Huawei is on a roll this year as the company is all set to release a number of handsets in both, the top end and entry level lineup. While we already know that the Huawei P8 will be unveiled at an official event on April 15, it looks like the company has yet another gadget in store for us. The upcoming Huawei Honor 4C Play will be a compact device with a 5-inch display. The phone will have an eight core processor along with 2GB to run things smoothly. Moreover, since this will first launch in China, you can expect two versions of the device, namely the GSM CHM-TL00 and the CDMA CHM-CL00.
Since this is a 5-inch device, the dimension measure just 143.5 × 71.9 × 8.9 (mm). Also, it has a weight 162 (g) which is decent for a device of its size.
Coming to the exact tech specs, the Huawei Honor 4C Play will sport a 5-inch display with HD 720p resolution. There will be 2GB RAM onboard along with 8GB of expandable internal storage. Like mentioned above, you’ll find an eight core processor inside, however the exact make depends upon the version of the device. The GSM version comes with Huawei’s own Kirin 620 processor clocked at 1.2GHz while the CDMA edition comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615. At the back, there will be a 13MP camera while up front you’ll find a 5MP shooter. The Huawei Honor Play 4C runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and will feature a 2550 mAh battery.
The device will be available in white, black, and gold colors. Since the Huawei 4X is priced at 799 Yuan, we don’t think the Huawei Play 4C will be priced any higher. In fact, this particular device could be targeted to compete directly at the Xiaomi Redmi 2. And in comparison, the Play 4C does manage to get ahead of the Xiaomi device in some aspects.
Anyways, lets wait for the official pricing and availability details from the company and hope that we have yet another cheap device for choosing in the coming weeks.
