Huawei’s Honor line of affordable yet not underpowered smartphones is enjoying more and more success. With this lineup, the Chinese company has emulated Xiaomi’s sales model somewhat, opting to mostly get rid of intermediaries and sell directly to consumers.
Soon, Huawei is apparently due to launch the Honor brand in Russia. And on that occasion, it’s also going to unveil a new handset. Pictures showing it from a lot of angles have made it to Russian media today.
Leaked upcoming Huawei Honor smartphone
Along with the images come a few specs. The new Honor device should reportedly sport a 5-inch touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP selfie snapper, 4G LTE, dual-SIM support, and long battery life (though the exact capacity is unknown for now).
The chipset employed will be 64-bit and come with an octa-core CPU, but no other details have surfaced yet. Given past events though we assume this to be made by HiSilicon, Huawei’s mobile chipset developing arm.

Judging by the shapes of the three Android navigation buttons, this Honor phone should run the fifth iteration of Google’s mobile OS, also known as Lollipop. Obviously though, Huawei is expected to plaster its own Emotion UI on top of that, as always.
In Russia, the yet-unnamed smartphone will apparently retail for RUB 13,000 to RUB 15,000, which means $ 226 to $ 261 at the current exchange rates.
