HUAWEI releases its mid-range smartphone, the HONOR 6X, in India
In a recent press event in New Delhi, Honor, the sub-brand of HUAWEI, announced the launch of HONOR 6X. It was first released in China in October 2016, with a dual camera setup on the back being one of its highlights. Now, it’s on sale in India.
The HONOR 6X was launched in China in three memory configurations, but in India, it comes in two variants – a lower spec’d version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and a higher spec’d version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. While the device comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, the company has shared that a beta of EMUI 5.0 with Android 7.0 Nougat is available already with a public roll-out in Q2 2017.
The HONOR 6X has been launched to represent dual benefits of great price point coupled with best in class features. Also, we have designed HONOR 6X,keeping in mind the youth of India and their discerning needs. The phone is equipped to fill the position of a phone with flagship features in the budget segment and will help our consumers to share, explore, and enjoy life to the fullest.– Peter Zhai, President, HUAWEI India Consumer Business Group
