Today seems to be a busy day at TENAA, as a lot of new Chinese handsets were spotted on the certification website. The latest model certified is the NEM-TL00 from Huawei, which is most likely the upcoming Honor 5C smartphone. Naturally, with the phone now listed on TENAA, we have a lot more details about the device.
First of all, April seems to be the right month for the successor to the Honor 4C mid-ranger as the device was announced back in April ’14. Also, yesterday, the company kind of confirmed the Honor 5C and it is said that the phone will be released on April 28.
Now, coming back to the TENAA listing, the Honor 5C will feature a different design as compared to its predecessor 4C. The phone comes with a metal body and a fingerprint sensor located at the back of the phone. As for the specs, the phone comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p display along with an octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz. This should be the Kirin 650 chipset, which we have heard about previously. What’s interesting is that the phone supports all three network carriers in China, which would be a big upgrade for the Kirin family.
Other specs of the Honor 5C include a 13MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing shooter, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 2900mAh battery, fingerprint sensor and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
As for the pricing, the Honor 5C is expected to be launched at 999 Yuan or less, which would be a competitive price tag. We are also excited to see how the Kirin 650 performs as compared to competitors like Snapdragon 650 and Helio P10. [source]
