Honor had introduced several smartphones this year, including the Honor 5C handset which was announced back in April in China. At the time, we had no idea if the company plans to offer this smartphone in any other market, but they did. Honor had introduced the Honor 5C in the UK the other day, and has now added yet another country to that list. The Honor 5C was just announced in India, read on.
The company has just introduced the Honor 5C in India as well. The company has opted to release the Chinese variant of the device here, the model that comes with the fingerprint scanner. The Honor 5C model that was introduced in the UK does not sport a fingerprint scanner, unfortunately. Anyhow, the device comes with a 5.2-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) IPS display, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The phone is fueled by the Kirin 650 64-bit octa-core processor, along with the Mali-T830 GPU. One the back of the device, you’ll find the 13-megapixel camera (f/2.0 aperture, 5P lens), and the LED flash. The 8-megapixel shooter (f/2.0 aperture, 4P lens) is placed up front, and the 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the Honor 5C, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Huawei’s EmotionUI (EMUI) 4.1 skin. 4G LTE with VoLTE is also a part of this package, and so is Smart PA amplifier and SWS sound. The phone measures 147.1 x 73.8 x 8.3mm, while it weighs 156 grams.
The Huawei Honor 5C is made out of metal, it has not physical keys up front, they’re all placed on the right-hand side of this phone. The SIM tray slot is available on the left side of the device, and you’ll find Honor’s branding in the lower portion of the phone’s back. The device comes in Gray, Silver and Gold color variants, and it is priced at Rs. 10,999 ($163) in the country. The Honor 5C will be available exclusively from the Honor Store and Flipkart, and the first flash sale will start on June 30th, while the registrations begin today.
