Honor-6X-Header

Honor has launched the Honor 6X at a press event in China. The new handset, successor to the low-cost Honor 5X, features dual rear cameras, a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a metal unibody.

Honor has made a name for itself manufacturing budget Android handsets that deliver on quality and the 6X looks like it will maintain the trend. Other specs include a Kirin 655 processor, 3 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage space, and a 3,340 mAh battery.

As for the cameras, the rear shooters provide a 12 MP and 2 MP sensor, while the front camera houses an 8 MP sensor. The 6X dimensions come in at 150.9 x 72.6 x 8.2 mm and it weighs 162 grams. The device can be used in dual-SIM or SIM-plus-microSD card (up to 128 GB) configurations and also arrives with Huawei’s Emotion UI 4.1 (based on Android Marshmallow) out of the box.

The device will be available in gold, silver or gray color variants at launch at 999 Yuan (~$150) for the 3 GB RAM/32 GB internal storage model, 1299 Yuan (~$190) for the 4 GB/32GB version and 1599 Yuan (~$240) for 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage space.

The Honor 6X will go on sale in China on October 25. Price and availability details for the US aren’t yet known, but as the Honor 5X made it stateside, there’s every chance that the 6X could also.
