We haven’t seen a Huawei Honor branded handset here in Australia since the original Honor went on-sale back in 2012. The Honor line has gone from strength to strength overseas, and now it’s back, with the Honor 4x now on-sale exclusively at JB Hifi.
The Honor 4x is a mid-range phone, with high-end aspirations. At $349 it’s a great price, and spec wise the phone ticks a lot of boxes when it comes to hardware. Fitting into the mid-range phone category, the phone comes in only black colouring with:
- 5.5” 1280 x 720 Resolution TFT IPS HD Screen
- Kirin Octa Core 1.2GHz 64 bit CPU
- 2GB RAM
- 8GB on-board storage with microSD card slot up to 32GB
- 13MP Rear Camera with LED Flash and support for 1080P recording and 5MP Front Camera
- Wi-Fi IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/AGPS/Glonass
- 4G LTE
- Android 4.4 (KitKat)
- 3,000 mAh Li-Polymer Battery
- 152.9 x 77.2 x 8.7 mm @ 165grams
While the phone isn’t quite up to the premium mid-range phones we’re seeing arrive from the likes of Alcatel with the Idol 3, its still a decent phone.
Huawei Australia haven’t added the phone to their devices page as yet, but you can check it out on the JB HiFi website.
