Huawei makes the Honor 8 Pro official in Russia

Huawei makes the Honor 8 Pro official in Russia

Not once, but twice so far we've heard that Huawei plans on launching the Honor V9 in markets other than China as the Honor 8 Pro. And now the move has become official because Huawei's Russian arm already has a listing up for the Honor 8 Pro.
As you'd expect, the device seems to be identical to the V9 for the Chinese market. Thus, the Honor 8 Pro packs a 5.7-inch QHD touchscreen and a dual 12 MP rear camera with 4K video capture support.

The handset is powered by the in-house developed Kirin 960 chipset just like the P10 and theMate 9. This is aided by a whopping 6GB of RAM. Internal storage is 64GB, and you get Cat.6 LTE and dual-SIM support. Keeping this running is a 4,000 mAh battery. The Honor 8 Pro will ship with EMUI 5.1 on board, which is layered atop Android 7.0 Nougat. The device is 7mm thick.
Unfortunately pricing hasn't come out yet, but past rumors talked about the Honor 8 Pro going on sale in Europe on April 5, which is next week. So hopefully we'll hear more about this in the next few days.

WhatsApp to get PiP video calls
WhatsApp beta version 2.17.265 for Android comes with a new feature, one that is enabled by default for those devices that are running the Android O Developer Preview. The feature would let you minimize the video call window into a smaller window so you can keep your video conversation going while answering another WhatsApp conversation.
We’re not sure if the small window with the video chat is a floating window that can be dragged around, nor do we know if the video conference would continue even after minimizing WhatsApp. If so, this would be one of the first video calling apps to allow this type of multi-tasking on a smartphone platform. Are you an avid WhatsApp user who would love the idea of a pop-out video calling feature?
