Huawei’s mid-range 8-core phone to be named the Huawei Honor 3X!

After partial specifications of the entry-level Huawei Honor 3C were exposed, further details about their mid-range 8-core phone are leaked including naming and price.

Huawei have adopted an Apple like naming system for their next Mediatek phones. News today tells us that quad-core Huawei Honor 5C will be unveiled as an entry-level, Hongmi contender while an mid-range Huawei Honor 5X will take on the Xiaomi Mi2S.

Gizchina News of the week

Previously leaked as the Huawei G570, the Honor 3X will sport a 1.7Ghz 8-core Mediatek MT6592 chipset, 2GB RAM, 8GB memory, 5.5-inch 720p display, DTS sound, 5 mega-pixel front and 13 mega-pixel rear cameras, 3000mAh battery and a price tag of just 1699 Yuan ($203).

It will be interesting to see how customers take to the 8-core Mediatek phone, and it upsets sales of the Snapdragon 600 powered Mi2S or not. What do you think? Would you go for the Mi2S or 8-core Honor 5X?

    At 1,700, it does sound like a very good deal, let’s hope MT 6592 can perform as well as Snapdragon 600, then we’ll have a winner here 🙂

    1700 Yuan is $280 (not $203). Still a fair price for these specs from a trusted brand like Huawei.

    I’d rather get the ZP998 for now. If Huawei manage to add in a bucket of features to the Honor 3X that rival the ZP998’s then I might consider it. Those chunky bezels and generic design aren’t helping it win fans though.

      According to the specs, I would expect +50% more battery life compared to ZP998. That’s a must have feature for me. And I pretty much like the 720p screen and the 8Gb ROM too (if the partition layout is good)
