Under the hood, the Honor 8C comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 632 SoC that’s coupled with 4 GB RAM. The smartphone boots up to EMUI 8.2 out-of-the-box which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The 8C is offered in two storage options – 32 GB and 64 GB. However, you also have the option to expand the storage up to 256 GB via microSD. Oh, and yes, the 8C comes with a dedicated slot for microSD card, which means you can insert two SIM cards and a microSD card in the phone at the same time.

The photography department on the Honor 8C is handled by dual cameras at the back and a single camera on the front. The dual camera setup at the back is a combination of one 13 MP and one 2 MP camera. And on the front, you get an 8 MP single camera for selfies and video calls. As is the case with other Honor smartphones, the 8C also comes with some AI-based camera features.

The Honor 8C comes in four colors – Aurora Blue, Midnight Black, Platinum Gold, and Nebula Purple. It also ships with a huge 4000 mAh battery which is one of its biggest highlights.
