Huawei is working on some decent smartphones and are getting ready to take on Samsung and other smartphone manufacturers in the U.S. Currently, Huawei Ascend P6 is considered the best of Huawei but it seems that the company isn’t done yet. The Chinese manufacturer officially unveiled another mid-range device – Huawei Honor 3 in China.
The device brings decent specifications at the table considering its price. It’s powered by Huawei’s own quad-core K3V2 chip clocked at 1.5GHz with 2GB RAM. On the storage side, the device will have 8GB internal memory with a microSD card slot. The device has a 4.7-inch display featuring a 720p resolution. In terms of software, the device comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
It’ll have a 2,300 mAhbattery and Honor 3 has passed IP55 and IP57 certifications that make it water and dust resistant as well. In addition, the device comes with a 13.1MP Exmor RS Camera with a 1.3MP front camera. Finally, the device comes with an Infrared transmitter that is compatible with almost 3,000 models of appliances, according to the company.
There is no confirmed news about the price of the device but it is expected to go on sale for 1,888 yuan (almost $300). I don’t think $300 is too high for a device like Honor 3 that brings a decent set of specifications. The device will be available in China but we hope that it will make its way to other markets as well.
