Honor Play 8A smartphone that was launched last year in China has garnered immense praise for its exceptional features. Now the company has decided to upgrade the device in the UK. The new version is called Honor 8A 2020 and has been listed on a UK retail website Clove. From the information available on the website, we can see the listed phone has almost similar specifications that were featured on Honor Play 8A last year. In the upgraded Honor 8A smartphone, however, we noticed a new rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that was not there in the previous version.
In case of the specifications, the dual-SIM (Nano) Honor 8A 2020 runs EMUI 9.0, based on Android 9.0 Pie, and flaunts 6.09-inch HD+ (720×1,560 pixels) LCD panel along with a waterdrop-style notch. On the back panel, there’s a fingerprint scanner, next to the camera. Under the hood, the phone packs the octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765) SoC, coupled with 3GB of RAM.
In terms of optics, the upgraded Honor 8A comes with the same features present on the older Honor Play 8A. The camera setup includes a single rear 13-megapixel shooter on the back panel while there’s an 8-megapixel camera housed in the waterdrop notch on the front.
The 3,020mAh battery also remains unchanged on the new phone. The memory capacity of the single 64GB storage variant can also be increased via a dedicated microSD card slot (up to 512GB). For connectivity, the Honor 8A 2020 has Bluetooth v4.2. The phone also supports Face Unlock.
