Huawei Honor 6 launched with impressive specs and pricing


After Huawei’s huge success with its Honor range, which combined affordable prices with good specs, it was just logical for Huawei to keep the Honor range alive and better than ever with a flagship killer Huawei Honor 6.

Just over the past few hours, Huawei launched a number of new devices to compliment the Honor line up, but it is the Huawei Honor 6 which really stole the show. Every bit a flagship, the Honor 6 boasts a Huawei developed Hisilicon K920 octacore processor running big.LITTLE architecture (4 x Cortex A7 and 4 x Cortex A15) similar to the Exynos processors from Samsung. The SoC boasts a Mali T628 GPU and brings LTE support to the phone. Huawei are running their own custom Emotion UI 2.3 ROM based on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, optimisation is said to be spot on, and with that powerful processor and 3GB RAM onboard we should think so too.

There are some really nice stand out features to the Huawei Honor 6 the RAM, processor and custom ROM are some, but others include CAT 6 LTE support, up to 32GB of internal memory and an SD card slot, 5 mega-pixel front camera and Sony IMx214 13 megapixel rear with dual LED flash. A 3100mAh battery is a generous addition too, especially considering the (relatively) small 5-inch display and 1920 x 1080 resolution.

The Huawei Honor 6 will start at 1999 Yuan for the 16GB rising to 2299 Yuan for the 32GB model, with the first batch of phones going on sale in China on 1st July.

    Hmmm… This might cause a price reduction for Xiaomi Mi3 16GB and 64GB, don’t you think? 🙂

        Where did you get that info from ? They might eventually release the supportable ones, but the first sales might be the China mobile or telecom support and not unicom.

          You are right . First batch will be TDD LTE / TD SCDMA compatible only but soon will support WCDMA and FDD LTE.

          32 Gb rom version will support dual sim and NFC too. So maybe better wait a little more.

            Okay seen a post on weibo explaining. There is going to be China mobile and China unicom versions, and each going to have a standard and high end version (with NFC and 40000+ antutu score). The release date for high end version not yet known.

    Giant bezel on the bottom and NO capacitive touch buttons?!?!? On-screen buttons instead? -_-

    • Qidamin

      yeah too bad

    • Niels Rademaker

      looks worse than it is. the screen to body ratio is > 75% like the LG G2 and G3. If you root it you can shrink the on-screen buttons or replace them with pie controls or something else like it anyway.

    • Faux-News

      Not a giant. The bottom bezel is similar to that on LG G3. Having the navigation on the absolute buttom is a strain on hand movement on a 139mm phone. You hold the phone with one hand, and your thumb should be straight across the navigation button for perfect experience. If the thumb has to lower even further from that one hand grip, it gets strained.

      And not to worry about navigation buttons taking screen estate as their OS always had an hide nav bar option that gives an tiny arrow on the corner that lets you hide the bar.

      Yeah touchscreen button is the dealbreaker for me too. Too bad Huawei.

    Holy Christ!

    I think this beats the crap out of the OnePlus One. Even price-wise!!

            Yes. On the images (not on gizchina) you can see there are three slots.

    Is it likely that other ROMs would be available and developed actively for the Honor 6? Like MIUI or Cyanogenmod?

    I only see the China Mobile version on JD.COM. Has a Unicom version been released yet? For those of us in China, where can a Unicom unit be purchased?
