Honor 8A press renders leak online ahead of January 8 launch

Huawei sub-brand Honor is all set to launch the Honor 8A next week on January 8. And, thanks to the phone’s appearance on Chinese certification authority TENAA’s website, there’s little we don’t know about this phone. The TENAA listing of Honor 8A revealed its design as well as specifications. But, just a couple of days ahead of its launch, the press renders of Honor 8A have leaked online which give us a clearer look at it.


The press renders (attached above and below) of the Honor 8A that have leaked online reveal that the smartphone will sport a display with a waterdrop-shaped notch. However, despite of coming with a notch, the Honor 8A does have a large chin with Honor branding on it.

The notch is home to the front camera, and above it is the earpiece. Round the back, you see a single camera in the top-left corner with text below which reveals that this is a 13 MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture. Below that text is the LED flash.


The renders also reveal that the Honor 8A has a back with a two-tone finish. This could either be a glass or plastic back instead of metal. Well, the design of the Honor 8A revealed through these press renders is in line with its images leaked through TENAA’s website.

The Honor 8A is said to be powered by MediaTek’s Helio P35 SoC, and, according to the TENAA listing, it will be paired with 3 or 4 GB RAM. The 3 GB RAM variant will probably come with 32 GB of internal storage whereas the 4 GB RAM variant will come with 64 GB of internal storage.
