It has been expected that the Huawei Honor 5C will be launched sometime this week, but apart from the possibility of the handset being powered by the Kirin 650 chipset, no details have been available for the Chinese company’s next mid-range offering. That’s changing today, as Chinese certification authority TENAA has revealed both the specs and images of the device.
The Honor 5C will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel selfie camera, 16GB of expandable internal storage, and a 2,900 mAh battery. Android 6.0 will come preloaded, with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top. In terms of design, the Honor 5C seems to have a metallic finish at the back, although it’s not necessary the body will actually be made of metal.
Given the specs, the Honor 5C will probably be announced without much fanfare, especially with the recently launched P9 and P9 Plus grabbing all the headlines. No specific date for the unveiling is known, but sometime before the end of the month is a good bet.
