According to Chinese certification agency TENAA, Huawei is set to launch a 64-bit entry-level handset to take on the likes of the Redmi Note in the country. Dubbed the Honor 4X, the device is listed with a 5.5-inch 720p and a Snapdragon 410 CPU.
Xiaomi has seen a huge amount of success in its home market China, where it overtook Samsung to become the largest handset manufacturer earlier this year. Devices like the Redmi Note have been huge crowd favorites thanks to the number of features they offer on the cheap, like a 5.5-inch 720p display, 1.4 GHZ MediaTek MT6592 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB storage, 13 MP camera and 3,200 mAh battery, all for just $130.
Huawei's Honor 4X shares a similar screen, but features a 1.2GHz 64-bit Snapdragon CPU instead of MediaTek's processor. Also included is support for LTE (FDD and TD) as well as TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA and GSM networks, 13 MP camera, 5 MP front shooter, 2 GB RAM and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
The addition of 2 GB RAM and a 64-bit CPU as well as LTE connectivity in a device that will allegedly go on sale to the equivalent of $130 should be enough to generate a lot of consumer attention for the Honor 4X. That is if Xiaomi doesn't manage to launch a smartphone with better specs first. There isn't any indication as to when the device will launch, but we'll bring you all the details once it goes official.
