Huawei Honor 6 officially launched in Europe from £249.99


Huawei have taken their popular Honor range of phones for a trip to Europe where the Honor 6 is now on sale for just £249.99.

Just like the version sold over in China, the EU version of the Huawei Honor 6 gets Huawei’s own octacore Kitin 920 processor which give the device bags of power. RAM is a generous 3GB, and there is 16GB internal memory but room for a micro SD card.

Cat 6 LTE gives the phone access to faster 4G data connections, plus a 3100mAh battery should have you running all day long.

Huawei have gone down the Chinese style of selling the Honor 6 meaning the device is up for sale unlocked and off contract, making the asking price all the more impressive. Both black and white version of the phone are available and you can order the Huawei Honor 6 through Amazon in a few days time.

    “a 310mAh battery should have you running all day long.”

    Which “genius” is responsible for the FDD-LTE-band choice…

    No B20/800 MHz …

      B1, B3, B7, B20 are all supported.

        on amazon.co.uk, it shows:
        (4G Global) FDD-LTE : B1 (2100 MHZ)/B3 (1800 MHZ)… which is weird as B3=800MHz & B20=1800MHz. Am I wrong?

          That must be the L02/L12 model, which is China Unicom version basically. The L04 released for international market supports all the bands i refereed.

        Thanks

          Yes. Firstly the description on Amazon does have a couple of inaccuracies like it being dual sim too, which is not true either.

          But anyway i will give a brief rundown of different models.

          Honor 6 comes in following models :

          > China Unicom (have to buy through resellers online)

          1) L02 – 16gb internal memory (+ expandable ofcourse like all models), dual sim (but only one sim slot supports 4g, while other sim slot is just 2g).

          2) L12 – 32gb internal, NFC, dual sim.

          Both these model have the following 4g freq support : B1 & B3 for FD LTE, and B41 TD-LTE

          And for these models you get the latest UI Emui 3.0 ready to download or OTA.

          > China Mobile version (TD-SCDMA). They are L01, L11 models.

          > Then there is the international version, L04 model – its 16gb, single sim.

          You get Emui2.3 version of UI, while Emui3.0 is said to come in January 2014 (but might get leaked roms earlier)

          And 4g support for L04 is B1, B3, B7, B20 for FDLTE. This model is already released in India, Malaysia, and Russia prior to recent announcement in rest of Europe. So you can see the specs details on the following sites:

    Really great device for the price. I love the fact that chinese manufacturers increasing their presence in the EU to give some tough competition for samsung and others.

    This is great news! Honor 6 came to sale in Finland too! Just ordered from it Elisa.fi by paying 299 euros, which I think is a bargain price for such great specs.
