Huawei's Honor 8 Pro is the latest flagship smartphone announced in Europe

Flip both phones over and you'll notice the Honor 8's glossy finish has been replaced with a matte metal surfacing on the Pro. Encased in an all-metal body with rounded corners - the design is distinctly iPhone-esqe. But since only a few users of Honor devices will be considered, you might want to hurry up and get yourself enlisted to the program as early as possible.

Where they differ is size: the Honor 8 Pro is bigger than the Honor 8 by virtue of the increased screen size - you're getting an extra half-inch of display.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the handset comes with a 5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixel resolution, a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage. A dedicated monochrome sensor at the back should improve your moody black-and-white shots, although I've not had enough time with the Honor 8 Pro to experiment a great deal. While none of the dual camera smartphones from Honor have a camera bump, the Honor 6C measuring 7.6mm thickness has a protruding rear camera. For example, if Facebook is opened at around 8am every day, the system will load the app in the background in advance, cutting down app load times significantly. It comes with fingerprint scanner on its back side.

When you look at the front of the phone, it just looks like a slightly bigger Honor 8, and that is not a bad thing at all. That's their marketing slogan, at least. A 3,020 mAh battery keeps the lights on, and there's a hybrid dual-SIM/microSD card slot in tow. You know, like Brooklyn Beckham (the company's brand ambassador). For selfies, it comes with a 8 Megapixel front camera.

Honor president George Zhao said: "This handset is the most impressive performing Honor smartphone to date, redefining the large-screen category by wrapping its outstanding features inside an ultra-thin design".

Created to meet the ambitious and fast-paced lifestyles of today's digital generation, the new device has been built to deliver the best performance for gaming, streaming and photography. It's good a see a brand trying to offer important flagship features at an affordable price.

The users of the mentioned European countries will be able to set their hands on a Honor 8 Pro- UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. Encased in a metallic shell, the phone attempts to pack in high-end specs for a mid-range price.

Unlike the Honor V8 that launched in China a year ago, the Honor 8 Pro is available to pre-order in the United Kingdom for £474.99 in Navy Blue directly from today with an Honor tripod and a 128GB SanDisk memory card thrown in.
