Huawei has officially launched its newest high-end smartphone offering, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus. This latest Huawei device is a follow-up to the affordable Honor 6 handset, which hit the European market just recently in November.
As many might have guessed, the Honor 6 Plus is being positioned by the Chinese phone maker as a bigger and meatier version of the Honor 6 smartphone. Thus, the newer Huawei handset comes with a generous 5.5-inch LCD display screen with 1920 by 1080 resolution. This is undoubtedly a blown-up version of the Honor 6's screen, which sports a 5-inch display screen.
Camera-wise, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus has a handful. On its rear side, the device is fitted with dual 8-megapixel cameras that are capable of advanced depth capture and refocus, even after the users has taken the image (reminiscent of HTC's latest flagship device -- the One M8).
And just like HTC's Ultrapixels, the twin-camera setup of the Huawei Honor 6 Plus has bigger light capturing pixels within its sensor. They measure 1.98 microns (HTC's measures 2 microns), which helps them get better results in minimum light scenarios. As for the sensor's aperture, it can be adjusted from f/0.95 up to f/16.
A third 8-megapixel camera is also featured on the device's front side. The triple 8-megapixel quality may not be an accident. In Chinese tradition, 888 is considered a lucky number, and Huawei may have purposely incorporated three 8-megapixel cameras for good fortune.
With regards to hardware specifications, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus is equipped with an octa-core Kirin 925 SoC, plus a low-power I3 co-processor that can be used for health and fitness tracking purposes. The battery comes in at 3,600 mAh.
The device also comes with 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 16 gigabytes / 32 gigabytes of internal storage. For good measure, the smartphone also has a microSD card that can support up to 128 gigabytes of additional storage. Those who want or need additional storage may be delighted to know that Huawei is also offering 100 gigabytes of free cloud storage.
On top of that, the Chinese phone maker is also giving users access to more than 8 million global Wi-Fi hotspots, and the option to avail of the company's SoftSIM data roaming subscription service. This service is set to be launched in China in early 2015 and promises access to data for $0.80 per 20 megabytes, or equivalent to roughly $4.50 per day.
Like most Huawei smartphones, the Honor 6 Plus also features an infrared transmitter that allows users control over television sets and entertainment systems. When it comes to software, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus runs on a customized EMUI 3.0 Android ROM.
