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.

these chinese companies seem to copy everything they see .. their designs reminded me of the xperias and iphones but you'd say it's a coincidence .. now here comes the Note 3 Copy to prove this and erase all doubts

So where does those Chinese companies copy everything, we are talking about Huawei, I like to know where Huawei have copied anything ? Looks ? not even that Samsung and Apple copied each other much more. Huawei is just light years longer forward than iphone, new iphone 6 is light-years behind Huawei, with dual CPU ( Huawei octa core ) 8MP camera ( Huawei 13 MP ) iphone can not change battery, and can not get close to Huawei 3X pro or Huawei P7 If you buy iphone it is like buyig a Skoda car at Bently S price.

Huawei needs to do 2 things if they want their phones to sell. 1. fire and replace their product designers. 2. rebrand their products, start a new line of phones using a less Chinese sounding brand name, have their new design team work on those

Xiaomi has some extremely Chinese-sounding brand names too. They seem to be able to sell well

Here I somehow agree with you, on your point 2 point 1, I think the design is no worse than Samsung or HTC Point 2 for sure, Huawei 3X o and Huawei P7 er both excellent phones, with much better spec than iphone, and much less than half the price, and much faster.

well sometimes I wish Samsung hires Huawei phone designers, Samsung designs good phone but they screw in those small details here and there, the faux-leather on this phone and the final finishing are amazing...
