Huawei has launched a new smartphone in India. Huawei Honor 6 which was launched Globally in August this year is now making an entry into Indian market. It is priced Rs. 20,000, and will be exclusively available from Flipkart from October 6.
Honor 6 comes with 4G LTE connectivity option along with 2G and 3G network connectivity. It features a 5 inch LCD capacitive touch display that offers full HD (1920 x 1080p) resolution. The display supports 10 fingers multi-touch, and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The display offers 16 M color depth and ~445 ppi pixel density.
Huawei Honor 6 is powered by Huawei’s own octa core CPU along with 3 GB of RAM. Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 920 chipset is used in this device. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage memory expandable using microSD card up to 64 GB.
The device comes with a big 3100 mAh battery. Strangely, the phone is incredibly light, and weighs just 130g. The overall dimension ranges 139.6 x 69.7 x 7.5 mm. It is also a slim phone. The rear camera comes with 13 MP sensor and the front camera comes with 5 MP sensor. Honor 6 runs Android v4.4 Kitkat OS with Huawei Emotion UI 2.3 on top.
Honor 6 is a dual SIM phone that comes with connectivity features like WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB port. NFC, however is absent in this device. The device will not face much challenge from other devices in this price segment, as most of them comes without 4G LTE connectivity. 4G LTE will become more accessible in coming days in India. Being cost effective compared to 2G and 3G, 4G connectivity will become more popular in coming months, and the phones with 4G connectivity will be in huge demand in India.
