Huawei under its sub-brand Honor is working on a mid-range smartphone dubbed as the Honor 6C. The alleged smartphone has reportedly leaked in images and it is expected to go official in China soon. There is no word on the smartphone coming to India, but a launch can be expected to follow after the smartphone is released in China.
According to GizmoChina, the Honor 6C surfaced on Weibo revealing key details. From the images, similarities between the Honor 6C and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A have started to be drawn. If images of the purported Honor 6C are anything to go by, the front panel of the smartphone does look identical to Redmi Note 5A, unveiled earlier this month in China. The Honor 6C has thick bezels at the top and bottom of the display, which runs thin across the sides. The metal-unibody designed smartphone has the fingerprint sensor mounted beneath the rear camera.
Since the Honor 6C was first made official alongside Honor 8 Pro in April this year in the European market, specifications and features of the smartphone are already out in open. The Honor 6C currently retails for Euro 229 (approximately Rs 17,000). In comparison, the Redmi Note 5A released in China priced at RMB 699 (Rs 7,000) ALSO READ: Honor V9 Mini with dual-camera, slimmer body spotted online
