Open sales of the Honor 5C are now live in India

Back in April, Huawei, or rather its sub-brand Honor, added an interesting new offers to its device lineup – the Honor 5C. Now, after a couple of quite successful flash sales events, users in India can pick up the device from either the official Honor store or Flipkart with no need for a prior registration.

Priced at just INR 10,999 (about $160), the Honor 5C, available in Grey, Silver and Gold is a pretty attractive offer, even more so, since Flipkart has an old phone buyback program for a discount of up to INR 10,000.

That price tag gets you a 5.2-inch IPS LCD panel with FullHD resolution, an in-house Kirin 650 chipset with an octa-core CPU ([email protected] + [email protected]), paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. Imaging is taken care by a 13MP primary shooter with an f/2.0 lens, aided in the dark by a single LED flash. On the front you get an 8MP cam with an f/2.0 aperture lens.

The handset measures 147.1 x 73.8 x 8.3mm and weighs 156g, while packing a 3,000mAh battery, it also has dual-SIM support, Cat.6 LTE. Bluetooth is v4.1, there’s Wi-Fi b/g/n (no Wi-Fi ac), GPS, GLONASS and Beidou for satellite positioning and there’s also an FM radio receiver.

Last, but not least, there is also a fingerprint reader on the back, although, sadly, not on EU markets, which the Honor 5C hit just recently. As already mentioned, buyers in India can find the device on Flipkart and the Honor store, linked in the sources. It is also worth noting that both offers are for the LTE-enabled variant – a necessary clarification, as there is also a cheaper 3G model in existence.
