Under the hood, it houses a Snapdragon 615 Octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory, a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP snapper on the front and a 3,000mAh battery.
On the other hand, the new Honor Holly 2 Plus sports a 5.0-inch HD IPS screen and comes with a MediaTek processor backed by 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP snapper on the front and a massive 4,000mAh battery.
