Huawei offshoot Honor is bringing its 5C smartphone to India, tomorrow. While Honor 5C is gearing to woo people with its 4G support, HiSilicon Kirin 650 octa-core processor, 13MP cam and a 3000mAh battery, there is another rumor surfacing online. The reports state that the brand is mulling over to release a phablet. Honor launching a phablet is a new step by the company as it seemed to have stayed away from launching a phablet, until now.
Although there is no clarity in any of its specs, it’s said that new Huawei Honor phablet would feature a high-end battery of 4100mAh. The phablet would focus on entertainment, on content and multimedia consumption, said the reports. Higher quality larger display, 3G support, etc. are the other speculations about the new device. The size of phablets usually range between 5.5-inch to 6.5-inch, beyond 7-inch is called a tablet.
Considering the fact that Honor has been trying hard to improve its Kirin processor, the default guess for the phablet processor would be its new Kirin 650 octa-core processor. Huawei's Honor series has been a choice of those who look forward to an affordable price tag. And, phablet too is expected to come with an attractive pricing. There are only a few Honor smartphones available to grab in India. Hence, we expect the phablet launch to be sooner to expand its device portfolio in the country.
To recap, Honor 5C's launch event is scheduled at 11AM IST. Pricing details are not revealed yet. But, from the device's early release in China, it should be roughly available at Rs. 10,250 (The device costs CNY 999 in China).
