While Huawei has a solid top-end flagship lineup, the company is also present in the budget market and has some decent offerings. We had already seen the Honor 5A and Honor 5A Plus before, thanks to their TENAA listings and now, Huawei’s Honor sub-brand has released a new teaser on its Weibo page revealing that the Honor 5A will be announced on June 12.
Since we saw two models on TENAA, on June 12, the company should announce two models as well. The Honor 5A will be the smaller sibling coming with a 5-inch 720p display, on the other hand, the Honor 5A Plus will come with a 5.5-inch 720p display. Apart from the size, the phones also differ in terms of their design and placement of their camera sensors. You can check out both the phones in the images in below.

As for the specs, the Honor 5A will come with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. At the back, there will be a 13MP camera, while up front, you get a 2MP shooter. Inside its 8.9mm body, the phone features a 2200mAh battery.
Coming to the Honor 5A Plus, TENAA reveals that the phone will come with a 1.5GHz octa-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. At the back, you get a 13MP camera as well, but the front shooter is upgraded to an 8MP sensor. Inside its 8.45mm body, you get a 3000mAh battery.
Since Honor 5A series phones are going to be targeted at the low-end market, you can expect it to start at 699 Yuan ($106). The competition in this segment is really fierce, and yesterday, we just saw the entry of ZTE’s Blade A2 handset that comes with pretty good specs for its price.
