Huawei has just launched its flagship Honor 8 Pro smartphone in India. The new dual-camera smartphone from the company packs a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display running on the company's own octa-core Kirin 960 processor with 6GB RAM and massive 128GB of internal storage.

As with most new Huawei flagships, the Honor 8 Pro comes with dual-rear cameras. In this case, there are two 12MP cameras at the back of the phone, one with a monochrome sensor and another with an RGB sensor. In the front, you get an 8MP selfie camera with a wide-angle lens. All this is packed in a 6.97mm thin metal shell along with a 4000 mAh battery which supports fast charging. On the software front, Android 7.0 Nougat runs the show with EMUI 5.1 on top.

What's more? We also get to see the whimsical side of the company, as the box of the Honor 8 Pro transforms into a VR headset. Pretty neat, right?
