Huawei is hitting the smartphone stores yet again with a well-specced’ and affordable product – The Honor 5. The price of the new smart device is expected to be around Rs 6,999 in India, which looks pretty reasonable. Let’s explore some features of the new Honor 5.
Design and display
Huawei offers a decent 5-inch screen with 720p HD resolution and that should suffice for rendering crisp text and images. The Pixel density of 294 ppi makes the screen sharp enough for comfortable reading.
The 8.9mm slim body with brushed-metal texture plastic rear cover feels elegant.
Additionally, honor 5 has a customizable easy key on the left side that can be used to launch camera app with a single press, flashlight on double-press and desired app on long press.
Huawei honor 5 is powered by an entry-level 1.3 GHz quad-core cortex-A53 processor paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage (expandable).
Huawei honor 5 features an 8MP rear camera with dual-LED flash and a 2MP front camera with LED flash which is mediocre in this selfie era.
Battery and Connectivity
Unlike its predecessor (Huawei honor 4 play), this phone has a removable 2200 mAh battery which should be good enough for 1-day usage for moderate and basic users.
Connectivity options include 3G, 4G-VoLTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Also, it gives you the liberty to use two SIM cards.
The Honor 5 looks like a competitive offering when compared to other handsets selling in the same price bracket. The lowest price of Honor 5 in India is expected to be around 6,999 INR. We will update you regarding where you can buy Honor 5 online in India once Huawei officially announces it in India.
