Probably sensing the incredibly affordable, incredibly well-endowed Honor 5X is starting to lose its novelty factor already, under siege from competitive Xiaomi and Meizu mid-rangers, Huawei seems just about ready to unleash an even cheaper Honor-series “flagship.”

Okay, flagship might be a bit of a stretch, but according to information kindly shared by Tenaa, the upcoming Honor 5C, model number NEM-TL00, should haul a 5.2-inch Full HD screen, octa-core Kirin 650 processor, and 2GB RAM.

Furthermore, based on relatively high-res product images divulged by the same certification agency, the phone is at least partially made of robust metal, and features fingerprint recognition hardware on its back, just like the Honor 5X.

Since it’s a little smaller however, ditches the Snapdragon 616 SoC in favor of an in-house solution, and accommodates a 2,900 mAh battery, this stylish slab could end up costing less than its 5.5-inch cousin. Namely, in the vicinity of $150, we’re guessing, or the rough equivalent in Chinese Yuan, if the Huawei Honor 5C never makes it to the Western hemisphere.

We sure hope it will, of course, what with its remarkable (for the price point) 13 and 8MP cameras, as well as pre-installed Android 6.0 Marshmallow software. Wait, are we certain this is going to be priced lower than the Honor 5X? Oh, well, even if it fetches $200, it looks like a bargain on paper.
