Huawei, this time, to go for something new. And as of Huawei’s past traditions, the company has always been doing different experiments over the years. Company's engineering is one of the best smartphone engineerings that shocked the smartphone world with its worth admiring thinking. This is why, Huawei perhaps, has become world’ most innovative smartphone brand now. So there they are, Huawei surprises the smartphone world with its first ever Note flagship. This is the beginning of new era from world’s most favorite smartphone vendor. Huawei Honor Note 8 is on air with a bulk of incredible specs and as of usual decent price in Pakistan tags.
Don’t forget Huawei Honor 8 and Huawei Honor V8 which recently made entry into the smartphone world. Perhaps this is why Huawei has chosen digit 8 for their very first Note flagship as well. Another example of going for the same digit comes out of the Samsung’s platform where Samsung skipped number 6 in their new Samsung Galaxy Note flagship. And despite going for Samsung Galaxy Note 6, the company has launched Galaxy Note7 instead. The idea might be to go for the same digit in Samsung’s master Galaxy S series smartphones and the same digit for Note flagship as well.
And we do think that Huawei is copying the same concept as well. But it’s up to company’s think tanks that got better thinking and concept then anybody else. Huawei Note 8 is a unique device that has been crafted for all those internet crazy guys who are an addict to super fast internet with no lagging or hanging. Its 4th generation’s internet technology is one of the best connectivity at present. The handset supports a mighty range of LTE bands that have never been accessible previously, so web surfing right now is agiler and more fluent now.
Starting from the design and outlook perspective, well, Huawei has done remarkably well on this side. This perhaps the biggest Note on the face of Note planet. In fact, we don’t see any smartphone vendor manufacturing such a huge Note to date. Having been crafted to 178.8 x 90.9 x 7.2 mm as overall, 6.6 inches screen size is just like a monstrous device. Don’t you think so? Look more alike a tablet. But surprisingly it’s a Note not a tablet at all. Anyhow, guys, despite the fact that it’s a large device yet you are going to have in hands a tremendously slim (7.2 mm) device, which is awesome.
Despite all this, the handset weighs to incredibly high weight having a massive 219 g (7.72 oz) weight as overall which is to some, a huge weight. But you got to make it sure that despite that fact that handset is shockingly huge, it also comes with an immersive 4500mAH battery as well. So such a weight doesn’t matter at all. Some may be getting a bad impression as well. Anyhow, users will have a brand that also supports Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by) as well which is a great deal.
Huawei has unveiled this newcomer having Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors which though against the traditions of Huawei but it’s a nice way to start with. An immaculate up to 74.6% screen-to-body ratio and 443 ppi pixel density is impressive. Super AMOLED display is embroidered with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution which is another impressive move by the company. Awesome!
Huawei has uploaded EMUI 4.1 along with recent most Android OS, v6.0.1 (Marshmallow) in this new device so users might get the best compilation by the company to date. As of Huawei P9 and P9 plus, company has engraved quite nicely the HiSilicon Kirin 955 chipset along with Quad-core 2.5 GHz Cortex-A72 & Quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 processing panels. So right now nobody would be saying there are any speed and smoothness concerns. You got the best and tested chip which leaves to Huawei’s valued users an impressive impression. GPU gets finalized as Mali-T880 MP4. Remarkable!
Talking of the memory concerns, well, Huawei has provided its users a massive variety on the side of memory concerns. Despite, having a huge microSD support up to 256 GB (uses SIM 2 slot) you got in hands three flavors having three different memory options. Like, you got one having 32 internal storage device, the second one gets huge 64 GB, and the third one is monstrous on the side of memory, it offers incredible 128GB memory which is more than what someone can anticipate. 4 GB RAM goes one on one with all the variants so nothing change on the physical memory at all.
Well, we did love Huawei doing different experiments. As of afore-described features of the newcomer, Camera department of new Note 8 also gets impressive increments, a positive attitude. Featuring an immersive camera panel having optical image stabilization is something incredible for Huawei users around the world. A 13 MP rear unit having f/2.0 aperture is a delightful thing to describe, autofocus capability, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, HDR, panorama features and videos making at 2160p@30fps is your deemed choice ever. A 5 MP, f/2.0, 1080p unit has also been embedded for selfie lovers.
Device is packed with DTS sound capability with a mighty range fo WIFI networks (802.11 a/b/g/n/as, dual-band, WiFi Direct, hotspot), Bluetooth v4.2, A2DP, EDR, LE, FM radio, USB Type-C 1.0 reversible connector, USB On-The-Go, Fingerprint Sensor White, Gold and Gray colors and things beyond your expectations.
