Earlier today, we reported about Huawei’s affordable octa-core Honor 3X, but the company also announced an even cheaper handset for just $130. Meet the Huawei Honor 3C, a quad-core smartphone with 5-inch 720p display running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Running under the Huawei Honor 3C’s hood is a MediaTek MT6582 processor, with a Mali-400 GPU and 2GB of RAM. In front of the device is a 5-megapixel camera, paired with an 8-megapixel main camera (a Sony sensor with f/2.0 aperture) at the back. Huawei’s Emotion UI 2.0 runs on top of the phone’s Android operating system.

Like its octa-core brother, the Huawei Honor 3C has dual-SIM functionality. Six different color variants (white, black, gray, color, pink, and light blue) will be available to choose from, perhaps suggesting that the “C” in 3C stands for “color” (although some are also going for “cheaper” due to the comparatively lower specs and price).
Other specs include the usual connectivity options, sensors (gravity, light, and proximity), 1080p video recording, a multimedia player supporting a wide variety of music and video formats, among others.
Users will be able to pre-order the Huawei Honor 3C today in China. Besides color, the device also comes in versions according to 3G network (TD-SCDMA and WCDMA), as well as RAM size. The 1GB will cost around $130, whereas the 2GB version will set buyers back about $160. There’s no official word on global availability, though.
