After appearing in TENAA’s database last week, the honor 6X is now official. This successor to the honor 5X brings with it a few notable hardware changes, including a dual-camera system and a faster processor; all for an equivalent price tag to its predecessor.
Much like its predecessor, the honor 6X has a metal construction; it also has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, and it has a slightly bigger 3,340mAh battery as well. Other than that, the 6X is packing a new HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor, and more interestingly: a dual-camera system.
However, the honor 6X’s dual-camera setup isn’t like the one found in the honor 8. Instead, the 6X has a 12MP camera paired with a 2MP shooter; the latter provides depth information and simulates background blur. Other specifications of the honor 6X are 3 or 4GB of RAM, two choices of expandable internal storage (32GB and 64GB), an 8MP front-facing shooter, as well as Emotion UI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
As is always the case with honor devices, the honor 6X has very competitive price tags: the base model – packed with 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM – retails at 999 Chinese yuan (about RM620), while the higher-end model with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM goes for 1,599 yuan (approximately RM995). The honor 6X is now available for pre-order in China.
Considering the fact that the honor 6X retails at the same price as the honor 5X – when it was launched, that is – in China, there’s a very good chance the 6X will be priced like its predecessor here in Malaysia. For now, it still remains to be seen if the honor 6X will be launched here.
