Honor 6X Expected To Be Launched On January 24 In India
Huawei-brand Honor is all set to launch to launch the Honor 6X smartphone in India on January 24. Huawei has finally started sending out the invites for the India launch of its new smartphone. Though the invite doesn’t reveal the name or any specifications but as claimed by previous rumours, the device is likely to be the Honor 6X.
The Honor 6X was launched in China in October. The biggest highlight of the Honor 6X is its dual camera setup at the back with a combination of a 12-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor. The set up comes with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), LED flash etc. At the front, there is an 8-megapxel sensor for selfies. The rear camera setup on the Honor 6X is more like the one we saw in HTC One M8. The set up lets you dig into and play with shallow depth of field and one can change the focus of an image post clicking it.
The new Honor 6X smartphone features a 5.5-inch (1080×1920 pixels) full-HD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass protection; a Kirin 655 octa-core (4 cores at 2.1GHz + 4 cores at 1.7GHz) SoC, and a hybrid dual-SIM (Nano-SIM) card slot, with support for microSD cards (up to 128GB) in the second SIM card slot.
The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei’s Emotion UI 4.1 on top. The device is backed by a 3340 non-removable battery and comes with connectivity options such as 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and GPS/ A-GPS.
It sports a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel that the company claims can unlock the smartphone in 0.3 seconds. The Honor 6X measures 150.9×72.6×8.2mm and weighs 162 grams. The Honor 6X comes in Gold, Silver, Grey, Blue, and Rose Gold colour variants.
The three Honor 6X variants launched in China were – 3GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage, 4GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage, and 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage, priced at CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 9,900), CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs. 12,900), and CNY 1,599 (roughly Rs. 15,800) correspondingly.
