Huawei will be launching its Honor 6X smartphone in India today. The phone was announced at the company’s event at CES 2017, and follows in the footsteps of the Honor 8 and Huawei P9 – which also feature the dual rear camera setup. Reports have suggested the 4G LTE capable smartphone will be launching in India between the Rs 12,000-15,000 price range.
Honor 6X is priced at $250 when it launched at CES, which is around Rs 17,000. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and 403ppi pixel density. It is powered by the company’s own Octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor coupled with a Mali-T830MP2 GPU. Honor 6X comes in three storage variants 3GB RAM /32GB storage, 4GB RAM/ 32GB storage and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage.
The back of the device sports a dual 12MP + 2MP rear camera that comes with phase detection auto-focus and LED flash. The front sports an 8MP selfie shooter. Honor 6X is powered by a 3,340 mAh battery with fast charging and comes with micro USB connectivity. It weighs 162 grams, with 150.9 x 76.2 x 8.2mm dimensions. The fingerprint scanner is mounted on the back of the device.
Honor 6X will be running EMUI 5.0 (based on Android 6 Marshmallow) out of the box, but the company will be bringing Android Nougat to the device at a later date. In our first impressions of the device, we found the phone mimics the design of the Mate 8 and Mate 9.
