Honor’s flagship smartphone is nearly here, and it packs an almighty punch in a number of areas! Not only is it equipped with Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 8 gen 2 chipset, but it also includes a fantastic camera setup (at the time of printing, ranked number 2 on DXOMark), a huge 5,100mAh battery with fast charging, and a super-bright 6.81-inch best-on-class display with 2160Hz PWM dimming, and a peak brightness of 1,800 nits – absolutely insane!

The phone (available in green or black and with 12GB of RAM and 512GB storage) will be available to purchase from Honor’s own website, where early subscribers can get a fantastic £80 voucher to use against a purchase (bringing the price down to £869), as well. asThree, Amazon, Argos, Very, and Curry’s.

I’ve got one to test and have posted some photos taken with the retail-ready version of the phone. I will have a full review published later, as I never rush to publish a review – especially when the device was previously not running fully stable firmware.

Below you can see a summary of the key features, as written by Honor in its press release. You can also see more of the product from its original launch earlier this year.
