Few days ago, we saw a smartphone from Huawei launching in China the “Huawei Honor 4C” which is a very good budget smartphone. Today, Huawei has launched this Honor 4C smartphone in India with an another budget smartphone being named as “Huawei Honor Bee”, which is also being called as ‘Made for India’ handset. Huawei Honor 4C has been priced at Rs. 8,999 and Honor Bee has been priced at extremely affordable Rs. 4,999.
The Honor 4C is now exclusively available to buy via online retailer Flipkart, however the Honor Bee is up for pre-order now which has started on both hihonor.in and Flipkart.com and sales will start from May 11. Additionally, the Honor Bee would be available at a discount of 10% on purchase via debit/credit card as a limited period inaugural offer on per-ordering. Alongside both smartphones, Huawei also launched a power Bank – Honor AP007 which sports a whooping 13,000 mAh battery. It is priced at Rs 1,399 and will be available on Flipkart as well.
The Huawei Honor 4C features a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) TFT IPS display. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 620 processor which is coupled with 2 GB of RAM. The Dual-Sim Honor 4C smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat with EM UI 3.0 skin on top. It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and CMOS sensor and it also houses a good 5-megapixel front camera. The smartphone packs 8 GB of internal storage that can be further expanded up to 32 GB via micro SD card. The Honor 4C is backed by a good 2550 mAh battery.
The Honor Bee is also a dual-SIM smartphone featuring a 4.5-inch (480 x 854 pixel) TFT display. The smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Huawei EMUI 3.0 Lite on top. Honor Bee is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Spreadtrum processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM. The smartphone sports 8 GB of built-in storage which is expandable via micro SD card up to 32 GB. The Honor Bee houses an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with dual-LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone is powered by a 1730 mAh battery.
Huawei Honor 4C and Honor Bee are good budget smartphones but Honor 4C has to face heavy traffic and stiff competition at its price point. On the other hand, Honor Bee can be an alone winner as its available at cheapest price possible with very good specs. Overall, Huawei seems to be keen on hitting the price point and establish its network in India.
