Huawei’s upcoming smartphone, the Honor 5C has been certified in China, by TENAA, offering a glimpse of its design and specs.
Although the official release date for the device remains unknown, its predecessor – the Honor 4C – was released in April last year and one could expect something similar to happen this year.
Several reports online have however predicted that the smartphone will be launched on the 28th of April, 2016.
Huawei Honor 5C sports a 5.2 inch (1080 x 1920 resolution) screen display in an aluminium body design.
It measures 147.1 x 73.8 x 8.3 mm, weighs 156 grams and will run on Android’s Marshmallow 6.0 operating system. It also has a fingerprint sensor at the back.
Under the hood, the Honor 5C is powered by a 2.0 GHz Kirin 650 octa core processor which is further coupled with 2GB of RAM. This is expected to offer a good experience when multitasking with the phone.
In addition, the Huawei Honor 5C smartphone will come with 16GB of internal storage. This can however be expanded via a microSD card slot- that is if more space is needed for storing apps and personal files.
The phone’s power/lock and volume rockers are present on the right while SIM and micro SD card slot is housed on the left.
There is a 13 megapixel rear camera on the phone with LED flash for taking high quality pictures while an 8 megapixel camera is also at the front for taking selfies and making video calls.
The smartphone sports a healthy 2900 mAh battery which should be able to last users a day on a single charge, for normal usage.
There’s no word yet on pricing though, but with its specs and the fact that last year’s Honor 4C was priced at $130 (approximately 26,000 Naira), one can say that the Huawei Honor 5C will not break the bank.
