Huawei has unveiled its Honor 6 smartphone, making it the company’s second handset with 4G LTE connectivity launched this month, after the Honor 3C.
The company has announced that the new Huawei Honor 6 smartphone will be released on July 1 in China. For now, no details about global availability have been released.
GforGames reports the handset to also arrive in 16GB and 32GB inbuilt storage variants, priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 19,300) and CNY 2,299 (roughly Rs. 22,200) respectively. However, the Honor 6 (16GB) is currently listed as ‘out of stock’ on the Huawei Mobile Shop for $359.90 (roughly Rs. 21,697)
Codenamed as ‘Mulan’, the single-SIM supporting Huawei Honor 6 runs the relatively new Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box with Emotion 2.3 UI. It comes with a 5-inch (1080×1920 pixels) full-HD IPS display with a pixel density of approximately 440ppi. It is powered by an octa-core Kirin 920 processor (clock speed unspecified) coupled with Mali-T628 MP4 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
As mentioned above, the Honor 6 comes with 16GB and 32GB inbuilt storage variants, with the option of expansion via microSD card (up to 64GB). The Honor 6 sports an 13-megapixel rear autofocus camera, while there is a secondary 5-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard. The smartphone packs a 3000mAh battery.
The connectivity options available on the Huawei Honor 6 are GPS/A-GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE. It is worth noting that the handset is made of aluminium alloy structure that Huawei says keeps the temperature cooler (than conventional smartphones) by 4-6 degrees Celsius. The Honor 6 measures 139.8×68.8×6.5mm and weighs 135 grams.
Earlier this month, Huawei also launched two new mid-range smartphones, the Honor 3C 4G and Honor 3X Pro, in China.
