Inside is a 2.4GHz octacore processor and 6GB of RAM. Huawei says the 4,000mAh battery will last for two days. That's a long time for a phone today so we're eager to test that promise.
With the fingerprint sensor on the rear you can not only open the phone but swipe your finger over it to browse photos or bring up the notification panel.
Here are the two 12-megapixel camera lenses: One takes photos in color, while the other shoots only in black and white. There's a flash next door and another 8-megapixel camera around front.
The blue color is quite attractive and for a phone, a rather rare hue, as well.
The Honor 8 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, making it reasonably up to date.
On the bottom is the USB-C port.
The Honor 8 Pro is unlocked so you'll be able to use it with any compatible carrier. Available now for preorder in the UK and some European countries, it costs £475 or 549 euros, which converts to roughly $585 or AU$770, with US and Australian availability yet to be announced.
