Spy photo: Huawei Glory 3, coming soon! Too little too late?

Spy photos and news of the Huawei Glory 3 announcement have hit the headlines today, but is this new phone too little too late? We think so.

Next month is going to be a truly exciting time for the Chinese smartphone industry. We have already seen the launch of the Vivo X3, and we should soon see the Mi3, MX3, Oppo N1, oh and then there is also the Huawei Glory 3.

Generally Huawei do a great job of keeping their new devices a secret till launch, so these recent photos of the Glory 3 suggest to us the phone will go on sale soon. Chinese tech sites seem to agree to and are telling us the phone will launch on 28th August.

Gizchina News of the week

But, we see a problem with the Huawei Glory 3, actually a few problems. First off the design of the phone has been directly taken from the current (12 month old) Xiaomi Mi2. It looks like a poor clone! Secondly the hardware also looks like it has come from the same (12 month old) Mi2!

So the Glory 3 is going to launch with a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 display, a quad-core 1.5Ghz K3V2 processor, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and 2200mAh battery, and 8GB on board memory(?!). And priced at 1888 Yuan ($308) it isn’t quite the bargain it could have been if launched earlier in the year!

I don’t know if I am being a little harsh on the Huawei Glory 3 but I don’t think this is a phone which can compete with the Xiaomi Mi2S, let alone the Mi3, MX3 or Oppo N1!

Let us know what you guy’s think in the comments section below.

    Still with their SoC? If they at least had an updated version, maybe…

    I’d rather get one with APQ8064 or Exynos 4412, and those are “old” SoCs by now.

    Very tired chip. They need to release their v3 chip now to have any respectability.

    first i really liked Huawei but since i discover Xiaomi, i think the first sucks a bit… they should put more efforts in improving their core (expecting v3 indeed) and offer better ones, like D2, P6 and my fav but not great compared with other, Mate :))
