Huawei has sent out invites for the official unveiling of the Honor 8C, which will happen on October 11. Unofficially, TENAA has already published its specs. The phone will be a followup to the Honor 7C, which was released in May. You can also look at it as a smaller and more affordable alternative to the Honor 8X (which goes on sale in Europe on October 11).
The screen of the Honor 8C is a 6.28” LCD with 720 x 1,520px resolution. The taller aspect ratio and extra 0.28” of diagonal are due to the adoption of a notch.
The chipset may be the Snapdragon 450 of the 7C, it definitely isn’t the Snapdragon 710 of the 8X. The good news is that the base RAM capacity increased to 4GB of RAM while storage comes in either 32GB or 64GB.
The camera department boasts a 13+2MP dual camera on the rear and an 8MP selfie. That sounds pretty much the same as the camera on the Honor 7C (and not as impressive as the 8X).
The Honor 8C packs a larger battery than both of its siblings – 3,900mAh. That’s a solid 900mAh upgrade over the 7C and even the larger 8X is 150mAh short. Don’t hold your breath for fast charging (despite the “Charging up” tagline) these models typically come with 10W chargers.
When the 7C launched four months ago it cost $137/€115 for the base model so we’re probably looking at similar pricing for the Honor 8C.
