The release of the Honor 80 GT has been confirmed for December 26, and we also anticipate the launch of a tablet. Today, the company announced that the name would be Honor V8 Pro, just like the rumours suggested, and the company page on Weibo showed both devices in their full size.
The smartphone was also part of an announcement regarding gaming that took place in China. This announcement revealed that the smartphone will be powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and will have a dedicated display chip that will enable an ultra-fast but efficient refresh rate.
After the Magic Vs foldable, which was released earlier this year, the Honor 80 GT will be the only other model produced by the company to utilise the Qualcomm chipset.
From the images, we can deduce that the front panel of the phone will be an OLED display that is completely flat, with just a tiny punch hole for the front-facing camera. There are rumors that Honor is getting ready to release the Honor 80 GT at a price that will be very competitive with other phones on the market, which may make the phone very desirable among mobile gamers.
Regarding the tablet, we do not have a lot of information. We can see three pogo pins on the back of the tablet, which indicates that it will most likely support a cover keyboard in addition to the stylus that has already been confirmed.
There are currently only six days left until the official launch, and we anticipate that similar teasers will provide us with additional information. To this day, we only have a rough estimate of when the Magic Vs will be available across the world, and all we can do is cross our fingers and hope that the Honor 80 GT will also be exported from China.
