Honor 8S only comes in a single variant with 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded via microSD card.
At the back, we also get a 13MP camera while there is a 5MP shooter at the front for taking selfies. It also packs a 3020mAh battery, runs on EMUI 9 based on Android Pie right out of the box and will come in only black and blue color.
