Huawei announced a global launch of its mid-range Honor 6x smartphone which includes dual-lens camera technology and is aimed at young consumers.
Featuring a 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display, the Honor 6X boasts a full metal slim body (8.2mm thick) with 2.5D glass on the front and curved panel on the back.
Honor 6X features a dual-lens rear camera offering a wide aperture range (F/0.95-F/16). The main 12MP camera is responsible for the composition of the image while the 2MP camera provides depth of field information. Combined with the camera's wide aperture (F/0.95), the Honor 6X promises to produce professional-looking background blur to make your subjects stand out. This, coupled with a 1.25um pixel size, enables the Honor 6X to capture quality shots even in low-light settings. The Honor 6X's camera uses Phase Detection Auto Focus technology, which allows for an ultra-fast camera focus speed of 0.3 seconds.
The Honor 6X is fueled by a Kirin 655 boasting an octa-core architecture. Kirin 655 packs four cores clocked at 2.1GHz and another four at 1.7 GHz. Supported by 3GB/4GB RAM and an i5 co-processor, the Honor 6X allows you to game, browse and listen to music or run multiple apps at the same time. To further boost the agility of the device, the Honor 6X features Honor's Smart File System, which enhances Android's EXT4 system, preventing fragmentation and increasing the lifetime performance of the Honor 6X.
The smartphone is running on a 3340 mAh battery. With its 16nm CPU and power saving technology further reducing power consumption, the Honor 6X provides 2.15 days of usage and 1.54 days of heavy usage on a single full charge. On a single full charge, the Honor 6X allows you to enjoy up to 11.5 hours of video, 70 hours of music, or up to 8 hours of gaming. The Honor 6X is supported by an optimized proprietary 5V/2A charging technology.
The Honor 6X comes in three colors - gold, silver and gray. The 3GB variant of the device will be available for purchase from 4 January onwards in select markets, including the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, with other markets to follow soon.
The 4GB variant of the device will be available in the first quarter of 2017 in select markets. The recommended retail price of 4GB variant of the device will be USD 299.99 and EUR 299 respectively.
