While the center of attention at Huawei's announcement today was the sexy Honor 6 Plus, the phone that got a bit less fanfare alongside it is well worth your attention too - especially if you are riding the mid-range tides. Previously leaked in its full glory by TENAA
, the Huawei Honor 4x looks every bit as good as expected.
Powered by the Kirin 620 64-bit processor and either 1 or 2GB of RAM, depending on the version you're getting. the phone packs a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 13MP main camera, a 5MP selfie cam, and a 3000mAh battery - which is darn generous for a mid-range smartphone! Finally, the Honor 4x runs Android 4.4 KitKat topped off with Huawei's Emotion user interface.
Great, but how's pricing? Hard to believe, but the Huawei Honor 4x sells for dirt-cheap in China! The 2GB RAM version is priced at $161, while the 1GB is just $128. Obviously, Huawei will make pennies selling these, but if that's what it takes to survive and counter Xiaomi's aggressive pricing, then so be it! Starting December 23, the Honor 4x will be sold in white, gold, and black. Alas, there's been no word on international availability.
