details. Will you be tuning in?
