In the past couple of weeks we’ve witnessed Xiaomi breaking sales records in China. It seems that another company wants to join in on the fun and his time around it is Huawei. Records show that the upcoming Huawei Honor 3C has logged 1.5 million reservations in just a span of 36 hours.

This only means that the customer is placed on a virtual queue so they will more or less be assured of getting it when it is released. Nevertheless, 1.5 million reservations is still an impressive number which goes to show that a lot of people are interested in the Huawei Honor 3C. Reservations are ongoing until Christmas day after which it is expected to be released on the same day as the Honor 3X.
