Honor has once again made moves to disrupt the budget phone marketplace in India. After seeing a very enthusiastic response to the Honor 7X, the Huawei sub-brand is making further moves into the budget market which has currently been captured by Xiaomi.
This could soon change as Honor’s newest phone looks to be giving some of the best specs that can be seen at the below Rs 10,000 price point. In addition to this, the phone is also tipped to have four-front cameras. Now it can’t be actually said that the phone will dethrone the Redmi Note 4 as the king of the budget phones, but it sure to make a dent in the crown.
The phone, according to reports, has been passed through Chinese licensing authority TENAA, and is going to be first released in China. The phone is being called the Honor 7C and is being considered as a toned down version of the Honor 7X. The listing which itself reveals only the phone’s model number LND-AL30, the design and also confirmation that it’s made under the Huawei Honor sub-brand.
Now in the design, we can see that the phone has an 18:9 aspect ratio display. Inside the phone, we are going to find a HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC or a Snapdragon 620 chipset. In terms of RAM, we can see that the phone could be in possession of at least 3 GB of RAM.
But the most interesting thing is that the phone looks to have four cameras on it in total. Two in the front and two in the back. It can be assumed that the phone will be coming with front-portrait mode and also some AI recognition enabled beauty features. On the back, the camera configuration should remain the same as the Honor 7X which had 13 MP plus 5 MP camera configuration. The sensors could be arranged in a tele-photo and wide-angle configuration.
Also, we see that the fingerprint sensor has been placed at the exact same spot as we had seen on the Honor 7X. Up to this point, there is not too much knowledge about this alleged device, and in the Honor community, everyone has stayed mum on the developments of this device. But we can be sure that a device of the likes indefinitely on the makes.
When Honor plans to release this device is another matter entirely. Although the company could be putting the phone out when Xiaomi rolls out the Redmi Note 5. In any case, the chances of this Honor phone taking down Xiaomi’s newest offering is at the moment pretty slim. But you never know what kind of device Honor could pop up with and at the moment the hardware configuration is also a bit unknown so we can be in for a little surprise.
