And if our headline does not convince you enough, think that in China they have called it Honor V9, going a step beyond Honor 8. Because Honor 8 Pro is the great top-of-the-range smartphone we've been waiting since the birth of the brand of Huawei. A high-end Android smartphone with a metal design that promises a battery life of more than 2 days. This is the great ambition of Honor for this year, as is also shown in the retail price: € 549.
Therefore, Honor 8 Pro is, as expected, the European version of Honor V9, the flagship launched in China a few months ago. This means that there is no difference between the two, neither at hardware level nor at aesthetic or software level. And this also means that, despite what its name may suggest, it has nothing to do with the standard version of the phone. In fact, this one is made of aluminum, has a different design and is equipped with a higher level hardware (although this has logic in the added Pro).
It has a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels (QHD), a SoC Kirin 960 octa-core at 2.4 GHz, 6 GB of RAM LPDDR4, 64 GB of internal memory UFS 2.1, expandable with microSD, a rear camera with two 12-megapixel sensors, an 8-megapixel front camera, a 4,000 mAh battery with quick charge technology, Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 and a fingerprint reader located at the back.
Also note the presence of an infrared sensor to control other compatible devices, such as TVs, air conditioners, etc., and OTG support to connect USB drives, mouse, keyboards and other devices of this type. Very important technical details, like size and weight, because it is a large and heavy device, as it measures 157 x 77.5 x 7 millimeters and weighs 184 grams (being quite thin).
