As Huawei prepares to officially unveil its latest Honor V8 on May 10, the handset's dual rear cameras and metal build design have been revealed in live images online.
The company has been touting the handset as being equipped with dual 12 MP rear cameras that feature dual-tone LED flash and Laser auto focus. It also confirmed that the handset's cameras will not bear the previously rumored Leica branding which is found on Huawei P9's and P9 Plus' pair of cameras.
The Honor V8 handset will also come with an 8 MP front camera which should be perfect for capturing selfie images and for video chatting.
Huawei teased the launching event of the Honor V8 on its website where it showed a pair of cameras and the launch date as May 10. With the latest images seen online, the handset's dual rear cameras are once again placed under the spotlight.
Revealed on My Drivers, the first leaked image gave a close-up view of the handset's dual rear-camera setup which is purported to feature dynamic 360-degree photo capture support. It also showed the fingerprint sensor on the same rear part of the handset.
The second leaked image shows the full back part of the handset which seemed to bear the Honor branding at the bottom. It also seemed like the upcoming Honor V8 will sport a fully metal build.
Other rumored specs of Honor V8 include a 5.7-inch Quad HD 2.5D curved glass display with pixel resolution of 2,560 x 1,440; 4 GB RAM; a Kirin 950 chipset; Mali T880 GPU; 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage; expandable storage of up to 128 GB through the handset's microSD slot; dual SIM; fast charging 3,400 mAh battery; a slew of connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C; infrared sensor; and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI.
Huawei's market share in China is now at 24.3 percent. In the final quarter of 2015, the Chinese OEM gained 15.2 percent of the market share and left Xiaomi and Apple trailing behind with their market share reaching 14.8 and 13.1 percent respectively.
Incidentally, Xiaomi is also having a launching event on May 10 where it is expected to officially announce the Mi Max and its latest MIUI 8. While the Mi Max will also have a fingerprint sensor on the rear, its 16 MP rear camera is not exactly the dual version found in Honor V8.
