Honor has officially launched its latest smartphone Honor 5C today in India. The device is priced at Rs. 10,999 and sports decent specifications which make its competitive as the other Chinese devices at this price range. It is the success for the popular Honor 4C that was launched in 2015 with a polycarbonate body. The Honor 5C was first launched in China in April this year and now in June, the device was made available in selected global markets.

    Well there is so much competition in this price bracket now and almost every device has similar specs but what sets it apart is its 16nm processor,seems promising on paper.Waiting for the full review to see if it actually delivers.
