Huawei Honor 3C 2GB will launch 24th January


Huawei’s Honor 3C has been selling like freshly steamed dumplings here in China, but the flagship 2GB RAM version of the phone is expected to be even more popular at launch!

Huawei decided to prove that it too can do low-cost with great specs and attacked rivals Xiaomi with the launch of the Huawei Honor 3C and 3X. Currently only the Honor 3C with 1GB RAM is available and has become so popular that many vendors are marking up prices to cash in on demand!

Huawei Honor 3C

On the 24th of this month Huawei will launch the flagship version of the Honor 3C which offers the same 1.3Ghz MT6582 quad-core processor, 13 mega-pixel 2.0 rear camera, 5-inch display and 2300mAh battery as the current model but with 2GB RAM rather than the standard 1GB.

Pricing on China for the unlocked dual-SIM Huawei Honor 3C 2GB with WCDMA support will be 998Yuan, but with demands so high don’t be surprised for prices to reach 1500 Yuan!

    I look with the resellers and they mention this phone only have 3G: WCDMA 2100MHz are you kindig us -_- I think the america continent we are condemned to buy expensive phones with the popular brands OMG this is really sad, i hope one day the chinese brands think more in us with their low-cost products that work here for expend or money , To dream doesn’t cost anything. I had my expectations for this phone but the same disappointing history again another nice chinese phone that don’t work in my country.

      These phones are designed primarily for the Chinese market, it just so happens that some European and other countries are lucky enough to have support for them. More companies are releasing phone for the US market but don’t expect anything super low-cost anytime soon.

          Let me explain .. All the Chinese vendors would love to expand to the international markets..however, due to licesing, patents, FCC, BQB, Wifi, CTIA, GMS .. all that crap.. it adds on a lot off costs to the phone, and it is really really time consuming, and hence, they build it for countries that doesn’t have so high requirements …. that’s the reason why these phones won’t get there at these low costs!!

            + These phones are all gimmicks anyways .. half of these phones are not available, if they are, they are marked up .. this is nothing more than a marketing strategy!

    13 megapixel F2.0 camera? In the 1 gb version it’s 8mp. Typo?

      13?? are you sure??

        No . I think it has 8 mp but in the article’s text it says 13. That’s probably wrong since the images says 8 mp too.

          with 8mp it’s equal to g700

        • January 21, 2014

          It could be correct indeed. The sensor can be 8MP but then through software postprocessing (interpolation/extrapolation) you can ‘pull’ the pixel up to that size. Probably it’s not a mistake..but I’m not 100% sure 😉
