Honor 8, Honor 8 Smart and Honor Holly 3 launch

Last year The Huawei Brand launch it’s Honor 7 in India. Also, the honor 7 turned to be a surprisingly a Good device for us. The Honor 8 is a much better, enhanced successor to its company. Honor is just two years and three months old brand. The Company was only supposed to sell the phone online, but this year they also seem to change, and that is making the phones available for the offline market as well in India. Making the phone available for the offline market was a much better different move the honor did. It wasn’t expected for such move and honor also surprised with launching two more devices in India. Those were Honor 8 Smart and Honor Holly 3.

The Honor 6 Plus was the first device which had a dual camera lens and Honor itself dropped that idea in Honor 7. Right now in the Honor 8, they brought back the dual camera setup same as the Huawei P9 which was launched last month. The one lens captures RGB and other captures Monochrome. The company said it captures more light than the conventional sensor. Both the sensor are equipped with 12 MP camera. Also, they revamp the complete phone design with both side glass which has more than three layers of glass.

That was just about the camera and design Here is the remaining specs

  • 16 nm Krin 650 Octa-core Processor for performance and best battery
  • 8 MP camera optimised for low-light selfies
  • 5.5 inch 1080p display

This was an entirely surprise device for us, As they never came out with a smart version of their flagship device.

Specs for it is as follows

  • 5.2 inch 1080p Display
  • SONY IMX214 13 MP rear camera sensor
  • 8MP front camera
  • 3000 mAh battery
  • 650 Krin Octacore chipset

Honor Holly 3

Honor Holly series has always been a budget smartphone of the Honor Lineup and even this year they did come out with its new device. It’s a 5.5-inch screen smartphone with massive 3100 mAh battery. It’s said to have the luxurious 3D back cover. It also has 13 MP camera and 8MP front camera.

We also mentioned earlier that Honor would be selling this device offline as well. For the offline market, they have partnered with 50,000 retail outlets by the end of 2016.There will be about 350+ distributors in India.

Price of Honor 8, Honor 8 Smart, and Honor Holly


Version                                INR (includes tax)

  Price colors
Honor 8 Rs. 29,999 Pearl White, Sapphire Blue, Sunrise Gold
Honor 8 Smart Rs. 19,999  Black, White, Gold
Honor Holly 3 Rs. 9,999  Black, White, Gold



Looking at the price of Honor 8 it will be a straight competitor to the Oneplus 3, and the Recently launched Moto Z play. Also in the offline market, they have to compete with Brands like Oppo, Vivo and Samsung. So it’s totally different approach of the honor aiming almost all types of consumer in India for the market share. I think the offline market will be changed if such devices are made available in an offline market.
