Entering into this New Year, Huawei teased up the launching of a new smartphone scheduled for the first week of this year and they have lived up to their word. This launching however isn’t of a new smartphone as the handset in question happens to be the Huawei Honor 6X which was made official in China and India, some few months back.
They just took center stage in the US to make this device official ahead of their entry into CES 2017. The phone is aimed at the mid-range spectrum but comes in with mouthwatering specs usually associated with phones that are in the premium market.
One notable specification this device is well known for is its dual-camera sensor on the back panel which is made up of a 12 megapixel primary sensor coupled up with a 2 megapixel secondary shooter whilst a fingerprint scanner makes an appearance below them. On the top upfront however, an 8MP selfie snapper available for all your video calling apps and selfie needs.
This selfie shooter appears above a 5.5 inch Full HD Touchscreen display having a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and it is protected by a 2.5D curved glass which should reduce the probability of its screen breaking upon impact with the ground by over 60%.
Under the hood, there is a Kirin 655 octa-core SoC ticking at a speed of 2.1GHz. This chipset is bundled up with a Mali T-830 Mp2 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM. There is word of another variant of this handset soon to hit the market with 4GB of RAM as well.
More on the specs of this device is a 3340mAh battery pack which should be enough to handle all the demands thrown at it. It also comes in with five different color varaints all running the Android Marshmallow OS with the EMUI 4.1 atop.
As per price, the phone seems to be going higher than what it was sold for in China as it would be asking for $249 over at the US and the EU market as well. Pre-sale has already begun whereas the official sale would take place on the 15 of January.
