Huawei has launched the latest iteration of the Huawei Honor Holly 3 in the Indian market. The new smartphone comes with a Plus moniker.
The new Huawei Honor Holly 3 Plus is priced at Rs. 12999 and will be available in offline as well as online stores.
The smartphone looks and feels similar to the last iteration Huawei Honor Holly 3. The Honor Holly 3 Plus comes with more storage (32 GB instead of the 16 GB) on the older device. Huawei has also added 3 GB RAM instead of the 2 GB Ram found on the Holly 3.
The storage is user expandable and can be expanded to 128 GB using a micro-sd card.
There are no other upgrades to speak about in the Huawei Honor Holly 3 Plus. The smartphone comes with a 13 Megapixel rear camera, which has a f/2.0 aperture lens.
There is an 8-megapixel front facing the camera to click selfies and it also comes with f/2.0 aperture lens.
The Kirin 620 Octa-Core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz powers the smartphone. It is an Octa-Core processor but the performance is below expectation as the processor scores close to 30,000 on the Antutu benchmark which makes it as slow as a Snapdragon 400.
The smartphone comes with 3100 mAH Battery capacity and offers all-day battery life. There is also an ultra-power saving mode to offer extended battery life.
The Huawei Honor Holly 3 Plus has dual sim support and is compatible with 4G LTE as well as VOLTE networks in India.
The mobile comes with a poly-plastic build with a crisscross textured back cover. There is 5.5 Inch Display that comes with HD resolution (1280*720) pixels.
Gloomily, the Honor Holly 3 Plus still comes with the 2 years old Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS along with the EMUI 4.1. They should have released it with the Android Nougat as Huawei Honor 5C and 6X has already got the Nougat update.
The smartphone has 8.45 mm thickness and weighs 168 grams. Compared to the Huawei’s own Honor 6x and Honor 5X which are priced similarly to this the Honor Holly 3 Plus looks disappointing as far as the MRR of Rs. 12999 is concerned.
It should be priced below Rs. 9,000 and notably the Honor Holly 3 is currently selling for Rs. 8499. I would suggest going for the Honor 6X in the range of Rs. 12000 and skip the Honor Holly 3 Plus.
