Huawei has launched Honor 5C as its latest smartphone to Europe, which it brings with all about wowing potential buyers with the killer combination of high-octane power and an eye-catching low price. Although a release date has yet to be announced in the US or Australia. Before you go beyond, you should have a look at its configured specs, price and comparison chart.
The phone’s all-metal body is clad in brushed aluminum alloy unibody, which the HTC One M9 had already. With a slick-looking design that really nailed it in the department. It has a square 13-megapixel camera that sits perfectly on the rear not only promising to take great photos, rather has a special coating that Honor says will reduce glare and prevent fingerprints from causing blur. It’s accompanied by an 8-megapixel selfie snapper on the front.
However, the 5C isn’t all about a camera-centric smartphone, but it has impressive features and keys across the board. These radically includes two quad-core processors and a dual SIM-card slot, which will come particularly handy if you’re a frequent traveler.
The 5C is already been out in China, available to purchase for some time now, where dual SIM-card slots are common. In fact, this isn’t the case in Europe, and undoubtedly phone users here might appreciate the option to switch between SIMs. All the best for Honor – being able to offer the similar functionalities will help stand out in the otherwise crowded European market of smartphones.
Available in grey, silver and gold, the Huawei Honor 5C will go on sale from June 20. You can buy the phone SIM-free online from Amazon, Honor and a number of other retail sites. Another major selling point is the 5C’s £150 price tag, that converts to about $220 or AU$295.
