In a post tipped on the Chinese social network Weibo, Honor, a subsidiary manufacturer of Huawei, announced the launch of its first smartphone of the year, Honor 8A, successor to Honor 7A, which hit the market in April last year.
The poster released by the company indicates some characteristics of the device, although it did not reveal any major information related to the smartphone.
The Honor 8A is expected to arrive with a 6.09-inch screen and drop-shaped notch, similar to the OnePlus 6T, which ensures a greater use of the screen. The device will be powered by an octa-core processor that is expected to be Kirin 710, according to rumours and sources until now.
Through the poster, it is revealed that the device’s internal storage space will be 64 GB and will have dual stereo setup speakers, which would make the sound experience from the device more immersive.
