Huawei Honor 3C

Huawei has today announced the Honor 3C in Europe. The latest device in the Honor family comes with a 5-inch screen and solid specifications for just £109.99 ($170). Much like the Honor 6, Huawei will be skipping mobile operators altogether, letting nothing get in between you and their new smartphone.

Huawei has packed in an 8MP shooter (with 5MP on the front), 5-inch HD display (720p), dual-SIM capabilities for those with multiple accounts, Android 4.2, and a 2,300mAh battery. Huawei continues on its quest to shake up the market with more affordable, yet capable hardware under the Honor umbrella. The Honor 3C is expected to commence shipping on November 24. See the press release below for more details.

Hot on the heels of the attention grabbing launch of the new Honor brand in Berlin last month, Honor announces its second device, the Honor 3C. The Honor 3C is available for pre-order today and starts shipping on Monday, November 24th.

The 3C offers all the smartphone technology you need at an incredible price, featuring:

  • Better photos with an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary (front) camera with the ability to take beautiful selfies thanks to the auto beauty mode and the preview mode
  • A 5" (12.7cm) LTPS HD, touchscreen display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and 69% screen to body ratio
  • Dual Micro SIM, eliminating the need to carry two smartphones
  • 2300mAH battery with patented power saving technology providing over 24 hours of heavy usage or 300 hours standby time
  • An astonishing price of just £109.99 thanks to Honor's customer centric approach

Two high-spec cameras The Honor 3C has an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary (front) camera. Not only do both cameras deliver great quality images but the secondary camera has the added feature of the ability to take beautiful selfies thanks to the auto beauty mode and the preview mode.

Ultra vivid display With, 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, the HD touch sensitive screen offers 16 M colours. The 69% screen to body ratio and anti-fingerprint coating, make the display even better. The phone runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with the patented Emotion UI 2.0 interface.

Dual micro-SIM The Honor 3C has dual SIM functionality enabling users to switch between networks without switching devices. Gone are the days of a phone for work and a phone for fun; say hello to affordable roaming, through the use of a local SIM.

Long battery life Even with heavy usage the battery will last for over one day, thanks to a 2300mAh capacity and patented power saving technology; this means the Honor 3C has up to 300 hours standby time.

The Honor 3C is the latest statement from a new brand determined to shake up the mobile market. Bringing a high quality, low cost device to market immediately after launching with the world's fastest smartphone, the Honor6, speaks volumes about Honor's approach to the industry.

Lars-Christian Weisswange, Managing Director Marketing of Honor Europe commented: "With a price point of only £109.99 the Honor 3C is made for a digital audience who demand for new technology at affordable prices. The smartphone is at the center of this always-on generation's lives, keeping them connected with their world 24/7."

The Honor brand has been designed solely to meet the needs of the digitally native audience, who expect technology that matches their lifestyle when they want it.
