Huawei has already launched its flagship, the Honor 8 Pro in European smartphones market.
Finally, the company has decided to bring the elder brother of the amazing Honor 8 to the Indian markets as well.
The Honor 8 Pro is the beefed up version of the company’s successful Honor 8 smartphone.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Honor 8 Pro packs in some pretty amazing specifications and looks absolutely stunning as well, all at a price way cheaper than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 Plus.
Honor 8 Pro Specifications
- A 5.7-inch Quad HD 2K display
- EMUI 5.1 on top of Android Nougat
- 4,000 mAh battery
- Kirin 960 chipset
- 6 GB of RAM
- 128 GB of internal storage
- External SD card support
- 4th generation twin 12 MP cameras (1 RGB sensor + 1 Monochrome sensor)
- Available in Midnight Black and Platinum Gold color variants
Looking at these specifications, one can easily make out that the Honor 8 Pro is going to give a serious competition not just to the recently unveiled OnePlus 5, but also the more expensive phones need to watch out as the Huawei flagship can easily drive away a lot of potential buyers from their court.
Why would the Honor 8 Pro be any trouble to OnePlus 5?
If you know the stiff competition the OnePlus 3T and the Honor 8 had given to each other, you probably are aware of what’s coming. The Honor 8 Pro is soon going head-to-head with the OnePlus 5 and it may even prove better than the latter.
There are some valid reasons for that.
- The lack of an expandable storage option in the OnePlus 5 might be a reason for concern among the end user
- Huawei’s proprietary EMUI is an ultra-smooth and responsive Android custom skin and offers a lot of customizations whereas the OnePlus 5 has a near to stock Android experience. However fluid and clean it may be, there are users who like the more animated ROMs in their smartphones
- The OnePlus 5 has an amazing display and there is no denying this fact. It, however, is nowhere near the Honor 8 Pro at least on paper which offers a Quad HD display at nearly the same price
- The base variant of the Honor 8 Pro offers 128 GB of internal storage as compared to the 64 GB in the OnePlus 5 counterpart
All this being said, both the OnePlus 5 and the Honor 8 Pro are amazing smartphones and are by no means less than amazing. We can make a list of their pros and cons all we want, but it will ultimately depend on the personal choice of the end user.
