This is a successor to the Honor Bee and Huawei has launched this phone in India and will be available from April 19 at a price of Rs 7, 499.
The market being aimed at for this phone is the lower end or first time buyers. The phone comes with a 4.5-inch display and the screen resolutions stands at 854x480.The quad-core MediaTek MT6735M processor can be found under the hood and the OS will also be the good old Android Lollipop (ver. 5.1). Huawei has not forgotten to load its in-house EMUI 3.1 interface over the Androind OS. And to round off the hardware, the battery is 2100mAh in size.
The Honor Bee 2 has a 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal memory. There is a slot for the microSD card that can take the storage to 32GB. The cameras are 5MP in the rear and 2MP in the front. The phone supports 4G VoLTE, WiFi, GPS, a microUSB port and an Accelerometer and comes with a dual SIM provision.
Improvements over its predecessor
The most important question would be what changes Huawei has brought about in this newly launched Honor Bee 2 over the Honor Bee launched in 2015. One major change is the OS since the Honor Bee had Kit Kat (Android 4.4). The other is a higher powered battery (2100mAh against 1750mAh). Apart from this, the company has kept in view the progress made in technology accessible to the users and accordingly, while the Honor Bee could only support 2G and 3G the latest offering goes beyond that and facilitates 4G as well.
Speaking to the Mobile Indian, P Sanjeev, vice president sales, Huawei India-Consumer Business Group said, “We are very excited to introduce the Honor Bee2 in India through our vast offline channel and are confident that it will be a strong performer in the lower mid-level segment."
