Huawei Honor 3X Pro with faux-leather back cover launched in China
The Huawei Glory 3X Pro that we told you about earlier this month is now official in China, where it’s called Honor 3X Pro. This is the successor to last year’s 3X, and is special because it uses a similar faux-leather back cover like the ones seen on Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 3 and Note 3 Lite.
Apart from the enhanced design, the Honor 3X Pro brings another major improvement over its predecessor: its 5.5-inch screen has a 1,080 x 1,920 pixel resolution (instead of just 720 x 1280). The rest of the handset's features include Android 4.4 KitKat, a 5MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera made by Sony, DTS sound, octa-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
It looks like the Honor 3X Pro is available in China starting today, via Huawei’s own online shop called Vmall. The handset costs about $272 (1,698 Chinese yuan), and comes in two color versions: black and white. Huawei didn’t say if it plans to release Honor 3X Pro, or a device similar to it, in other markets.
Earlier today, we reported about another new Huawei smartphone, the Ascend D3. However, this one hasn't been announced yet.
