GAMERS who were on a quest for a phone that has enough juice to meet their gaming needs may now collectively rejoice.
The all-new Honor 8 Pro from Huawei, may be just the answer to all your prayers.
With a cutting-edge processing power, long lasting battery life, 5.7-inch Quad HD display and a dual-lens camera, packed in a thin 6.97mm body, the phone is designed to meet the performance needs of today’s power users and gamers, packed with industry-leading hardware and software that deliver extreme speed.
It boasts the Kirin 960 chipset that features eight processor cores – four high-performance Cortex A73 cores clocked to 2.4GHz and four low-power Cortex A53 cores clocked to 1.8Ghz – that improve single-core and multi-core performance by 10 percent and 18 percent respectively.
With support for the cutting-edge Vulkan graphics and compute API (application programming interface) and boosted graphic performance up to 400 percent, the Honor 8 Pro can run the most demanding games at high frame rates with minimal lag and dropped frames, even in 3D mode.
Its new EMUI 5.1 system leverages machine learning to learn from your behaviour and habits to minimise lag and ensure applications and files load smoothly.
The Honor 8 Pro also features quad HD display boasting the highest levels of colour accuracy and detail, with performance is said nearing the Hollywood cinema standard.
As if that it is not enough, the 8 Pro comes VR-ready, with a bundled cardboard viewer and pre-installed Jaunt VR app containing a wealth of video content. Users will also be able to dive into the exhilarating world of Galaxy on Fire 3, the first 3D game running on the Vulkan interface.
Other than gaming capabilities, the Honor 8 also offers a 12-megapixel dual-lens camera.
The two lenses work in tandem to always deliver the perfect shot: the monochrome lens captures a black-and-white image with incredible depth of detail while the RGB lens ensure faithful and vivid colour reproduction – and sophisticated software brings the best of two worlds together.
The camera’s wide aperture range (f/0.95–f/16) delivers DSLR-like depth of field effects for both photo and video shooting.
The phone is now available at RM1,999.
