It's been less than a week since Huawei unveiled the flagship P9 series camera phones. Now, the company's subsidiary Honor is reportedly prepping to launch another handset dubbed as the Honor 5C later this week.

Technology blog, GizChina has claimed that Honor 5C will be unveiled April 13. The new phone is said to be the successor of popular entry-level smartphone Honor 4C, which was launched exactly a year ago. It is expected to come packed with Huawei's proprietary Kirin 650 SoC (System-on-Chip).

Besides the new CPU, the new phone will also come with other upgrades in terms of internal features as well as build quality. 

Tipsters told GizChina that the Honor 5C will boast metal-based shell on the back and HD (1280x720p) display on the front. Under the hood, it will feature a 2GB RAM, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with custom Emotion UI, a 13MP primary camera and dual-SIM slots.

Other key features such as battery capacity, front camera and screen size are yet to be ascertained.

As of now, Huawei has not responded to the speculations with regard to Honor 5C. We just have to wait for one more day to know what the company has in store for the fans.
