The Huawei Honor 4C was unveiled today in China and is priced at the equivalent of $130 USD. Available from Chinese online retailers Tmall and Vmall, the Honor 4C features a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. Under the hood is a home grown HiSilicon Kirin 620 SoC. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can access the 32GB capacity microSD slot. The 13MP rear camera has an aperture of f/2.0, which means that it will be able to take quality photos even under low-light conditions. The 5MP front-facing camera takes care of selfies and video chats. A 2550mAh battery keeps the lights on and Android 5.0 is pre-installed.
Huawei will be offering the budget priced handset in black, blue, gold, pink, or white. The Honor 4C appears to be on sale in China only, although we could see a variant of the phone made available in other regions.
The Huawei Honor 4C will compete in China with a large number of domestically produced handsets priced around the $100 USD level. Of course, Huawei is helped by the fact that it produces its own chipsets for the device. This allows the manufacturer to keep pricing low while still offering a decent feature set for the phone.
