Honor 8, the latest mid-range Smartpone from Chinese handset maker Huawei Honor has finally hit the Middle East markets.


The Smartphone, which saw its regional launch in Paris on August 24, has been available for customers in the region since September 1 on Honor Arabia’s website.


On Monday, Honor 8, which features a 5.2 inch 1080p display and powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 950 octacore processor, arrived at the stores in the region.


Huwaei Honor’s flagship Smartphone, which sports dual 12MP camera sensors with laser autofocus and an 8MP front facing camera as well as a fingerprint reader, is being sold at a price of AED1,599 in the UAE.


It features a 3,000 mAh battery, which the company claims comes with Smart Power 4.0 feature that maximises stand-by time allowing the Honor 8 to keep going for up to 1.22 days of heavy usage.




The phone with a 4GB of RAM runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei’s Emotion UI 4.1 running on top.


Customers in the UAE and Saudi Arabia have an additional benefit of a free pick-up and delivery service for handsets under warranty and free screen protection warranty for three months.


“We are really excited to bring the Honor 8 here to the Middle East, as we feel it will capture the attention of Smartphone users here with both its beauty and brains. We are proud to be able to offer more people the kind of technology normally accessible only to those with the wallet power to match, as the Honor 8 blows its price competitors out of the water,” said Sun Baigong, vice president of Huawei Honor Middle East.
