Review: Honor Holly 3

By Udit Agarwal

After the launch of the Holly 3 in the month of October, Huawei Terminal brand Honor has launched a new variant of the smartphone in India. The new variant is nearly identical to the original, except for memory and internal storage - which get a bump here. The smartphone is priced at cost of Rs. 12,999 and is available across India through the retail outlets.

Specifications of the smartphone

The new Honor Holly 3 variant is a dual-SIM smartphone and features a 5.5-inch High Definition (720x1280 pixels) display and is powered and supported by a 1.2GHz Kirin 620 octa-core CPU. The major difference here is that the Holly 3 comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt onboard storage compared to the 2GB/ 16GB storage option of the original variant. The storage can be expanded via a micro SD card of up to 128GB.

Camera specifications seem to be identical as well with a 13-megapixel primary rear sensor and an 8-megapixel front camera for taking selfies, both coming with f/2.0 apertures. The Honor Holly 3 packs with a similar battery of 3100mAh that came along with the Holly 3. The other sensors include accelerometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, compass, and G-sensor.

The connectivity options include 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Driect, Wi-Fi hotspot, Micro-USB, and Bluetooth v4.0. The Holly 3 measures the same as that of the original variant at 154x77.1x8.45mm and weighs around 168 grams. As mentioned, the new variant of smartphone will be available through the retail outlets, while the Holly 3 is available on Amazon India.
