Honor 8A Pro launched with HD+ display, Android Pie, and Helio P35 SoC

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has already been quite prolific this year with frequent new launches at regular intervals. While it has led to an increase in Honor’s smartphone repertoire there is, however, no stopping the company from launching yet another smartphone.

The latest offering from Honor is called the Honor 8A Pro which has seen the light in Russia. The new smartphone is budget oriented and marked by the presence of a tear-drop notch, HD+ display, 3020mAh battery, and Android Pie based EMUI 9.0. The Honor 8A Pro is, in fact, an offshoot of Honor 8A Play which was launched in China early this year.


If the spec sheet is looked into, the Honor 8A Pro comes across as a low mid-range device with humble specifications. It flaunts a 6.09-inch IPS HD+ (720x1560p) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a tear-drop notch up front.

Driving the Honor 8A Pro is an octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 SoC with four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. PowerVR GE8320 GPU, 3GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage lend a helping hand to the processor in performance. The storage is further expandable up to 512GB by using a microSD card.

The handset features a mono camera module on both sides. It mounts a 13MP primary camera on the back with an LED flash and f/1.8 aperture. For the selfie and video calling purpose, there is an 8MP shooter on the front, buried in the notch.

On the software side of things, the Honor 8A Pro boots Android 9 Pie out of the box, underneath EMUI 9.0 skin. A 3,020mAh battery keeps the entire things ticking. On the connectivity front, the Honor 8A Pro supports 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, Glonas, and micro USB 2.0 Port.

The Honor 8A Pro is already up for sale via Tmall in Russia with a price tag of RUB13,990 (Approx. INR14,700). But for today only the smartphone is available on a discounted price of RUB10,912 (Approx. INR11,500). The phone comes in two color options:Black and Blue.

All said and done, but so far, there is no word regarding when the Honor 8A Pro will land in India, or the international markets for that matter.
