Honor 80 GT design and chipset revealed, Honor V8 Pro also appears
Honor 80 GT has been confirmed to arrive on December 26, and we expect to see a tablet as well. Today, the company revealed that the name would be Honor V8 Pro, just as rumors suggested, and both devices were shown full size on the company’s Weibo page.
The smartphone was also part of a gaming announcement in China, revealing that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and have a separate display chip for ultra-sharp refresh rate.
The Honor 80 GT will be just the second model from the company to run on the Qualcomm chipset, the first being the foldable Magic Vs, introduced earlier this year. Since it will be sold as a gaming powerhouse, it’s also the official device of a Chinese gaming product with 3D animations – that’s how powerful the GT will be.
We can see from the renders that the device will have a flat OLED on the front with a small punch-hole for a single selfie camera. It is rumored that Honor is preparing to launch the 80 GT at a very competitive price which could make the phone very desirable among mobile gamers.

Speaking of the tablet, we don’t know as much. We can see three pogo pins on the back, which means the tablet will likely support a cover keyboard and the already confirmed stylus. We can also wonder if these accessories will be sold as a bundle or if the customer must buy them separately.
There are six days left until the official launch, and we hope to hear more from similar teasers. Honor isn’t big on launching flagship smartphones on the international stage. So far, we only have a vague timeline for Magic Vs to arrive globally, and we can only hope that the Honor 80 GT will make it outside of China as well.
