Honor 5X and Honor Holly 2 Plus launching in India


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 615 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.
