Honor Tab X6 and Tab 6 – Specifications

The Honor Pad 6 sports a 10.1-inches FHD+ display but the X6 has a watered-down 9.7-inch display. The resolution has also taken a hit on the X6 with 1200×800 pixels.

Powering both the tablets is Huawei’s Kirin 710A SoC which is recently the first mass-produced SoC by Chinese foundry SMIC after the US ban on Huawei. Despite being built on the older 14nm process, it should get the day-to-day tasks done on the tablet with ease when combined up to 4GB of RAM.

As for the optics, there is a single 5MP shooter without any LED flashlight on the back and a 2MP sensor will handle the selfie and video calling duties at the front. A dual-speaker system on the top and bottom portion will make use of Huawei’s Histen Audio 6.1 technology for better output.

Powering all this is a 5,100mAh battery which can be juiced up via the USB-C port at the bottom. There is a power button and volume rockers on the top right. The tablets come in both Wi-Fi only and LTE variants and have a micro-SD card for future expansion of storage. 

The Honor Tab 6 and X6 will run Magic UI 3.1 based on Android 10 out-of-the-box. Additionally, the tablet-6 series also supports Honor’s Magic Pen stylus and come with apps like Huawei Education centre and Children’s paradise pre-installed.

    Any links on preorder? Also are you sure about stylus support? it’s way too cheap for that. The stylus is 600 yuan which is almost half of the price of the tablet! unfair
