Huawei's Honor Holly has been available in select emerging markets and China for some time, but now the company is rolling out its mid-range smartphone in Europe. The Chinese brand announced that the handset is now available for pre-order in the UK, but the buying process is pretty unique to say the least.Interestingly, Huawei says that it will allow consumers to influence the price of the Honor Holly, at least partially. Instead of having a traditional pre-order window, Huawei has set up a registration system that will run until February 23, much like the systems used in China. The first batch of handsets will be sold at a special price that will be determined by the amount of registrations... for example, if there are a lot, Huawei will slash the price more. Not bad for a smartphone that costs just $114 in China. After that, the Honor Holly will be sold at its normal price, although Huawei has not said what that will be. The Honor Holly comes with a 5-inch screen, 720p resolution, a quad-core MediaTek chip clockes at 1.3GHz and paired with 1GB of RAM. Other specs include 16GB of internal storage, dual SIM, an 8 megapixel rear lens, 2 megapixel front facing module, and a 2000 mAh juicer.
