Honor has unveiled the Honor Pad V8 11, a tablet that looks a lot like the Honor Pad V8 Pro, but is smaller and has different specs.
It will launch in China on May 8th from 1799 Yuan, and will then run the Android 12 skinned MagicUI 6.1.
This is actually the first tablet to launch with the 2.6 GHz MediaTek Dimensity 8020 processor, so that gives us some new benchmarks.
Model options are between 128GB or 256GB storage, but both have 8GB RAM.
Honor Pad V8 11 has an 11-inch screen with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, and those who buy the keyboard for it can park the 4096 levels of pressure sensitive supported Magic-Pencil 3 inside the hinge, which is very convenient.
The battery size is just 7250 mAh, but this is a pretty battery efficient chipset, so it’s not as bad as it might initially sound and it may last for up to 15 hours, and the charger is a 22.5W fast charger too.
It has twin 13MP and 2MP rear cameras with LED, plus a 5MP front camera. The sound should be above average also on account of the quad speakers with DTS:X Ultra audio.
Other than that it has Wi-Fi 6, BT 5.2, location sensors, and a USB C port, but no standalone audio jack, as Honor went minimalistic design with this tablet. Though a USB C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter is available.
Color options on the tablet are dark blue and gold/yellow, both sporting a slim exterior of 6.9mm in thickness and a weight of 485 grams.
We’ll let you know if it launches outside of the domestic market anytime soon.
