We are only 3 weeks away from CES, but Huawei is already making some noise. They just announced the Glory 3X (or Honor 3x depending on the region), which was previously referred to as the Honor 4. Now this phone sports and octa-core, but don’t be fooled, this is a mid-tier phone. The octa-core is made by MediaTek (MT6592), and although all eight cores can run at the same time, it packs Cortex-A7′s, so don’t expect performance any better than a Snapdragon 600. That’s why we always say, don’t buy a phone because of specs alone.
As to the rest of the specs, the Glory 3X has a 5.5-inch IPS 720p (1280 x 720) display, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, dual-SIM capability, and 3,000mAh battery. It will be priced a 1698 Yuan ($280).
