Huawei Honor 8S 2020 specifications

Huawei Honor 8S 2020 comes in three colors options namely Black, Brown, and Blue. The phone comes with 64GB of internal storage and has 3GB of RAM. The Honor 8S 2020 is powered by Android 9.0 (Pie); EMUI 9 and does have support for Google Play Services. Android 9.0 (Pie) is quite out of date by 2020 standards; especially at the price point of Honor 8S 2020 in Kenya. But moving on. Honor 8S 2020 has a main 13 MP (Single) and a 5 MP, f/2.2 selfie camera. Again, not the best. The phone is powered by a Quad-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and has a rather low capacity 3020 mAh battery.

Dual-Texture Body

Huawei Honor 8S 2020 has a Fashionable dual-texture phone body. It comes in color black, brown or blue. Besides being a communication device, this phone is also a piece of art. It is rather compact at 147.1 x 70.8 x 8.5 mm in dimensions and quite light at just 146 grams. The body is of course made out of Glass front, plastic back, and a plastic frame. We are talking about a Dual SIM smartphone with a dedicated slot for an SD card.

Honor 8S colors

All-Screen 5.71″ display

Huawei Honor 8S 2020 comes with a 5.71 inches, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. This is why I say it is a compact smartphone phone. By 2020 standards a 5.7 inches display this surely will feel like a minute (exaggeration) display screen. But all that boils down to personal preference at the end of the day. Its resolution is 720 x 1520 pixels, it has a ~295 PPI density and supports 16M colors.

Quad-Core Processor

Huawei Honor 8S is powered by the MT6761 high-frequency quad-core processor, clocked at up to 2.0GHz. It is a decent processor for this budget phone. It also is decent in ensuring ultimate power-saving performance since the 8S 2020 has but a small 3020 mAh battery. That extra boost is required. But do not get me wrong, EMUI’s intelligent power-saving capabilities make it easy to go a whole day’s usage without requiring a recharge. EMUI is an Android-based custom user interface developed by Huawei for its mobile devices. A re-branded version, Magic UI, is pre-installed on Huawei’s Honor devices. Moreover, Huawei Honor 8S runs Android 9.0 (Pie)with Google Play Services included and it has 64GB of internal storage and 3GB RAM.


13MP Wide Aperture Camera
