Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, has just brought its top smartphone to Asia as it launched the Honor 8 Pro in India.

The handset made its first appearance last April in Europe giving the Huawei P10 a run for its money by its own sister company.

Just a recap: The Honor 8 Pro is not just your average Android phone. It has a large 5.7-inch display with a resolution and pixel density of Quad HD and 515ppi. It’s powered by a home-baked Kirin 960 processor, same as the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus. It has 6GB of memory, a whopping 128GB of storage, and it runs Android 7.0 Nougat with, you know it, EMUI 5.1 on top.

It also boasts dual-rear cameras with twin 12-megapixel sensors, one with an RGB sensor and another monochrome to help capture more details and for dramatic shots. It skips the Leica certification, but has about the same features.

If you’re planning on getting one, the phone is priced at INR 29,990 (US$ 463). That’s significantly cheaper compared to its initial launch price of EUR 549 (US$ 585). Sale starts on July 10 at 6PM on Amazon India, but it’s exclusively available to Prime members on Prime Day.
