CES 2017: Honor 6X Officially Unveiled For US And Europe

Honor 6X

Honor 6X today officially unveiled at CES 2017, a budget-friendly device which comes with quite amazing specs. The device will be available in US and European countries and pre-orders begins today. 

The device flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display screen with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, and to get the detailed opinion about the quality of display we need to get our hands over the phone. In terms of design the phone is a metal creature of balanced proportions and measures in at 8.2mm in thickness (not the thinnest around) but the device got fairly reasonable bezels around. 

Under the hood there’s an octa-core Kirin 655 chipset with four high-performance cores running at clock speed of 2.1GHz and four battery-savvy cores clocked at up to 1.7GHz. The processor is couple with 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB built in storage option which is expandable via microSD. It’s also come to hear that in US initially only the 32GB variant will be offered, while in Europe both variants will be available for purchase. 

Camera section includes a dual-lens camera system which makes it possible to adjust the focus on a picture after capturing it. This means it will create a fake bokeh effect on the background which is out focus to let the subject which is in focus stand out more. It’s a cool effect, albeit. 

On the rear side there’s a 12-mega pixel snapper with f/2.0 aperture and there’s also secondary camera which captures depth information and it’s a basic, 2-megapixel unit. The camera can record video up to 1080p at 30fps and there’s no support for 4K video. And for taking beautiful selfies company has embedded an 8-mega pixel snapper on the front side.

To keep the lights of the device on Honor has embedded a 3,340mAh of battery which is really nice considering the display size. Moreover company claims it can squeeze out a full, 2-day longevity out of it: the company warns that actual battery life is a variable that depends on many factors, but it’s still a reference number that impresses.

Price & Availability: As far as the price and availabilty of Honor 6X is concerned it will go on sale starting January 15th, already up for pre-orders. The device can be purchased from company’s online portal Hihonor.com/us and can also be bought from other retailers including Amazon, Best Buy and NewEgg.

As we mentioned above it’s a budget friendly device, so it won’t effect your pocket much as the price for Honor 6X is set at the lucrative $250.

The device is already up for grabs in Europe and can be purchase from Vmall.eu, Honor’s official store for European countries, as well as from Amazon.
