Huawei earlier today introduced the new Honor 3C budget Android smartphone for the Malaysian market at a press event in Kuala Lumpur. Priced at just RM499 ($153), the phone is being sold at the company’s official store VMall and retailers like SuperBuy, Lazada, StoreKini and Lelong.
The launch of Honor 3C in Malaysia comes at a very interesting point as Xiaomi has just announced its entry in the country and will most likely began the sales of Redmi smartphone first, which is a direct competitor to Honor 3C. Huawei Honor 3C will also be competing with the likes of Asus Zenfone 5 and Moto G, however given the aggressive pricing, Honor 3C seems like the best option for the consumers.
The Malaysian variant of Honor 3C comes with 5-inch 720p HD display, 1.3GHz quad-core Mediatek processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. The phone also packs 8MP rear camera with BSI sensor, 5MP front camera, 2300 mAh battery and Android 4.2 with Emotion UI.
According to Huawei, the smartphone will be available in Pearl White, Titanium Grey, Champagne Gold, Lamborghini Yellow, Rococo Pink and Tiffany Green colour options.
