honor 5X and honor Holly 2 Plus launching in India

by: Robert TriggsJanuary 28, 2016


Huawei’s honor brand has two new smartphones heading to the Indian market very soon, the honor 5X and the honor Holly 2 Plus.

We recently reviewed the honor 5X and found the handset to be one of the best budget-friendly smartphones on the market right now. The device packs a 5.5-inch Full-HD display and an octa-core Snapdragon 616 processor paired up with 2GB of RAM for decent performance. The phone also features a 13 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and an f/2.2 front camera with 5 megapixel resolution and 88 degree shooting angle. There’s also a 3,000mAh battery, Quick Charge 3.0 support, a fingerprint scanner, and dual-SIM compatibility, which adds up to quite a lot of top notch features for a mid-range handset.

The honor Holly 2 Plus is a slightly lower end smartphone, with a 5-inch HD (1280×720) display, a quad-core MediaTek MT6735P SoC, and 2GB of RAM, which is still ample for your day-to-day tasks. The phone also packs in a 13 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera and a huge 4,000mAh battery, along with 4G LTE support and 16GB of storage. Both handsets are powered by Huawei’s EMUI 3.1 software, which is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Both smartphones will be sold through Flipkart and Amazon India, and come with a 15 month warranty and 1 month free screen replacement in the country.
