Honor V8 is official: a P9 Plus at half the price?

Honor, a Huawei subsidiary, has just launched a new device similar to one of Huawei's latest flagships, but at half the price. The Honor V8, available for purchase in China from May 17, features a similar design, dual rear-camera setup, and internal specifications as the Huawei P9 Plus.

  • 8 MP front-facing camera

    I'd definitely go for the QHD version instead of the P9 especially if the camera is the same... it seems like a better device minus the Leica badge.
    I respect Huawei choice to use a HD screen in their flagship but I'd rather a QHD screen and sacrifice battery life....
