Huawei’ child brand, Honor is doing an exceptional job in the country with its budget smartphones. The last year’s Honor 5X was a huge hit for the vendor and this year’s Honor 6X earned many a million praises. The Honor 8 was also a decent offering.
Honor has come up with one more smartphone in the country and that too in the entry-level segment. Dubbed as the Honor Bee 2, the phone is priced at Rs. 7499 in India and will be sold via all the offline channels across the country.
The company is offering 15 months of warranty service, and it will be available in three color options black, gold, and white. The highlighted feature of the phone is the support for VoLTE and 4G LTE.
Also, the Honor Bee 2 has a rainbow colored Saturn ring around the camera module at the rear, same as the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro. This LED light will display notifications on your phone according to your choice, and you can customize them on per application basis.
Being an entry-level smartphone, Honor is keeping the specs pretty simple on the phone. The phone has a 4.5-inch FWVGA display with a resolution of 480×854 pixels. At the heart of the phone, is a 1.3 GHz quad-core chipset, clubbed with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, which can be expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card.
On the rear, we have a 5 MP snapper with dual LED flashlight, and up front, there’s a 2 MP sensor. The phone measures 134.1×66.7x 9.9mm and have a small 2100 mAh battery.
The major downside of the phone is it comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop with no scope for Android updates soon. Alongside 4G VoLTE, the phone has support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a micro USB port.
The phone will go against the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 3s and recently announced Micromax Evok Power, but both the phones offer better specifications than the Honor Bee 2. The price looks high compared to the competition, ideally should have been close to Rs 5000.
