Huawei Honor 3 Release Date Set for Next Month

Huawei Honor 3

Do you remember that good looking Huawei smartphone that made the headlines as Huawei Edge and caught our attention with its fine aluminium case? Well, it seems that the terminal will be named Huawei Honor 3 by the time it officially hits the market.

A Huawei official has posted the confirmation on Weibo social networking service, saying that the Huawei Honor 2 successor will hit the store shelves in June. Huawei Honor 3 will be an “explosive” smartphone, according to Richard Yu, the CEO of the China-based company. The new flagship smartphone will sport the latest generation quad-core Hisilicon K3V3 processor, manufactured in house by Huawei.

The other Huawei Honor 3 technical specifications are interesting, too, as it will feature 2 GB of RAM, a display with full HD resolution, a primary camera mounted on the back with 13 megapixel sensor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Besides coming with a good looking aluminium case, the Huawei Honor 3 will be thin too, measuring only 6.3 mm. Rumor has it that the next-gen flagship smartphone of the Chinese phone maker will boast a Mali T658 GPU, which is 10 times more powerful than the popular Mali 400MP fitted on Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad chipset.

All we can do now is hope that the Huawei Honor 3 will be a global smartphone, as it sounds like a powerful competitor for HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Would you consider buying the Huawei Honor 3 if the price is right?
