In the world of runners, not everyone is a marathonist. To be a marathon runner, one requires a lot of stamina and the lean muscle. In the world of smartphones also, not all are powerful and offer long battery backup at the same time. This is because most powerful processors often are accused of drawing more battery juice. However, Huawei has developed a processor which requires less power but at the same time is powerful enough to handle a dozen of tasks with ease.
The processor, Kirin 650 is in the core of the newly launched smartphone of Honor, the Honor 5C. The Kirin 650 chipset has been made with FinFET Plus 16 nm chip technology that makes it power efficient and decreases power consumption by as much as 40%. This new chipset also reduces energy loss, hence increases the battery backup as a result.
Along with the superb chipset, the Honor 5C is armed with a huge 3000 mAh battery. This compact battery comes 650 Wh/L energy density – the best for a 3000 mAh battery at present. This means it is as good as a 4000 mAh battery with lesser energy density.
The humongous battery allows Honor 5C to offer one and half days backup even for the heavy users whose life revolves around their smartphones. With average usage getting two days of power back will never be an issue.
On top of that, the Honor 5C has the Android 6.0 operating system which has Doze Mode in which the system attempts to conserve battery by restricting apps’ access to network and CPU-intensive services. It also prevents apps from accessing the network and defers their jobs, syncs, and standard alarms.
Additionally, the Honor 5C has Huawei’s 3.0 power-saving technology that further allows the user to save power when in need.
Note that Honor 5C will be available for purchase in India on June 30 from Flipkart and Honor India’s website (store.hinonor.com/in); you can register for the phone on the websites. As far as specifications goes, the Honor 5C smartphone has a metal unibody design and features a 5.2-inch full HD (1920 x 1080p) display. It is powered by a Kirin 650 64-bit octa-core processor, which is paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It has an expandable storage slot for a micro SD card of up-to 128GB capacity. The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with Huawei’s EMUI 4.1 on top of it and is backed up by a 3000 mAh non-removable battery.
The smartphone has a 13-megapixel shooter on the back with Dual tone LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, and an 8-megapixel selfie camera with 77 degrees wide-angle lens is in its front panel. On the connectivity front, the smartphone offers Dual SIM (Dual standby),4G LTE, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with A-GPS and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. The smartphone also has a fingerprint sensor 2.0 on the back panel and houses dual stereo speakers at the bottom on the phone. The handset measures 147.1Ã—73.8Ã—8.3 mm, and weighs 156 grams
