1.5 million units of the value priced Huawei Honor 3C have been reserved
After a day and a half of being eligible for reservations, 1.5 million units of the value priced Huawei Honor 3C have been "reserved". This does not mean that the units have been pre-ordered, as no money has changed hands. It is similar to the pre-registration process used by some manufacturers and retailers. By making a reservation for the Huawei Honor 3C, these people will get first crack at buying the phone with no obligation to make the purchase.

The Huawei Honor 3C offers a 5 inch screen with 720 x 1280 resolution, a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6582 processor, a choice of 1GB or 2GB of RAM, 8GB of native storage, and an 8MP rear shooter with an aperture of f/2.0. That allows users to take clear photographs under low-light conditions. The price of the Honor 3C with 1GB of RAM is CN¥799 ($130 USD) rising to CN¥998 ($160 USD) for 2GB of RAM. The phone comes out of the box with one of the Android Jelly Bean OS builds pre-installed.

The handset is Huawei's response to the low priced Xiaomi HongMi, better known as the Xiaomi Red Rice. That phone is priced at the equivalent of $130 and offers a 4.7 inch glass with 720 x 1280 resolution, 4GB of native storage and a 2000mAh battery. An 8MP camera is on back and Android 4.2 powers the model. Sounds like there is some competition brewing in China at the "value" end of the smartphone spectrum.

Reservations for the Huawei Honor 3C will continue to be accepted until Christmas Day.
