Chinese manufacturer Huawei has unveiled the third entry to its Honor line of smartphones. Aptly named as the Huawei Honor 3, the device comes with not only modest spec upgrades but also a rugged transformation that offers resistance to dust and water.
The last two generations of Honor have been known for their mid-level specifications. The Huawei Honor 3, while still a mid-ranged device, offers some nice improvements in several key aspects. For one, the display is now a 4.7-inh 720p LCD that’s very sensitive so as to detect even wet hands. Processing power is upped to 1.5GHz through Huawei’s own K3V2E quad-core CPU. The Honor 3 also has IP57 certification, making it capable of enduring a meter deep of water for up to 30 minutes as well as dusts.
Other specs include 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage with microSD expansion, and a 13-megapixel rear shooter. Android 4.2.2 runs right out of the box, with the user interface modified by Huawei’s Emotion UI. Suffice it to say, the phone has a respectable range of features that only falls short for power users.
The Huawei Honor 3 is already available in China for ¥1,888 (or Php13,760 in today’s exchange rate). There’s no indication as to when it will officially receive a Philippine launch.
