The Honor 4C and Honor Bee are the newest budget offerings from Huawei-owned Honor, in India. While the Honor Bee seems like an upgrade to the company's earlier Honor Holly smartphone, the 4C is a smaller version for the Honor 4X. The two devices enter the budget segment, which is arguably the most difficult segment in the market right now. Here are the first impressions.
Let's begin with the Honor 4C, which is obviously the more important of the two devices.
As mentioned before, the Honor 4C has a 13MP rear camera, which is similar to the Honor 4X before it. If it is anything like the camera on the 4X, then we would quite like it.
The major difference between the Honor 4X and the 4C is in the processor and display. This device runs on the 1.2 GHz octa-core Kirin 620 SoC, which is Huawei's in-house chipset and promises good performance. Well, we'll find out soon enough.
With a 2550 mAh battery, the Honor 4C should last long enough, although, we wouldn't expect a marathon battery like the Honor 4X here. Huwei says its Kirin 620 chipset is very battery efficient, but we'll have to verfy that first.
Onto the Honor Bee then, which seems like a quintessential budget device, set to take over from the company's earlier Honor Holly smartphone.

The back of the Honor Bee is similar in finish to the Honor 4X and Honor 4C, but it doesn't feel as premium. Also, the device isn't a looker like the Xiaomi Redmi 2.

The device also has a 2MP front camera.
The battery on this device stands at 1730 mAh, which should be enough, unless you're a real power users. Then again, a power user won't buy this device.
Honor Power Bank
If you think that's a Mi Power Bank then you're mistaken. Honor also launched its 13,000 mAh power bank, dubber the Honor Power Bank. It costs around Rs. 1,200 and seems like a pretty value for money device. While the design does resemble the Xiaomi device, the Honor device has slightly flattened sides, which make it look different.
