Speaking of battery, the HONOR 8C may be ultrathin, but it never goes slim in terms of capacity. With a thickness of 7.98mm, one of the thinnest smartphones in the entry level category houses a massive 4000mAh battery.

Full View Display

Sporting a 6.26-inch FullView display with high-definition screen resolution, the HONOR 8C does not only provide users with a crisp and vibrant view of content on their phone, but also takes care of their eye's health. The HONOR 8C features a new generation eye comfort mode, certified by TUV Rheinland, which reduces blue light radiation emitted by the screen to protect the user's eyes and prevent eye strain, especially in lowlight conditions.

The HONOR 8C carries a dual-camera system on the back. But going beyond the megapixel count of 13MP+2MP, a key strength of the smartphone's imaging prowess relies on artificial intelligence (AI).

Coupled with an aperture of F1.8, HONOR 8C's camera ensures that users will capture remarkable photos regardless day or night. Anticipating users will shoot tons of images, including selfies with the 8-megapixel front camera, HONOR has equipped the 8C with 32GB built-in storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD.

Face Unlock and DND

Extending intelligence from the imaging realm to security, the HONOR 8C also features a smarter face unlock system. Equipped with the new LCD Light Compensation feature, the HONOR 8C supports face unlock in lowlight scenarios. The HONOR 8C also intelligently stops notifications, alerts, and calls from interrupting your game when you turn on the Do Not Disturb (DND) mode.
