Huawei recently took the opportunity to debut the newest addition to its Honor lineup of midrange smartphone devices -- the Honor 6X. With a rather friendly price of $199.99 upfront, the Honor 6X certainly counts as one of the more affordable smartphone releases in the last few months. For those who found the previous model, the Honor 5X, a decent find, it is a sure bet that they will also appreciate the Honor 6X, which comes with enhancements but without too much added cost.
Huawei’s Honor 6X features a 5.5 inch display screen with a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels and flanked by a 12 megapixel main camera and a 2 megapixel camera on the rear side, and an 8 megapixel selfie snapper on the front side. Photo loving Huawei fans will be excited to know that the dual camera configuration has the effect of producing extra depth of field when capturing images. Also, the Honor 6X’s rear camera also has fast Phase Detection Auto Focus, 1,080 p video, and several other camera modes.
With regards to hardware specifications, the handset comes with an eight core HiSilicon Kirin 655 chip set, aided with 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) as well as 32 gigabytes of onboard storage (expandable via support for micro SD). The device is also fitted with a capable 3,340 mAh battery, which comes with support for fast charging and delivers up to a couple of days of battery life, as claimed by Huawei. Other notable features include a one touch fingerprint reader, micro-USB charging capabilities, and Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
A note on that last item -- Android Marshmallow is by no means a bad OS, but for sure, users can not be blamed for expecting Android 7.0 Nougat on the Honor 6X. Moreover, prospective buyers should know that they will have to buy the handset unlocked at full price. Still, as an unlocked offering, the Honor 6X can be used on any major US mobile operator.
Huawei is making its latest Honor smartphone available in color options of gold, silver, and gray. For those interested, they can already start preordering the device, with shipment dates to commence this coming January 10th. The Chinese phone maker is offering special cut down prices of only $199.99 (limited time only on January 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st, between 1 PM ET to 3 PM ET), but the regular offer is at $249.99 for the 32 gigabyte edition.
