Huawei Honor 3C Play Announced for Sale

China's Huawei just keeps churning out the new devices - it seems like they are announcing a new device once or twice a month.  The newest model for the China market - we doubt it will make it very far outside of the country - is the Huawei Honor 3C Play...also known as the Honor 3C Play edition.  It is certainly a lower-end market device that should shortly hit the China shelves and will sell for about CNY 599 or about US$97.  It will come in five crowd pleasing colors - Black, White, Blue, Yellow and Pink - and just right for the younger crowd.  We should eventually see it hit some other Asian markets shortly after its China launch.

The Huawei Honor 3C Play will come with 5-inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and approximately 294 Pixels-Per- Inch (PPI).  To power the device it has a MediaTek MTK6582 Cortex A7 Quad-Core Processor clocked at 1.3GHz, a Mali 400-MP2 GPU and is packing 1GB of RAM and 16GB of Internal Storage, although it supports a microSD Card for an additional 32GB of storage.  The main camera has 8MP with autofocus and LED Flash with a full 2MP Front-Facing Camera (FFC) for video chatting and selfies.  The main camera also has software for doing a Multi-angle mode, 240-degrees+ viewing angles, three-dimensional effects and more.  In the connectivity department we have 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, AGPS and Bluetooth with a Dual-SIM card and running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei's proprietary Emotion UI.4.0A, with a 2,000mAh battery providing the power. It measures 142.2 x 72.3 x 9.4mm and weighs in at 156 grams.

For an entry-level smartphone it certainly packs in many features for video recording and photo taking.  It supports E-Books, and has a Gravity Sensor, Light Sensor, Distance Sensor, Acceleration Sensor, Compass Support, GPS and has a built-in radio.

Please hit us up on our Google+ Page and let us know whether you would like to see more Huawei's come into the U.S.  Their devices are certainly all plastic, but have a good feel and build quality at a fraction of the cost of many similarly spec'd devices...as always, we would love to hear from you.
