Metal and glass Honor 8 officially launched in Malaysia from RM1699 for 4GB RAM/32GB storage version


Honor Malaysia officially launched their latest flagship today with the Honor 8. Featuring a new 15-layer glass back and front with a slim and thin metal frame body, the smartphone takes a step upward past its entry-level to midrange beginnings while keeping very much in tune with its roots.
