Huawei Honor 4A offers decent specs and Android Lollipop for under $100
Huawei today unveiled a brand new Android smartphone called Honor 4A. Announced in China, the handset isn't a music-oriented one, as we assumed last week, but it's still interesting.

Unlike the recently released Honor 7, which is a high-end device, the Honor 4A is a more modest smartphone, this being obvious if we look at its 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, or at its quad-core 1.1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor.

The Honor 4A is built around a metal frame, and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop customized with Huawei's EMUII 3.1 interface. Other features include LTE connectivity, dual SIM support, 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2200 mAh battery. The handset also has an 8 MP rear camera, and a 2 MP front-facing camera.

The 3G-only version of the Honor 4A costs only $98 in China (599 CNY in local currency), while the LTE model will be a bit more expensive: $112 (699 CNY). Huawei didn't say if the new smartphone will be released outside of China, though we assume that this could happen at some point. Would you pay $98 for the Honor 4A?
