2GB RAM Huawei Honor 3C goes on exclusive pre-sale via Flipkart in India


Huawei’s response to the budget uprising from fellow Chinese and a few other international manufacturers, the Honor 3C just went on pre-sale in India earlier today.

The device features the successful and inexpensive MediaTek MT6582 quad-core chipset. The variant that went on pre-sale in India is the 2GB RAM one (there’s one with 1GB RAM as well), and carries a price tag of 14,999 INR or $255 on Flipkart. The e-commerce major is also offering 1,500 INR cashback along with RCB (IPL franchise) goodies as an earlybird offer, but you’ll have to place your order today itself to qualify for that.

The Honor 3C comes with a 5-inch display with a 720pHD resolution, an 8 mega-pixel primary shooter, 5 mega-pixel front facer and a 2300mAh battery to power it all besides the previously mentioned 2GB RAM and 1.3GHz quad-core processor. However, being a MediaTek phone it still ships with Android v4.2 Jelly Bean. Some MediaTek powered phones have started receiving the all-important update to KitKat and we hope the Honor 3C does too, in the near future.

It can put up quite a competition against devices like the Motorola Moto G among other Micromax and domestic-branded phones that are currently trending in the Indian market. What plays in the Honor 3C’s favour is the fact that it comes with expandable storage, besides double the RAM. On the other hand, the Moto G boasts an impressive build (considering what it goes for) and regular software updates.

So, who’s buying the Honor 3C?

    Huawei is day dreaming..if it thinks it can flog this for ₹15 k in india and sell ₹ 9 k in Mayaysia !! Special 68% price inflation for Indians..Huawei keep dreaming…u will sell a few hundered phones for sure.. but to achieve sales of MotoG or E price is required to be reasonable…and sensible and not scalper rates !!

      “Moto G’s price is Rs 12,999 for the 8 GB version and for 16 GB version the price is 13,999”

      yes; 15k is too much. How can Huawei raise rate 68% in comparison of Malaysia. Get your maths right before being discarded. There are better option in that price range especially Moto G. I think Moto G Universal LTE will be launched at price of Rs 15,500 at the end of June.

    Hi everyone, I might be in the wrong place but I really need your help. I need to replace my phone and am considering the following ones:

    – Xiaomi Hongmi 1S (1GB RAM might not be enough if I play games like Fifa 14, worth to buy?)
    – Xiaomi MI2S 32gb (very interesting phone but released more than a year ago, its price with shipping is around 255€ which is expensive)
    – Xiaomi MI3 (hesitating on this one because of its built in battery and big screen, 16gb version is around 255€)
    – LG Optimus G E975 (amazing phone with great specs: http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_optimus_g_e975-4941.php )
    – Nibiru H1 (finally available @ 1949deal for $205 without shipping)
    – Jiayu G4S

    Your help will be appreciated! Thanks!

      Only problem i have with Aliexpress is that their shipping is too long for me and while those that give option for DHL fast shipping is hyper expensive. There are other websites that offer DHL fast shipping with only 5% of the rate Aliexpresss offers.

        AliExpress is not just 1 seller! There are a lot of sellers with different DHL prices. The lowest I have seen was 7 Dollars (!!!) for DHL Express.

            However, I didn’t choose DHL. I chose Singapore Post and it worked fine.
