Looks like Huawei is poised to continue firing on all cylinders in order to meet its 2016 projected target. And the target stands at global sales of 140 million which will be great compared to last year where it sold 108 million smartphones.
It seems as though the target is realistic as the manufacturer adds to its line of devices, and currently making the headlines is the Huawei Honor 6X. Recall that the Honor 5X debuted last year and sold more than 8 million units in its first nine months on the market.
The 6X device looks like a successor to the 5X device as it recently appeared on Chinese regulatory agency TENAA with model number BLN-TL10. It was previously seen a few weeks back on TENAA’s website with model number BLN-AL10.
Based on the images that appeared on TENAA about these two devices with different model numbers, we can conclude that they are the same. From the image comparison, the back case is not an all-metal design as the top and the bottom end of the device is made of plastic materials. Also, the dual cameras at the rear are very much visible as well as the fingerprint scanner under the camera.
To the specifications as per TENAA’s listing, the Honor 6X features a 5.5” display full HD, under its hood, is a Kirin 650 chipset coupled with RAM of 3GB and 32GB of internal storage with an expandable MicroSD slot support.
The camera department is boosted by an 8MP front-facing camera and 12MP primary shooter + 2MP secondary shooter (dual cameras at the rear). There is also support for 4G LTE, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, NFC and other connectivity options. It will run on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS based Emotion UI (EMUI) OS that will be backed by a battery of 3340mAh.
The Huawei Honor 6X looks likely to be budget-friendly and has been touted to release mid-October. It is rumoured to be in production already in four of Huawei’s factories in China, with the phone likely to support all Chinese networks.
