Who would’ve thought that you can create a device that boasts a 5.2 inch FHD 1920 x 1080 IPS display; an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz; Mali-T880MP4 GPU; 4 GB of RAM; up to 64 GB internal storage; dual 12 MP f/2.2 (monochrome and color) rear cameras; 8 MP f/2.4 selfie shooter; a 3000 mAh battery; USB Type-C; rear fingerprint sensor; and a glass and metal design all in a 145.5 x 71 x 7.5 mm, 153 g package? Huawei’s done just that in the Honor 8—a gorgeous yet compact smartphone with enough bells and whistles to make its dent in the upper mid-range category.

The only question left is will it be available locally? It’s already set to launch in Malaysia, so hopefully it makes its way to the Philippines soon.
