Huawei is set to debut its newest Honor-branded handset — the Honor 6X — in the US this month. The affordable Honor 6X is the successor to last year’s Honor 5X.
The Honor 6X is a tough competition to high-end handsets provided the $249 price tag; you get a Kirin 655 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 3,340mAh battery capsulated in a metal body, sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p display.
The fingerprint reader has moved to the back accompanying 12-megapixel and 2-megapixel dual-camera setup for additional in-depth picture detail. This is Huawei’s fourth handset with dual cameras for rear photography, though it’s not co-engineered by Leica like the P9.
The Honor 6X runs EMUI 4.1 atop Android Marshmallow, which renders an Honor 5X- or Honor 8-like user experience actually, though, the company has committed to rolling out EMUI 5.0 for the handset very soon.
Pre-orders are open now, with full sales commencing on January 10 from HiHonor, Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg. Plus, Honor will also be running flash sales on January 10, 17, 24 and 31 with discounts.
