Honor is what Huawei calls an ‘e-brand,’ a brand built from ground up for millennials and digital natives. Available primarily online, its product portfolio ranges from high-specced budget phones to premium mid-range products; and wearables.
Its top-of-the-line offering includes the excellent honor 7 Enhanced Edition, a powered-up version of the popular honor 7. It sports a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS-Neo display, an all-metal body, Smart Fingerprint, octa-core Kirin 935 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and a huge 20MP camera.
Its latest honor 5X launched recently, is an impressive mid-range device with a large 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 616 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage. Like the honor 7, it gets a full metal body.
Joining the fray is honor’s first ever wearable – the affordable Band Z1 which was introduced in London last year. Costing under MYR300, the smartband is the perfect complement to honor’s affordable smartphones.
Despite a lower price tag compared to its premium sibling – Huawei, honor devices are quickly blurring the lines in terms of design, material build and specifications.
