News & Reviews: Huawei Honor 3C Malaysia
Last Updated: Dec 19, 2014
The recent release of the Huawei Honor 3C Lite and Honor 4x smartphones have brought out another rumour regarding the Huawei Honor 3C. According to rumours from an anonymous source, the RM499 priced Huawei Honor 3C could get a successor next year by a device with some refreshed tech specs. These features and tech specs include a 5.5-inch display, 64-bit processor, 13MP rear camera and 4G LTE connectivity. What is even more interesting is that all of these mid-range features would be available around the same Malaysia pricing as the Honor 3C which was priced at RM499. Rumours also say that it could be priced even lower, which would make it a direct contender for the recently released Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G which retails for RM589 with similar tech specs. No details yet on Malaysia release dates but we expect it to arrive sometime in early 2015.

In a move likely to one-up other online smartphone selling competitors, Huawei Malaysia has announced that it will be bringing 30000 Huawei Honor 3C units to VMALL.My on 16 July 2014. The price will remain the same at RM499 along with the same value added tech specs and features of 2GB of RAM, a quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. We fully expect third-party sellers to be on the ready for said date as well, so be warned and be ready if you didn't manage to get your hands on the Huawei Honor 3C last Tuesday.

Huawei Malaysia recently revealed that 10000 units of their value-busting smartphone, the Huawei Honor 3C will be available at http://www.vmall.my from 11:58am on 8 July 2014. Unlike other third-party dealers and sellers of the Huawei Honor 3C, VMall.my is the official online store for the smartphone and as such, one of the few places in Malaysia to offer the smartphone at it's retail price of RM499. We've noted other sellers offering the smartphone for as high as RM799 and even then, there are still buyers for it. The Huawei Honor 3C brings many value-added tech specs to the market with 2GB of RAM, a quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera.
