Huawei held an event in China during which it updated its Honor line. These smartphones have been created to battle Xiaomi and its incredible price per features ratio. The Honor devices are sold in a similar manner to Xiaomi’s, and they come with good specs for great prices.
Even more so starting now. The original Honor 3X was unveiled in December, and already we’re seeing updates – though they’re not huge.
First up, we have the Honor 3X Pro. Compared to its non-Pro predecessor, this model has a higher-res screen (1080p compared to 720p) made with a better technology (LTPS), double the internal storage (now 16 GB), and a new back cover that comes with a “smooth skin texture design”, whatever that may mean.
The other specs have remained the same, so we have 5.5-inch screen size, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera, a 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor, 2 GB of RAM, dual-SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The Huawei Honor 3X Pro runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with the company’s own Emotion UI sprinkled on top.
The device have an improved processor, the HiSilicon Kirin 910 (1.6 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9), a new back cover, and Android 4.4 KitKat on board. Other things have remained unchanged through this upgrade, such as the 5-inch 720p HD screen, 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, and 2,300 mAh battery.
The Honor 3X Pro is priced at 1,698 yuan ($272, €199).
