LAS VEGAS — Huawei’s sub-branded Honor 6X phone is no mystery — the cheap dual-camera phone was launched in China in October. Now, at CES 2017, the company officially announced the phone’s availability in the U.S., the UK and the rest of Europe.
It’s a 5.5-inch smartphone with a full HD screen, dual camera on the back (a 12-megapixel sensor plus an additional 2-megapixel one), Huawei Kirin 655 chipset and 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage, depending on the model.
The dual cameras on the back, which are positioned above one another (unlike the cameras on the company’s Huawei P9 phone, for example), should provide low-noise photos in low light conditions, fast focus and very sharp photos.
Huawei also points out the phone’s long-lasting, 3,340mAh battery, aluminum case and curved glass edges.
The Honor 6X is available today in three colors: Grey, Gold and Silver, on Honor’s online store as well as Amazon. Price in the UK is £224.99 ($276.10).
