Huawei s sub-brand Honor is set to finally launch its Honor 6X smartphone on January 24. Highlight of the smartphone is its dual rear camera setup, which has been seen on a few premium devices such as the iPhone 7 Plus and LG G5. However, at a price point of around Rs 13,999, the Honor 6X is touted to be one of the most affordable smartphones in India to offer dual rear-camera setup.

Although the smartphone has been already launched in home-country China where it retails at Yuan 999 for the base model (Rs 9,880 approximately) and goes up to 1599 Yuan for the most premium model (Rs 15,800 approximately). In October last year, the Honor 6X had been previewed in India without details about its pricing and availability. However, the company has now started sending out media invites for new information which will revealed on January 24, 2017 about what it calls the Swag Phone .

The Honor 6X has also been announced at the ongoing CES 2017 where the company launched the smartphone for international markets. While we have already reviewed the Honor 6X, let us run you through the smartphone s specifications and features for more clarity.

Honor 6X specifications and features

The Honor 6X boasts a range of improvements over its predecessor Honor 5X. It features a metallic finish and sports a 5.5-inch full HD display with 2.5D curved glass on top. Under its hood is Huawei s own Kirin 655 octa-core chipset clocked at 4 X 2.1GHz + 4 X 1.7GHz speeds and coupled with Mali T830-MP2 GPU and 3GB/4GB of RAM which is further paired with 32GB of internal storage or 64GB of internal storage respectively.

Camera being the highlight of the smartphone, there is a vertical setup of 12-megapixel auto-focus snapper with PDAF support along with a secondary 2-megapixel snapper for achieving depth of field and DSLR-like bokeh effect. The rear camera is capable of video recording in up to 1080p resolution. For selfies, it comes with an 8-megapixel front snapper.

The smartphone is powered by a 3,340mAh battery with support for fast charging and Type-C. Other features include a rear fingerprint sensor that is claimed to unlock the device in 0.3 seconds. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots (hybrid setup), 4G with VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0-based EMUI 4.1, which will soon be updated to EMUI 5.0.

When launched in India last year, its predecessor Honor 5X was priced at Rs 12,999. It comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB storage with microSD card slot. It further includes a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Keeping the phone ticking is a 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. The smartphone further comes with a fingerprint scanner.

Although there is no hint about the pricing of the Honor 6X when launched in India, given its CES debut with prices starting from $249 (Rs 17,000 approximately), it will be interesting to see which variant the company launches in the country given that the dual camera setup – once a premium feature has now trickled into the mid-range segment with smartphones such as the Coolpad Cool 1 offering similar capabilities at a price of Rs 13,999.
