Honor Malaysia will be opening pre-orders for the Honor 4X soon, its latest mid-range smartphone. Surprisingly, it will go for only RM619 instead of its earlier price tag of RM699. We know what’s on your mind: the RM619 retail price is inclusive of GST, which just make the Honor 4X an even more compelling smartphone.
What makes the Honor 4X particularly different from other mid-range device is its processor. Instead of using the typical Qualcomm Snapdragon or Mediatek processors, the Honor 4X is powered by Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 620 64-bit 1.2GHz octa-core processor. Although the number of cores doesn’t necessarily mean it will offer a good performance, an octa-core processor at this price range is always good.
Other specifications of the Honor 4X include a 5.5-inch 720p IPS display, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a microSD card up to 32GB, a 3,000mAh battery, and 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras. It also has dual-4G SIM slots, which is quite uncommon for a mid-range device.
Pre-order of the Honor 4X will start at 3.08PM today on Vmall.my. It will be shipped on the 18th of April 2015. If this smartphone pique your interest, it’s definitely worth checking out.
