First Huawei smartphone with true octa core processor has just been announced officially. It’s called Huawei Honor 3X. Previously, the octa-core smartphone from Huawei is rumored to be Honor 4.

A true octa-core processor MediaTek MT6592 is placed inside the smarpthone. The processor’s performance is boosted by 2 GB of RAM. It also supports dual SIM feature (mini SIM and micro SIM). Other features include dual microphone, DTS audio, 3000 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS with Huawei Emotion 2.0 UI.
Honor 3X is launched by Huawei to compete with XiaoMi. Therefore, Huawei set lower price than XiaoMi. The price is 1,698 yuan or around $279.
