After the unofficial unveiling on TENAA, Honor officially announced their take on the Huawei P9, the Honor 8. It shares some design elements – the dual camera module and all metal build - but not the price; it will start from only CNY 1,999 (~RM 1196).

The front and back glass encased honor 8 has apparently appeared and been priced at online retailer oppomart. The oppomart listing reveals tech specs and a price tag of $399 (RM1592). Adding on 6% GST raises this to about RM1687 but this is by no means the confirmed Malaysia pricing.
Tech specs were more or less confirmed as below:
- Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor
- 3GB / 4GB RAM
- 32GB / 64GB storage
- 5.2-inch display FHD, 2560 x 1440 pixels (CABC and DRAM - Display RAM)

Right after seeing the teaser on the upcoming Honor 8 smartphone, TENAA has supplied us a first looks of the upcoming dual-camera smartphone from the China brand. The tagline that is being used, “Beauty Out of the Ordinary”, fits nicely with the design that is seen in the leak.

It appears that honor could be coming out with a new device for Europe on 20 June 2016 as invited for an online reveal have been sent out. We expect this to be the honor 8 which earlier rumours have indicated that it will be "more beautiful" than the honor V8 but still packing in a dual rear camera setup. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details but Malaysia is expected to get that device sometime in Q3 2016, so do take this with a pinch of salt.

As you already know, the Huawei P9 and P9 Lite is coming soon to Malaysia next week (same goes to P9 Plus, but the release date is unknown), and the newly announced Honor V8 in China. But Huawei isn't done with their smartphone lineup yet, because they are planning to release the Honor 8 later this year, that is at least according to analyst Pan Jiutang from China.
