Huawei Unveils the Honor 8 Pro Flagship and the Honor 6C Mid-Ranger

Here’s yet another flagship smartphone from Huawei

The Honor 8 Pro is basically a rebranded Honor V9, which was launched two months ago in China. The Honor 6C is also a rebadged phone, known in China as the Honor Enjoy 6S. Huawei sure loves doing brand gymnastics with its products.
