Honor Play 8A smartphone that was launched in China last year is now believed to be getting an upgraded version in the UK. The new variant is reportedly called Honor 8A 2020 and has been listed on a UK retail website Clove. From the information available on the website, the phone has almost the same specifications that were featured on Honor Play 8A last year. In the upgraded Honor 8A smartphone, however, we noticed a new rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that was not there in the previous version. The Honor 8A (2020) smartphone listed on Clove has a single 64GB storage variant. The phone has Blue and Black color options, and both the units are priced at EUR 130.
According to the retail website, Honor 8A 2020 runs EMUI 9.0, based on Android 9.0 Pie, and features 6.09-inch HD+ (720x1,560 pixels) LCD panel along with a water-drop notch. On the back panel, there's a fingerprint scanner next to the camera. Under the hood, the phone packs the octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765) SoC, coupled with 3GB of RAM. In terms of the cameras, the upgraded Honor 8A comes with the same features present on the older Honor Play 8A. The camera setup includes a single rear 13-megapixel shooter on the back panel while there's an 8-megapixel camera housed in the waterdrop notch on the front. The 3,020mAh battery also remains unchanged on the new phone. The memory capacity of the single 64GB storage variant can also be increased via a dedicated microSD card slot (up to 512GB).
