Huawei will reportedly adjust the level of competition as soon as the Honor 8 hits the store shelves with an array of awe-inspiring features and specs.
The Huawei Honor Note 8 is already equipped with an FCC certification which enables it to compete with some of the top-notch smartphones in the U.S. market today.
