Huawei Honor V8 passes TENAA certification with dual camera

A few days back Huawei was teasing a new smartphone called the Honor V8 that was expected to have a dual camera configuration. At the time all Huawei offered in details was a few dark teaser images showing off what appears to be that dual camera configuration. The smartphone has now crossed TENAA in China for its required certifications and along with that testing come details on the device.

Two versions of the Honor V8 are expected with a premium version carrying a 5.7-inch screen with 2K resolution and a Kirin 955 under the hood. This is the version that is on TENAA right now with the screen resolution called out as 2560 x 1440 with 16 million colors. The smartphone weighs 170g and measures 157 x 77.60 x 7.75 mm.

It supports GSM, CDMA, TD-SCDMA, TD-LT, LTE FDD, WCDMA, and CDMA 2000 networks. The battery is a 3400 mAh unit and the processor runs at 2.5GHz. Internal storage is 64GB with 4GB of RAM. Right out of the box, the operating system is Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Internal storage can be expanded via a memory card slot supporting up to 128GB cards.

Huawei also fits the smartphone with Bluetooth and IR support. While the dual camera seems to be a big feature of the phone, there are no details on the camera at TENAA. The standard version of the Honor V8 will pack a 5.7-inch 1080p screen and a Kirin 950 processor. The official press event for these devices is May 10. The big focus of the teaser we saw a few days back was a dual lens camera that looked like the number 8. The images we see on TENAA don't appear to have that design around the camera.
