After Xiaomi, Lenovo and Samsung, it seems like it's Honor's turn to climb aboard the big screen bandwagon. The company has unveiled the Honor Note 8 smartphone with a huge 6.6-inch QHD display. Besides the large screen, the device also packs an octa-core Kirin 955 with 4GB of RAM. Further, users will have the option of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of storage. Besides this, it also sports a large 4500mAh battery.
Unlike its smaller brother, the Honor 8, the new phone is not equipped with a 12MP dual-rear camera setup. Instead, the Honor Note 8 has to make do with a single 13MP. However, it does retain the 8MP front camera found on its smaller sibling. Further, the device features a fingerprint scanner at the back and runs Android Marshmallow v6.0. Prices for the phone start at CNY 2,299 (approx. Rs. 23,000) and will be available in China from August 9.
The Xiaomi Mi Max, Samsung Galaxy J Max and the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro are the other phones with big screens that were recently launched. The Mi Max and the J Max sport 6.44-inch Full HD and 7-inch WXGA displays respectively, while the Phab 2 Pro is the only other device to feature a QHD display measuring 6.4-inches in size. Further, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is also the first phone to feature Google’s augmented reality system, Project Tango.
