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.

Huawei Honor 6 hands on photos
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.
