Huawei take to crashing the Oppo N3 launch date with the Honor 4X announcement


Over the past year Huawei have been launching products at the same time as rivals, this continues with the launch of the Huawei Honor 4X on October 29th, the same date as the Oppo N3 launch.

With just a few days left to maximise anticipation, Huawei released another few teasers earlier today to hint at the specs the Huawei Honor 4X will be bringing to the table. The large number ’64’ surely points at the use of a 64bit processor. The second teaser looks to be pointing at the camera function on the now Honor model.

So what do these teasers actually mean? Well both Qualcomm and Mediatek have 64Bit chips suitable for a mid-range Huawei phone, and then there is also a possibility that the 4X will get a new in house Hisilicon chip. As for the camera we can expect at least a 13 mega-pixel camera, but are Huawei going to bring something really special to the table? Perhaps OIS?

The Huawei Honor 4X should get a 5.5-inch 720p display, 2GB RAM, 8GB memory and room for a Micro SD card, dual sim support and Android 4.4 Kitkat. Mainland Chinese phone customers can expect a low price of around $150!

      They crash by on the one hand diverting attention away from them, and secondly using the attention time of other products to throw attention to their own product. Huawei has never released their top line products in such a manner. Always their mid or low end, or sometimes even some of their accessories.

    I think Huawei is a good company, the only think that they need to improve big time is their camera on their phones. If they can do this like oppo they may can be par with samsung and apple. Oppo is very bad at software support. dont get me wrong build quality OPPO is top notch, however after a year they will forget your $600 that you pay to them 12 months ago!

    Huawei always release their mid end products very quickly but never release their high end products on time. They usually release their higher end products 4 months after announcement. Besides they will totally disappear without any firmware update. Totally forget about the $600 – $700 + that you spend.

      Most Chinese companies have that mindset and business model, once they have your money they don’t care about their customers. This is why even the Chinese especially the middle-class) go for Apple rather than oppo or xiaomi.
