Huawei has decided to introduce a spanking new mid-range smartphone today, where they have called it the Honor 3X. This is their first real octa-core smartphone, which so happens to fall under the mid-range category with a 5.5” High Definition display, where it will be accompanied by a 13-megapixel shooter at the back as well as a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. Of course, in certain regions, it will be known as the Huawei Honor 3X, and in the past, it was rumored to be known as either the Huawei Honor 4, or the Huawei Glory 4 as we mentioned earlier a few days back.
The octa-core processor in question happens to be the MediaTek MT6592, and while it does feature eight 1.7GHz cores which are touted to function all at once, these happen to be Cortex-A7 ones, so you can more or less expect a performance level that is similar to that of the Snapdragon 600 in benchmark tests. We do know that the Huawei Glory 3X comes with a 3,000mAh battery and dual SIM support, among others. Will it ever arrive in the US? Perhaps, who knows? In China, it would retail in the region of 1,700 yuan, which when converted to US dollars, stands at approximately $280 thereabouts for an unlocked handset.
