Huawei will soon be adding another device to its Honor lineup and this time it will be a low-end budget handset. Our beloved Chinese Communication Equipment Centre, TENAA has yet again managed to surprise us by leading details about an upcoming Huawei device. This budget Huawei Honor device has been model numbered SLC-AL00.
The Huawei Honor SLC-AL00 will carry an older Cortex-A7 based quad core processor from Qualcomm clocked at 1.09 GHz, which will be paired with 2 GB of RAM. Based on the clock speed of the processor, we assume that the Huawei Honor SLC-AL00 will come with either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 or the Snapdragon 210.
Either way, there is nothing to be impressed with, since both of these are at the extreme budget end of the processor line up and most companies avoid them, even on their entry level devices. Instead, they choose the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 or a MediaTek SoC. The fact that Huawei has included such a budget oriented processor with an older architecture is testament to the fact that it was aimed at producing an entry level device that’s way cheaper than the competitors like the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Moto E (second generation).
The coupled 2 GB of RAM does impress us considering the fact that it is paired to a budget processor, but at the same time it also gets us thinking of what is the use of plenty of RAM, when your processor is not fast enough to provide a lag-free experience?”. What we mean to convey is that the additional RAM will keep the applications from force closing, but the overall performance of the application will still be sluggish if the processor can’t keep up. It is like having multiple car pool lanes filled with the Tata Nano.
Out of the box, the device will run Huawei’s own Emotion UI on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop. It will also be Dual SIM and 4G LTE capable. The images suggest that the Huawei Honor SLC-AL00 will be constructed from plastic and will feature a rose gold metallic looking frame on the sides. We are uncertain whether this frame is actual metal or plastic coated to appear like metal.
