This new 5.5-inch handset powered by a Snapdragon 617 processor and a 3,000 mAh battery launches exclusively via LG Uplus on September 29.

Huawei has just unveiled a new affordable handset that aims the South Korean market. Since large screen devices are very popular in the area, it should not come as a surprise the fact that the new Huawei H is a 5.5-inch smartphone, although its specs are far from the high-end handsets.

Huawei H is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC, featuring a 13 MP main camera with a manual operating mode that allows the user to control the shutter speed, aperture, as well as the ISO value. The front camera for selfies is a decent 8 MP one, and everything is driven by a 3,000 mAh battery. Huawei H will be only available in black or white, unfortunately.

This handset will go on sale for about $215 USD later this week, but will only be available via LG Uplus. There is no info on its international availability or pricing yet, but we will get back to it as soon as we find out anything new. It would not be a surprise for the Huawei H to remain available only in South Korea.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
