Huawei has shipped over 1 million devices in its C881X lineup. Today, we have come across yet another device in this lineup which will offer decent specs for a relatively low price tag.

The Huawei C8818 recently hit TENAA revealing a few set of pictures and the full tech specs. The phone will support only CDMA networks and not GSM, yet will feature dual SIM dual Standby, which is a rarity in these types of devices.

As for the processor, the Huawei C8818 will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 2GB RAM on board. There will be 8GB of internal storage which can be further expanded up to 32GB via MicroSD. Up front, the Huawei C8818 will feature a 5-inch 720p display along with a 5MP camera on top. At the back, there will be a 13MP shooter. The phone is said to run on the Android 4.4 KitKat version of the OS.

Design wise, the Huawei C8818 looks a lot like the Huawei Honor 4X. You can clearly see the round edges, top left camera placement and many other distinctive characteristics that’s directly carried forward from the 4X. So, the C8818 could be CDMA variant of the device. However, the phone is slightly thicker with the measurements, 143.5 × 71.9 × 8.9mm. On the other hand, the Honor 4X was 8.7mm thin. But, this particular device weighs around 162 grams which is less than the 165 gram 4X.

As you can see, the Huawei C8818 packs in good specs in well designed body. The phone could be priced anywhere around 1000 Yuan which would make it a great deal for customers looking to take advantage of 4G on CDMA networks.

Given that this is a CDMA edition, we don’t think the phone will ever be releaed outside of China. But what do you think about the phone, if the price is indeed $160.
