Honor 8A Pro gets rebranded to Honor 8A Prime in Russia

Yordan, 31 March 2020

The Honor 8A Pro arrived in Russia almost a year ago, but today the company decided to relaunch the very same device under a new moniker - Honor 8A Prime. It is the very same Helio P35-powered device, but with a new color - Emerald Green.

Given the phone was a year old and was a budget device to begin with it's hardly a surprise that its internals are modest. The Mediatek chipset is coupled by 3 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, with a microSD slot for additional 512 GB. There is a single 13MP camera on the back, and an 8MP selfie shooter in a waterdrop notch.

The Honor 8A Prime keeps the 6.1” screen with HD+ resolution. Other highlights include a 3,020 mAh battery and Android Pie (yes, Pie) with EMUI 9.0 on top.

The Honor 8A Pro was launched at RUB13,990, which at that time was $215, but twelve months later is equal to $175. However, the Prime can be bought from the Honor Russia website for just RUB9,990 or around $125. All three colors - Black, Blue, Green - are readily available for purchase. There are also gifts for the first few people - a selfie stick, Honor Band 4 or Honor Sport Bluetooth earbuds.
