Huawei announces Honor 5A smartphone for Asian territories
The Huawei Honor sub-branding was envisioned as a family of smartphones reserved for higher-end models. Despite this, Honor devices have been trickling down to mainstream and even budget prices with the current Honor 4A. The successor to the Honor 4A was leaked through TENAA a few weeks ago and Huawei has finally unveiled the price and specifications for the Honor 5A smartphone:
- 5.5-inch 720p display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC
- 2 GB RAM
- 16 GB eMMC
- 13 MP rear f/2.0 + 8 MP front f/2.0 cameras
- GPS, single-band 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0
- 3100 mAh battery
- Dual-SIM capabilities
- Android 6.0.1 with EMUI 4.1 pre-installed
- 154.3 x 77.1 x 8.45 mm
Alternatively, a second model will also be made available with a Kirin 620 SoC. Otherwise, both versions are essentially identical including the use of a plastic cover and metal frame. Note, however, that some common European LTE bands may not be supported including bands 7 and 20.
The Honor 5A will be available in China this June 17 in Black, White, Blue, and Gold options. The Kirin 620 and Snapdragon 617 models will retail for 700 Yuan (95 Euros) and 800 Yuan (110 Euros), respectively.
