Huawei launches Honor 6X at CES 2017


LAS VEGAS: Well, all of us did talk about the fact that Huawei would introduce a new smartphone at Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2017 with dual rear cameras. It is called the Honor 6X and yes it comes with not one, but two rear cameras.

The smartphone has 12 MP + 2MP rear cameras (for better photography with cleaner focus and wide aperture mode) along with an 8MP front facing camera. The same set has been seen on other smartphones as well and have done somewhat well in the Indian market.

Under the hood the Honor 6X smartphone is powered by a Kirin 655 Octa Core CPU, 3GB RAM and a 3,340 mAh battery. As far as storage is concerned it will be available in two options — 32 or 64 GB on board storage options are available with the choice to expand it further by 64 GB (with the help of a microSD card). The OS is still last years. This one has an Android 6.0, but the OTA update to the next version has not been ruled out.

The Honor 6X is priced at USD 249 and should come to India very soon. The smartphone comes in three colours – gold, silver and grey. The phone is wrapped in metal finish body and looks quite nice. Also, the Honor 6X has a 5.5-inch touchscreen with 2.5D curved glass on top. A fingerprint sensor has also been added to the mix.

The smartphone runs on Emotion UI (EMUI) 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is expected to get Android 7.0 Nougat as part of EMUI 5.0 soon. The company recently rolled out the new OS version to its Honor 8 as well. The UI is also said to come with improved power management system and new power saving modes among other features.
