Honor 5C with Metal Body and Fingerprint scanner available at $155

Huawei’s Honor brand launched a budget handset Honor 5C, the smartphone comes in two variants such as 3G version and 4G version. The former is priced at $140 (CNY 899) and 4G version is available for $155 (CNY 999). In addition the mobile comes with striking and trendy design.

The Honor 5C  features a 5.2 inch IPS LCD screen with 1080p resolution and it is powered by Huawei HiSilicon's Kirin 650 chipset, Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.7 GHz and 2GHz per cluster of four, supplemented by the ARM Mali-T830 GPU. The mid-range mobile comes with a 16GB of expandable storage and 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM.


There is a 13MP rear camera and 8MP selfie snapper which provides quality pictures in low light. The low budget smartphone supports a fingerprint scanner too which is quite interesting.  However, the company dragged the feature of high-end devices into a mid-ranger mobile and makes it more exclusive. Furthermore, the mobile runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 interface out of the box.


The mobile has been launched in China and now it is time to launch the Honor 5C ahead of Asia market. The mobile supports all connectivity in China but we are not sure whether it will support 3G/4G frequencies in your country.
