After the release, at the beginning of the year, of its View 20, Honor diversifies its ranges and formalized this Monday its new entry-level smartphone, the Honor 8A. This one comes to succeed the Honor 7A of last year and proposes a design with a fine notch in the upper part of the screen.
Decidedly, the fine notches seem to have the coast at smartphone manufacturers. Even on entry-level devices, we are seeing more and more smartphones incorporating a teardrop shaped notch on the top. After the Huawei Y7 2019, it is now the turn of Honor to officially announce its own device adopting this choice of design, the Honor 8A.
Presented officially on Monday by Honor, the Honor 8A is indeed endowed with a large screen of 6.09 inches displaying 1560 pixels by 720, for a resolution of 283 pixels per inch. The screen is also cut at the top by a fine notch, while the chin is still wide enough to integrate the logo of the Chinese brand. On the features side, there is a Mediatek Helio P35 chip, backed by 2 or 3 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage depending on the version. The smartphone also includes a fingerprint reader on the back, as well as a USB socket, a headphone output, support for dual-SIM and a microSD storage extension, and a 3020 mAh battery. The smartphone is offered under Android 9.0 Pie.
Only one camera on the back
For the photo, the manufacturer has given the Honor 8A a simple camera on the back of 13 megapixels, with a lens opening at f / 1.8. In front, it is an 8-megapixel sensor that is housed in the notch, allowing the unlocking by facial recognition.
The Honor 8A is already available from 159 euros for the 3/32 GB version. It is available in three colors: blue, black or gold.
