Huawei subbrand Honor has officially launched the successor of Honor 4c(Gplay Mini), Honor 5C.

Specs | Huawei Honor 5c
The Honor 5c, unlike the plastic build Honor 3c and Honor 4c, now sports a full metal body to live up with the competition created by Le Eco 1s and Redmi Note 3. It sports a 5.2-inch Full HD display with 74% screen-to-body ratio, although Honor is yet to mention any kind of protection that the screen boasts. The phone is powered by a Kirin 650 SoC which comes with an octacore processor ( 4x 2.0 GHz Cortex A53 cores + 4x 1.7 GHz Cortex A53 cores). The Kirin 650 SoC is really powerful with high-frequency 64bit cortex A53 cores and Mali T830 GPU meaning it should do perfectly fine during multitasking and heavy gaming.
In terms of memory, the Huawei Honor 5c comes equipped with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The storage, however, can be further expanded via microSD card slot upto 128GB. Camera wise, the phone has a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash, f/2.0 aperture, Auto Focus, and 5P lens construction. Upfront, there is an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and 4P lens.
The Android Marshmallow based Honor 5c runs on the latest version of Emotion UI 4.1 and has 3000mAh non-removable battery. As far as connectivity is concerned, the phone has a Dual SIM nano SIM slots, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, and GPS. The phone also houses a Fingerprint scanner on the back, which is the same sensor that can be found on Huawei’s recently launched phone GR5.
