CES Update: New Smartphone Honor 6X is Unveiled

Jan 4, 2017

Honor has developed a bit of mindshare in Android land, and with good reason; no one appreciates getting a lot for relatively little like Android users. Devices like the Honor 5X looked to fulfil that premise.

We hear that the Huawei imprint has just unveiled a new smartphone at the ongoing CES 2017.

Dubbed the Honor 6X, the phone is supposed to be a budget unit with worthy specs at a budget price.

Specs? It a 1920 x 1080p full HD display set in a 5.5 inch screen (that is itself part of a 5.9 x 3 x 0.3 inch frame), and weighs 5.71 ounces. Under the hood, it packs a Kirin 655 Octa-Core processor, and the American-bound variant has 32 GB ROM and 3 GB of RAM… plus external storage capability.

Then there is the camera; 12 MP in the rear and 8 MP up front. It has a 3340 mAh battery, and boasts 23 hours of talk time and 600 hours of standby time. It comes with skinned Android 6.0.

Metal body? Check. Fingerprint sensor? Yep.

We should note that yes, it has a headphone jack. Just sayin’.

Price? $249, and folks can begin to partake of this goodness on January 15th, via Best Buy, Newegg, Amazon and Hihonor.com/us.

Preorders start on January 4th. Honor will also be offering early bird specials and flash sale discounts.
