Chinese manufacturer Huawei has just lifted the veil on a new phablet format Android smartphone. On the menu: octocore processor and Full HD display.
To be available in June, this is the Huawei Honor 3X Pro smartphone with its diagonal of 5.5 inches in Full HD definition (Mali-450MP4 video solution commands) and Android 4.2.2 aka Jelly Bean environment. No KitKat unfortunately.
Powered by a MediaTek MT6592 octocore 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM, it has two SIM housing, 3G+ compatibility, audio system with DTS optimizations, Wi-Fi 802.11n/GPS/FM/Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, a 13 megapixel digital camera with LED flash and 5 megapixels webcam. It also has a 32 GB flash memory, plus an extension possibility of microSDXC card (up to 128 GB).
Aboard finally, a Lithium-Ion battery of 3000 mAh. To avoid drawing a line once again on Full HD, as had been the case with the first Honor 3X introduced in late 2013, Huawei has greatly increased the capacity of the battery. It was 2300 mAh with the predecessor.
A price of 1,698 yuan, the equivalent of 200 euros, the phone was announced.
