Huawei sub-brand Honor has released a new smartphone in the UK. This isn't a high-end device like the Honor 20 that should be launching imminently. Instead, the Honor 8S is a very cheap basic smartphone, that will set you back only £99.99 at Amazon, SIM-free and unlocked of course.
For that amount of cash, you get a 5.71-inch 720x1520 LCD touchscreen, the MediaTek Helio A22 SoC at the helm, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 13 MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, a 5 MP selfie snapper, and a 3,020 mAh battery. It runs Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9 lite on top.
If you're thinking of going with something a bit more high-end, perhaps one of the deals Honor has prepared may interest you. First off - in light of the impending launch of its successor, the Honor 10 can now be had for just £249, £150 less than when it launched (and than what the Honor 20 is going to cost).
Looks like they still don't get it! Won't pick it up even if is even free!
Let's hope that the Honor 8S does better than it's predecessors in the UK. The Honor 8 was left on Android 7 with no sign of updates, and the Honor 8 PRO was left on Android 8 and no updates. I'll never touch Honor phones again for that sole reason.
Discounting the old ones to make room for the new ones and think its a good price
