Huawei has responded quickly. Less than 24 hours after Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note, Huawei announced a cheaper, revised version of its Honor 3X. This phone comes equipped with a 5.5 inch glass with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Toss in the octa-core 1.4GHz MT6592 CPU, and so far the new Honor 3X is a perfect match for the Redmi Note. The new Honor 3X will have 2GB of RAM, a 13MP snapper on back and a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies or video chats. The 3000mAh cell on Huawei's model is just 200mAh shy of the capacity of the power source on the Xiaomi Redmi Note.
The new Huawei Honor 3X is priced at 998 Yuan ($160 USD), 1 Yuan less than the Redmi Note. The only questionable action on Huawei's part is that the manufacturer is limiting the connectivity of the phone to China Mobile's proprietary 3G TD-SCDMA network for now.
