According to TENAA, the Huawei Honor A5 mini has a 1.3 Gigahertz quad core chipset, possibly Huawei’s very own HiSilicon chip, with 2 Gigabytes of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The phone also has a 5 inch 1280×720 display with capacitive touch. It supports upto 128 Gigabytes of storage too with the help of an SD card slot.
The phone has its sights set for international sales, with support for various cellular bands, like GSM for worldwide 2G support, WCDMA for worldwide 3G support as well as TD-SCDMA for Chinese telecom operators.Surprisingly it also has CDMA2000 support too. It also supports LTE as well, more specifically TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE with support for Band 38,Band 39,Band 40,Band 41(2555-2575 MHz,2575-2635 MHz,2635-2655 MHz) in TDD mode, as well as Band 1,Band 3 in FDD mode. Most surprisingly, TENNA also says that the phone supports VoLTE, which is an added plus point for this device.
The main camera of this phone is a 13 MegaPixel shooter with LED flash, while the front camera is a paltry 2 MegaPixel. But the interesting part about the the front camera is the presence of a front facing flash, which will be helpful for those selfies at night.The battery is a 2200mAh one, which sounds mediocre, but maybe Huawei has optimized the phone to give out the maximum power out of that battery.
The phone has volume rocker and power key on the right. Surprisingly, we also see a button on the left, so maybe a camera key?. That would be great, in my opinion.
The most disappointing part of the device though is the Android version on the device. It boots Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, an OS which at this point is more than 1 and half years old. It will probably have its own UI on top of Android. It will also have a Micro USB jack for connectivity and a 3.5mm jack for audio. Till it launches, check out some pictures of the device below.
