Huawei Honor 3X octacore available from 8th January

Huawei’s affordable, unlocked octacore Huawei Honor 3X will officially go on sale in China for just $280 on 8th January.

The Huawei 3X is the larger, more powerful big brother of the 3C which has been selling like hot-cakes since it launched some weeks ago. What differentiates the 3X from the entry-level 3C are the larger 5.5-inch 720p display, and 1.7Ghz MT6592 octacore processor.

The Huawei Honor 3X also boasts 2GB RAM, 32GB built-in memory, 13 mega-pixel main camera with anti-fingerprint coating on the lens, 5 mega-pixel front with F2.2 aperture and 88-degree wide-angle lens, 3000mAh battery, DTS and Huawei’s own Emotion UI2.0.

Huawei have adopted a Xiaomi style of marketing and selling both the new Honor phones with the 3X only being available at 10am on the 8th January and in limited numbers.
