Honor teases upcoming model
Honor, which is a pretty ironic name for a company that’s a subsidiary of Huawei, arguably make the most value for money phones in the Malaysian market right now. The Honor 8X, which is priced at less than RM1000 is probably the most value for money phone out there. It has a 6.5″ display, a generous 128GB of storage and an already large 3750mAh battery. No seriously, 3750mAh is huge (The iPhone XS has a 2658mAh battery). But this article isn’t about the Honor 8X.
Honor recently released a teaser poster for their upcoming smartphone. The poster, which you can find below basically just a big C with a fully charged battery in the middle and lighting to make it look cool. The poster reads “4000 mAh.. #Packedwithpower” In a purple blue hue. With absolutely nothing else to go on, the biggest clue here is the big C brushstroke that’s being struck by lightning. With the model already teased last week, deductive reasoning will tell you that it’s the Honor 8C.
The Honor 8C is pretty much the Honor 8X’s less intelligent more energetic little brother. The kind that does just ok at school but excels at marathon running. You get the picture. It has a smaller 6.26″ display that pushed a lower HD+ resolution. Under the hood, it runs on a mid-range Octa-core Snapdragon 632 processor with 4GB of RAM. It comes in both 32GB and 64GB storage options.
In terms of its camera, it has a respectable 13MP + 2MP dual camera thats packed with features, with an 8MP front camera rounding it off.
This leads us to the biggest highlight of the phone, which is the size of the battery. It’s important to note that mAh is only an indicator of technical capacity. Phones with the highest mAh aren’t always the phones with the best battery life. Other factors such as the processor efficiency and how often you use your phone also come into play. High-end phones, which come with better screens tend to consume more battery as well. But the 8C isn’t a high-end phone, so 4000 mAh is really quite exciting. It is touted to last up to 2 days on a single charge (with average use, of course).
With Samsung’s M series launching real soon in Malaysia, It’ll be interesting to see how relevant the Honor 8C is going to be. I mean, almost everything is better on the M20 and with its price expected to be below RM 800 as well, which one of you out there is going to opt for the Honor 8C over any of the M series phones?
