Huawei Honor 8 to Have Watermark Feature on Photos

The smartphone industry is ever evolving, with manufacturers constantly introducing new features to impress consumers and gain an upper hand on competitors. One of these features that has successfully gained the attention of consumers is the inclusion of watermarks on pictures taken by the smartphone’s camera.

Many flagship models have included this function as part of the long list of features offered by the devices. The photos taken on the Xiaomi Mi 6 contains a watermark with the inscription “Shot on Mi 6”. Now, Huawei has decided to jump on the bandwagon by making this feature available on the Honor 8 smartphone.

According to an announcement made by Huawei, the company would begin pushing a new firmware version via OTA which will make the function available to Honor 8 users. Following the current trend, the watermark is most likely to appear at the bottom corner of pictures taken by the device.

The Honor 8 was made its entry into the smartphone market in July 2016 and was widely praised for its impressive list of specifications, which includes sporting a 5.2-inch Full HD resolution display. The smartphone is powered by Huawei’s very own Kirin 950 chipset and has three different memory combinations for users to choose from – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 64 GB storage. The device also has a 12MP dual rear camera which will enable users to utilize the soon to be added watermark function.

In terms of the battery, the Honour 8 also houses a 3,000mAh battery that has become a staple in most mid-range smartphones today. The device supports 9V2A fast charging and an abundant supply of power-saving software tricks. According to experts and analysts, there is also a high possibility that Huawei will be making this feature readily available for its upcoming devices, namely the Honor 9 and V9.

Huawei Honor 8 Hong Kong: A Mid-Range Phone with Great Specs

Huawei is one of the leading smarphone brands in the world, manufacturing smartphones that cater to different users. When it comes to innovation, they are always dedicated to pushing their boundaries; as a result, they have created top-of-the-line handsets like the Huawei Honor 8 which hosts exciting features and powerful specifications.

Impressive Design

The Honor 8’s exterior combines elegant design and expert craftmanship, making it a brilliant phone for any smartphone users. Its 2.5D glass finish on the front and back further enhances the visual appeal of this elegant Huawei smartphone. Not only is it elegant but also has ergonomic design elements, providing a nice feel in the hand. In terms of dimensions, the Honor 8 is 7.5mm thick with no elements protruding on its back, making it more compact. It also has 5.2-inch display that offers decent color reproduction, providing well-saturated colors, visible blacks, and nice viewing angles.

Easy to Unlock

Huawei integrated its finest fingerprint technology into the Honor 8, allowing you to quickly unlock your device while keeping it secure. The Honor 8 boasts an unlocking speed of 0.4 seconds, which is a rare feature in its price segment. Aside from that, it can further read your fingerprint over time since the scanner is equipped with an auto-learning capability. In addition, the fingerprint scanner is useful for NFC tag read/write, making P2P transfers, and HCE-based mobile payments.

Powerful Processor

The Honor 8 runs on the powerful Kirin 950 chip with 8 cores, which is more than sufficient enough to run heavy apps and games. You will also not experience any lags or slowdowns, which can ruin the users’ experience. To ensure a smooth performance when multitasking between tabs or applications, the Honor 8 houses a 4 GB of RAM for a seamless and fluid navigation. Moreover, the hardware comes with a quick, smart-file processing system that further enhances the seamless performance of the response time and the battery life.

Remarkable Software and Battery Life

In terms of operating software (OS), Huawei integrated the EMUI 4.1 into the Honor 8, which works similarly to the Android 6 Marshmallow. This OS offers power-saving features like shutting down lagging apps that causes battery drain. In terms of battery life, the Honor 8 delivers well as it could stretch out its 3000-mAh battery to two days with moderate usage.

Captures Remarkable Images

With the Honor 8’s dual 12-MP sensors, one sensor snaps images in color and the other captures photos in monochrome. Unlike the Huawei P9, the Honor 8’s sensors don’t come with the Leica branding but they offer good color reproduction, well-detailed images, and impressive low-light performance. All in all, the Honor 8’s dual camera setup on the back produces images of above average quality and high-quality low-light photos. Meanwhile, its 8-MP front-facing camera provides good selfies which users find mostly flattering.
