Huawei and Xiaomi are neck and neck in China as far as market share is concerned, but on a global scale, Huawei is way ahead. This China-based company has been selling their devices internationally for a long, long time now, and their Honor sub-brand is quite popular outside of China as well. The company’s Honor 6, Honor 6 Plus, Honor 4A and Honor 5X devices have been immensely successful in the last couple of years, and it seems like Honor is planning to release yet another smartphone really soon, read on.
Honor has released a new teaser on their official Weibo (Chinese social network) page. As you can see, the company is teasing the Honor 5A (and quite possibly 5A Plus) announcement for June 12th. Anyhow, both the Honor 5A and 5A Plus have already been certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC), and thanks to those listings, we basically know what will these two devices look like, and what specs can we expect them to feature. The Honor 5A will sport a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The phone will be fueled by an unnamed quad-core processor running at 1.3GHz, and a 2,200mAh battery will also be a part of this package. The 13-megapixel camera will be Honor 5A’s main shooter, while the 2-megapixel snapper will be available up front. Android 5.1 Lollipop will ship out of the box on this handset, and on top of it, you can expect to see Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) skin. The Honor 5A will measure 143.8 x 72 x 8.9mm, while it will weigh 138 grams.
The Honor 5A Plus, on the other hand, will be a larger alternative to the Honor 5A. This device will feature a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) panel, and will also ship with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, just like its smaller sibling. This device, unlike the Honor 5A, will be fueled by an octa-core SoC running at 1.8Ghz. The 3,000mAh battery will be included here, and the device will ship with 13 and 8-megapixel cameras on its back and front, respectively. This smartphone will measure 154.3 x 77.1 x 8.45mm, while it will weigh 168 grams.It is expected to ship with more or less the same software as the Honor 5A, and both of these phones will offer 4G LTE connectivity, in case you were wondering.
