Huawei launches Honor 6X – Another Dual-Camera Phone, It’s Affordable; Price Specs Detail


It seems Huawei had a plan to push dual-camera configuration to each category of smartphone whether it’s high-end, a mid-range or an affordable phone. Launched just last month, Huawei Honor 8 started selling in Pakistan earlier this month. Now the company has launched Honor 6X in China.

Most important factor of the affordable Huawei Honor 6X is that it has a dual-camera setup like found in the high-end or mid-range smartphone now a days. The phone has a 5.5 inch display with FHD 1080p resolution and the screen features 2.5D curved glass. Under the hood, there is Kirin 655 16nm processor.

Unlike the high-end Honor 8 or Huawei P9, the dual-camera setup in Huawei Honor 6X is quiet different. The two cameras in 6X have a 12MP sensor with phase-detection auto focus (PDAF) and another 2MP sensor for depth mapping to simulate background blur effect (bokeh). On the front there is an 8MP camera for video calling or selfies.

The Honor 6X will be supporting 4G VoLTE networks. It will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 inside a unibody metal build and the device also features a fingerprint sensor which is as fast as it can unlock screen in just 300 milliseconds. The phone is backed up by a 3340mAh battery.

Kirin 655 SoC carries an octa-core CPU which is coupled with three different variations of LPDDR3 memory and internal storage. Honor 6X will be available in models with 3GB and 4GB of RAM where 3GB variant will be available with 32GB of internal storage. 4GB variant will give you the option to buy with 32GB or 64GB storage. Additionally all models will feature expandable memory via microSD card of up to 128GB.
