Honor has brought its latest Android tablet to Europe, unveiling it as the Tablet 8 as part of its Chinese hardware launch event in July. Now called the Pad 8, the device still measures 278.5 x 174.1 x 6.9mm and weighs 520g, with a glass front, aluminum frame and aluminum back. Surprisingly, the Pad 8 supports stylus input as well as a detachable keyboard.
Additionally, Honor equips the tablet with a 12-inch and 2K (2000 x 1200) display with an 87% screen-to-body ratio and 5:3 aspect ratio. For reference, the display relies on IPS technology and offers a 60Hz refresh rate unlike the Honor 70. Apart from that, the Honor Pad 8 uses a 6nm chipset with Snapdragon 680 4G, eight CPU cores and Adreno 610 GPU. Incidentally, Honor pairs the mid-range chipset with a 7,250mAh battery that supports 22.5W wired charging via the device’s USB Type-C port. In addition, the Honor Pad 8 features dual 5MP cameras that can record videos up to 1080p at 30 FPS.
Like the Honor 70, the Pad 8 will launch in Europe with Magic UI 5.1 based on Android 12. According to Honor, pre-orders will begin today, but the tablet will only be available in the “Blue Hour” color. And Honor sells two additional color variants in China. Honor says it will confirm pricing after its IFA 2022 keynote. It is likely that the company will announce which memory configurations the Pad 8 will be available in as well. Honor currently offers the Pad 8 with 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Honor has since confirmed that the Pad 8 will cost €349.90 in the Eurozone. For some reason, the company decided to only offer a tablet with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
