It accepts two SIM card, and boots the latest Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 on top. Honor said it would be adding more features such as the ability to detect male or female and an exclusive bike mode as well with the future OTA updates.

Connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and a micro USB port. And yes, the phone still has a micro USB port and not a USB Type-C port, which is underwhelming. This entire package is backed by a 3000mAh battery which is rated to offer up to 24 hours of standby time.
