The Honor family grows. Or maybe we should say the triplets. At the beginning of the year, the company launched the modest Honor Play 8A in China and a few months later it grew a fingerprint reader on its back and changed its name in Russia: there would be the Honor 8A Pro. The story does not end there, but the new Honor 8A is born, to be sure.
This new cheap mobile has a lot in common with its brothers. Its design and specifications are still adjusted, as is its price. It is almost identical to the Honor 8A Pro that we met at the beginning of the month, although now it is offered with more storage and RAM configurations.

The new entry range of Honor
As its name indicates – or rather, its number – the Honor 8A will be the natural successor of the previous Honor 7A. It has rained a lot since then, and the changes are evident on all fronts. To start, the screen, which is now 6 inches, with HD resolution, and is crowned with a notch in the form of a drop.
In said notch encloses an 8-megapixel front camera with aperture f / 2.0 that does the double function of allowing you to unlock the terminal with face recognition. The rear camera, on the other hand, is 13 megapixels, with aperture f / 1.8. They are the same megapixels of the previous generation, although the aperture has improved.
The processor, as it could not be otherwise, is in charge of MediaTek. It is an Helio P35 (eight cores up to 2.3GHz), which on this occasion are accompanied by an amount of memory available in two quantities: 2 or 3 GB of RAM. The Honor 8A Pro that was presented in Russia was only sold in the larger version, 3 GB. With internal memory, three-quarters of the same: 32 GB or 64 GB.
The Honor 8A keeps the fingerprint reader behind, where a monotonous Google Pixel design is now applied, although the separation is horizontal rather than vertical. As for the battery, it has a capacity of 3,020 mAh, without specifying any type of fast charge.
Versions, prices of Honor 8A
The Honor 8A is mentioned on the Global Honor page and appears there as available for sale in a handful of countries including Colombia, Mexico, the Czech Republic, Egypt, and Greece. The price is in all cases around 150 euros. In fact, you can find it on Amazon for that price, 150 euros, although it is not sold directly by Amazon.
As for colors and versions, they are four duotone colors: blue, red, black and gold. The versions are three in total: 2 GB + 32 GB, 3 GB + 32 GB and 3 GB + 64 GB. As soon as we have more specific information, we will update this entry.
