The Honor 6C may have launched in Europe but the Chinese market is still yet to get it, with Huawei positioning the lower mid-range offering as a rival to the just released Redmi Note 5A.

The Honor 6C was launched in Europe a few months ago, and it's only just about to head over to China, with Huawei intending for it to serve as a worthy rival to the newly launched Redmi Note 5A in China.

The Note 5A, for all its flaws, represented another high-value offering in Xiaomi's Redmi line, and the Honor 6C may just prove to be an even better deal. The Note 5A comes in multiple models but all share a 5.5" 720p display, rear fingerprint sensor, and a 3080mAh battery. 

The most interesting Note 5A is the mid-priced one with 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, Snapdragon 435, 13MP rear camera and 16MP selfie shooter with front flash. We expect that one to be the major rival to the Honor 6C, as the 6C features a 5" 720p display, Snapdragon 435—or Kirin 659, and 3 GB of RAM. Both devices also have similar design factors. 

The Honor 6C is expected to come with a price tag in the region of US$120, which would make it US$15 cheaper than the Redmi Note 5A.
