Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has come up with yet another exciting device in India. Just a few minutes ago in a launch event held in New Delhi, India they have launched their new mid-range offering, the Honor 6X. The device will be selling from ₹12,999 and will be available in a few days.
Earlier Honor has caught eyes of many (including us) by launching the Honor 8. The phone is Honor’s flagship device and interestingly, it is not as costly as a flagship. It offers good specs including the dual rear camera for a price of just ₹29,999.
These days, dual rear cameras are not very surprising to see in the Huawei and Honor lineups. In recent times, they have launched Huawei P9 and as mentioned earlier Honor 8. Both of the phone offers a dual rear camera setup. But those were higher mid-range and flagship devices. It is worth mentioning that this is the first time any smartphone brand is launching a dual camera smartphone at such a great cost.
To start with the Honor 6X is built with aluminum and features a full metal unibody design. The device also has 2.5D curved glass. Other than the dual rear cameras, the phone also comes with impressive hardware. It is powered by an octa-core Kirin 655 chipset and Mali-T830MP2 GPU. The device has two variants. The first one comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. The second variant is the powerful one which comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage. Other than variations in storage and RAM rest of things are similar in both variants.
The device has also got a 5.5 inch full HD (1920X1080) IPS display. Currently, the Honor 6X runs on Android 6.0 based EMUI 4.3 but it is expected that the device will get an update soon. The upcoming update is expected to feature Android 7.0 Nougat based EMUI 5.0. Furthermore, the device has a fingerprint scanner and has the general set of sensors, which include accelerometer, proximity sensor and magnetometer.
When it comes to the camera the Honor 6X has got a dual rear camera setup. The camera features a 12MP main sensor and an additional 2MP depth sensor. The dual camera setup ensures high-quality images with depth of field effect. Furthermore, in the front, there is 8 MP sensor for the selfieholics. To power up the whole device Honor 6X uses a 3340 mAh battery.
The Honor 6X is highly praised around the world for being a great device for the price. I think even in India this is going to continue. As mentioned earlier, the device will be selling for ₹12,999 and ₹15,999 respectively for the 32 GB storage + 3 GB RAM and 64 storage + 4 GB RAM variants. It is worth noting that, Honor 6X will be an Amazon exclusive and will be available in Silver, Gold and Grey colors.
