Huawei ready to offload Honor to potentially dodge US restrictions.

A microUSB port, single-band (2.4GHz only) WiFi and a price-tag of just £129.99. This is entry-level, but (as usual for Honor / Huawei), it’s a beautiful design and seems to tick along relatively well on the MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core 2GHz CPU. It’s 9mm thick and comes with …
