The Huawei Honor V8 is the first in a new V series of smartphones and it has an all-metal build.

Variants are available with a 5.7-inch display and Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, and another with the same sized display but with Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440. This makes it the first Honor smartphone to include Quad HD display resolution.

It has a dual 12-megapixel rear camera set-up with dual LED flash and laser autofocus, while up front there’s an 8-megapixel shooter. The smartphone gets its juice from a non-removable 3500 mAh battery and features fast charging.
This new Honor phone is a dual SIM device, and connectivity is covered by 4G+ and VoLTE, 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS/GLONASS, USB Type-C, and NFC. It features support for the Huawei Pay payment system and another feature is a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the handset. The Honor V8 runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS skinned with EMUI 4.1 UI. The phone is offered in Gold, Gray, Pink, Silver, and White color options.
Now we get to the pricing of the device. The Huawei Honor V8 price for the variant with Full HD display resolution, 32GB of internal storage, and without NFC is CNY 2,299 (around $352). Alternatively the variant that includes Full HD, 32GB of internal memory, and NFC is priced at CNY, 2,499 (around $384).
