Huawei Honor 5C may launch next week with upgraded chipset

Peter, 07 April, 2016

The Honor 5X will soon receive a more affordable sibling, the Huawei Honor 5C. The info is limited, but we're looking at a brand new design and an upgraded chipset compared to its predecessor, the 4C.

The chipset will be a big upgrade - going from Kirin 620 to Kirin 950. That's the same chipset that powers the Mate 8 and substitutes four of the CPU cores for powerful Cortex-A72s, not to mention the more powerful GPU.

The new chipset also brings LTE (which was omitted on the 4C). It's speedy LTE Cat. 6 for up to 300Mbps downloads.

The final piece of info is a date, "4.13," which translates to next Wednesday.

Say that with all the certainty you like. Still just a rumor.
