UK’s Three is all set to partner with China’s Huawei to exclusively offer the Honor 6 Plus in the country. Up until now, no operator ever offered a Huawei branded phone in the UK, and the Honor 6 Plus is set to be the first one.

The dual-rear camera enabled phone will be sold on both, contract and contract free models. While pricing details of the contract model aren’t clear yet, it is known that the phone will be available for £250 off-contract which isn’t, by a long shot, a bad price to pay for a phone with the camera capabilities of the Honor 6 Plus.

Gizchina News of the week

If you missed it, we also reviewed the phone here at GizChina earlier this year. It comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display, is powered by the Huawei Kirin 925 SoC (which houses a big.LITTLE CPU with 4x Cortex 15 cores and 4x Cortex A7 ones) along with 3GB of RAM to make for their flagship phone. It also features an 8 mega-pixel front facing camera and a massive 3,600mAh battery, all of which make the device a tough contender for the best flagship spot.

    Three has offered multiple Huawei handsets in the past, along with other carriers. I worked with them back when they had, I belive, the P6 on the go. If not the P6, one of the many phones with the same chassis design. Not hounding you, but Huawei have been available on carriers in the UK plenty of times.

        “Up until now, no operator ever offered a Huawei branded phone in the UK,”

        This is not the case. That is what it has to do with the article.
