Huawei had revealed a while back that the company is not really interested in competing aggressively in the low-end budget segment like other Chinese smartphone makers. Instead, the company is interested in fighting for the mid-range and top-end market with the likes of Apple and Samsung. But that doesn’t mean the company has abandoned the low-end segment, as we have seen pretty decent offerings in this segment as well. Now, it looks like the company is preparing to refresh its low-end Honor lineup with two new models Honor 5A and Honor 5A Plus. Both these smartphones were spotted on the TENAA certification agency in China.
Specs wise, the Honor 5A comes with a 5-inch display with 720p resolution and a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. Further, the phone will feature 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM. At the back, the device will feature a 13MP sensor, which is an upgrade from 8MP shooter on the Honor 4A released last year. But the front camera remains the same 2MP. Other features include Android 5.1 Lollipop, 2200mAh battery, and 4G LTE support.
Coming to the larger model, the Honor 5A Plus, the phone comes with a 5.5-inch 720p display with an octa-core chip clocked at 1.8GHz under the hood. Inside, you get 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, same as the Honor 5A variant, but the battery has been bumped up to 3000mAh. Also, the front gets an 8MP shooter, while the rear features the same 13MP sensor.
Since these two phones have hit TENAA, expect a launch to be soon. Pricing for Honor 5A should be on the same lines as the Honor 4A, i.e. around 699 Yuan which comes to just $106. [source]
