The Affordable Dual-Camera Smartphone with 3340mAh Battery
Initially launched in its home country in October, then teased by Huawei Pakistan later last year, and recently gone through a global launch at CES 2017, Huawei Pakistan has now officially launched the affordable dual-camera smartphone Honor 6X in Pakistan.
While most of you already know about the features, although listed below as well, the most anticipating factor here must be the local price of Honor 6X in Pakistan. So the official price of the phone has been announced and Honor 6X will cost you Rs. 28,999/- for the base model which has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
As the announcement suggests, this is the starting price of the phone so you can expect there will be a 4GB variant as well but it’s not confirmed yet. Considering base price which is far higher than the launch price in China and a little higher than the global price recently announced at CES 2017. Sure there are various factors in pricing and most important thing is the local taxes which makes up the price. But there are even higher prices in Europe and the UK.
Huawei Honor 6X Features
Like its predecessor, the Honor 6X also features a full metal build with a little better hardware features. Dual-camera is what Huawei has made much common among its many of the devices however unlike the high-end Honor 8 or Huawei P9, the dual-camera setup in Huawei Honor 6X is quiet different.

On the front there is an 8MP camera for video calling or selfies.
