Want a phone that supports almost every network in the world including 4G FDD/TD LTE bands? Huawei Honor 4X is the answer! Huawei just announced its newest budget smartphone named Honor 4X and it bears few special things. Honor 4X is powered by Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 Quad Core 1.2Ghz 64bit processor. It also supports over 20 network bands worldwide including China’s own China Mobile and Unicom networks. This means that there might be only 1 Honor 4X model for China and international market. Software updates might be faster than the current Huawei smartphones because there might only 1 model for the entire world unless Huawei decides to market it as different models.
Here are the notable specifications,

We like the fact that Huawei choose Qualcomm processor instead of MediaTek one because Qualcomm processors and GPU brings compatibility to lots of games resulting less bugs. 64bit architecture is welcomed but Huawei will need to push the Android 5.0 update to Honor 4X to make it fully compatible with the hardware since Android 4.4 doesn’t support 64bit processing yet.
Honor 4X is set to go on sale for around $215 in China and Huawei made no compromise to the specifications considering this is just a budget smartphone. Design seems great on Huawei’s marketing images and it comes in 2 colors at the moment which are white and gold. 3000mAh battery is a huge plus for consumers and the Snapdragon 410 processor is very efficient at power consumption so you will get a nice amount of usage before the battery runs out.
