Amazon teases Honor 8 Pro launch date in India

Just as the name suggests, it's an upgraded version of Honor 8 launched in India in July past year. However, the pricing details of the Honor 8 Pro has not been revealed by the company yet but looking at the specifications we can expect this smartphone's price will fall in high mid-range budget.

And apart from announcing the Honor 9 in Berlin today the company will also be revealing the European and global pricing and availability of the device as well. It will be exclusively sold on Amazon. The Honor 9 plans to emulate the success of its predecessor and with that, it sports a 5.15-inch fullHD LTPS IPS display and is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipset, while graphics are handled by the Mali-G71 MP8 GPU. It comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which is further expandable via microSD card. The smartphone also features an IR Blaster that can be used as a remote to control third-party electronics & appliances like set-top boxes, audio consoles, TVs, fans, air conditioners or DVD players.

The Honor 8 Pro, like the Honor 8, has two cameras on the rear - dual 12-megapixel Sony IMX286 with dual-LED (dual tone) flash - wherein one takes monochrome shots the other takes photos in colour (RGB). At front, there is an 8-megapixel sensor for taking selfies as well. The front camera is capable of recording 1080p Full-HD videos at 60fps.
