The Power From Within

Allen pointed out that the majority of silicon chips in the mid-range market still use processors ranging from 20 nm to 28 nm. The Kirin 650 uses 16 nm FinFET technology, while compared to 28 nm, it is two generations ahead.
The device is packed with a large 3000 mAh capacity battery. With power of the chipset’s flagship big.LITTLE architecture, supported by the Android 6.0's Doze Mode and Huawei's SmartPower 3.0 power-saving technology, the power consumption of the honor 5C is decreased by 40%.
Other than lightning-fast performance and efficient power consumption, the Kirin 650 ensures a smooth user experience, all thanks to the rapid rapid eMMC 5.1–based flash memory chip and all-new EMUI 4.1, based on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a wide range of useful features.
Not only this combination of such advanced processor with a less than RM 1,000 product is a first for honor, but first in the world!
In terms of enhanced security, the Fingerprint Identification 2.0 includes the Replay Protected Memory Block (RPMB) technology, which encrypts and stores fingerprint data in a separate secure storage area, ensuring that fingerprint data cannot be accessed, even if the phone is rooted.
