Huawei Honor 8A Highlights and Overview

The Huawei Honor 8A is very similar to the Honor Play 8A. The major difference being that this version has a 2GB RAM variant, making it more pocket friendly than the play version. 

Specification wise, everything remains the same, save the absent of a 2GB RAM variant on the play version; so you are still getting a 6.09-inch HD+ waterdrop notch display, which the company claim has 87% screen-to-body ratio.

It is powered by the same MediaTek Helio P35 12nm SoC, runs Android 9.0 (Oreo), and has a 13-megapixel rear camrea with f/1.8 aperture, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

Sorry, but this unit doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor, instead, Huawei loaded the device with an impressive face unlock that can scan up 1024 facial points.

It comes with dedicated dual SIM and microSD card slots and packs a 30200mAh battery. Other key specifications and silent features of the Huawei Honor 8A smartphone are detailed in the specification table below.
