Honor, the sub-brand of Huawei has launched a new smartphone in India, called the Holly 3 Plus. This is more like an upgraded version of the Honor Holly 3 smartphone which the company had launched previously. The new Holly 3 Plus packs slightly better specs than the Holly 3 and it is priced slightly higher as well in comparison to the same. The company didn’t have an official launch event for the same and it was rather a silent launch, however, Honor team has confirmed the launch of the smartphone with us.
Talking about the specs of this smartphone, it sports a 5.5-inch HD IPS display on the front, meaning it has a resolution of 1280 x 720. Internally, it is powered by a 1.2GHz Kirin 620 octa-core CPU which is coupled with 3GB of RAM. It also has 32GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card upto 128GB for adding more storage. This is one of the main difference between the Honor Holly 3 and the Holly 3 Plus. The Holly 3 has 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage only. however, sadly, this one is also running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based EMUI 4.1 and Nougat.
In terms of the optics, we are looking at a 13MP rear-facing shooter whereas, on the front, there is an 8MP selfie snapper. The entire package is kept powered by a 3100mAh battery which should be good enough to keep it powered for at least a day. Other connectivity options include 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, Micro-USB, and Bluetooth v4.0. It measures 154×77.1×8.45mm in dimensions and weighs 168 grams. This smartphone is priced at 12,999 INR and you can get it in offline retail stores unlike the Holly 3 which retails online i.e. on Amazon India website.
To give you some perspective, the Holly 3 also packs the same size display with similar resolution. In fact, it is powered by the same SoC as well. In fact, the only which has changed now is the RAM and storage configurations. The Holly 3 is priced at around 8,000 INR. If you are fine with having 2GB RAM, then Holly 3 is still a great option.
