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?

they don't have the greatest reputation, but if they can produce a 5", 2 gigabyte RAM phone for $115 then it will tempt many consumers over here. Pessimistically I'm guessing that they won't release it at least at that price point in the us.

Sure. Import tax will increase its retail price a bit. Still it is a decent phone at the price point.

I'd take a Mediatek processor over a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor any day
