Honor 5C mobile launched in India


The Huawei Terminal's Honor brand is all set to launch its new smartphone  Honor 5C today in India. The smartphone is priced at Rs. 10,999 and it will go on sale via Flipkart and HiHonor.com in its first flash sale at June 30. The smartphone was launched in China back in April.

The registrations for the phone will be open for the users at 2pm today.  It comes with a 15-month warranty, and screen replacement warranty for the first month.

The Honor 5C variant launched in India is the one with 4G connectivity. To recall, the China launch had seen the launch of a 3g enabled variant alongside. The Honor 5C in India also retains the fingerprint sensor, unlike the European variant, which was launched earlier this week. 

The dual-SIM Honor 5C supports Micro-SIM cards with 4G LTE connectivity on both the SIM cards. The Chinese company touts that the handset supports LTE Cat. 6 which means it can support download speeds of up to 300Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50Mbps.

The Honor 5C sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. It also sports an 8-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture lens. The rear panel of the Honor 5C also sports the fingerprint scanner.

Apart from 4G, the smartphone supports GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, GPS/ A-GPS, Glonass, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi connectivity options. The smartphone comes with regular Micro-USB charging port. It measures 147.1×73.8×8.3mm and weighs 156 grams. It packs a 3000mAh battery. The Honor 5C runs Emotion UI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
