MT6582 Huawei Glory 3C – Sub $200 Phone With 2GB RAM!
About a month back we wrote about Huawei coming out with a new line of phones – the 3c and the 3x. The 1GB version of the Huawei Glory 3C has completed 3 rounds of sales. With all units selling out in just a few minutes with each round.
Now just released is the Huawei Glory 3C with 2GB RAM. Supposedly Huawei released 80,000 units at the amazing price of 998 yuan ($165 USD). There has been considerable interest in the Huawei Glory 3C because of the excellent name Huawei carries and the great price they’re releasing these phones at.
Though it’s 998 yuan in China, it will be considerably more expensive for Westerners due to the middle men. The phone’s popularity is also part of the issue, as it’s a highly sought after model.
The specs of the ‘high version’ Huawei Glory 3c include 2GB RAM, 2300mA battery, 8MP f2.0 rear camera, 5MP front camera, 8GB RAM and MT6582 SoC.What’s interesting here is the MT6582 SoC with 2GB RAM. To our knowledge, this is the first phone with the MTK6582 and 2GB RAM. It’s an excellent combination – the MT6582, which brings huge savings to the manufacturer and allows them to release a phone at a great price, and the 2GB RAM which so far has been unheard of in a sub-$200 phone.
The phone is also excellent looking with it’s square design. It’s great to see many China brands bucking the Samsung rounded look.
There is a sad ending to this story if you’re American or plan on travelling to any of the Americas, the GSM is reportedly only 900/1800/1900 and WCDMA is 2100. This means that it’s lacking full 2G support for the Americas and zero 3G support. Whether it’s due to licensing issues, as Huawei also sells American version phones, or whether it’s an oversight. It’s really amazing to not include quad-band GSM in the year 2014, but there it is.
