Global smartphone brand HONOR recently launched a new Budget King smartphone in the Philippines – the HONOR 8C. It’s a new affordable entry while featuring solid specs such as a 4000 mAh battery, 13MP dual camera, and a powerful Snapdragon 632 processor, the first in the world for a budget phone with a very attractive price of P7,999.
Highlighting its impressive features, the HONOR 8C packs an octa-core Snapdragon 632 CPU which most of the competition lacks. It’s then paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM expandable up to 256GB through a dedicated MicroSD slot. The 4000 mAh battery capacity is rated with up to 2 days longevity, thanks to the efficient processor and display.
The 13MP dual camera on the back sits along the fingerprint sensor while there is an 8MP selfie shooter positioned on the notch (which can be removed) at the front. The extra space brought by the notch provides a wider all-screen display.
The HONOR 8C is the only budget phone to feature the sleek “Cat’s Eye” design on its Cat-Eye Blue variant. Using 3D printing and nano-level pattern design, it gives the phone an elegant and premium feel.
This power-packed phone is available in all retail stores nationwide. It is also exclusively available on HONOR’s official Shopee store, and will soon be available on Lazada for only P7,999.
