The Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, with it’s Internet smartphone brand “Honor”, has just launched a new smartphone, the Honor 4X, alongside the Huawei Honor 6 Plus, in India. The smartphone has a 5.5-inch display with the 720p resolution, just similar to what the device competes with – the Xiaomi Redmi Note and Yu Yureka.
The Honor 4X is priced at Rs. 10499. The phone goes on pre-order from today, and it will be available from March 30th, on Flipkart.
This is a special variant for India, as unlike the HiSilicon chipset used for the Chinese unit, the Honor 4X that will retail in India, is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit processor, clocking at 1.2 GHz, and the prime reason for the same is to make it compatible with 4G LTE networks in India. The Snapdragon 410 SoC is associated with 2GB RAM and Adreno 306 GPU. There’s an 8GB internal storage, as well as a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion, up to 32GB.
There is a zero gap GDD display, with IPS technology. The device also has a box integrated sound chamber for higher volume output.
The camera combination includes a 13-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie shooter. The rear camera has a Single LED flash, and comes with a F/2.0 aperture. Being 7.9mm thick, it is good to see that Honor 4X comes packed with a 3000 mAh battery, which boasts about 72 hours of battery life on normal usage.
The connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/ A-GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and USB 2.0. The device will be available in Black, White and Golden color variants. It is a Dual 4G SIM device, with 4G Blind-mate – Dual card dual standby. It supports all TDD and FDD LTE bands in India.
