Alongside the honor 8 Pro, honor also unveiled the successor to the honor 5C in Europe. Aptly dubbed the honor 6C, it brings with it several nifty upgrades, including a more premium-looking design, more RAM, as well as bigger internal storage.
Just like its predecessor, the honor 6C features a metal construction, but the 6C’s matte finish definitely looks more aesthetically-pleasing than the honor 5C’s glossy metal back. Other than that, the 6C also has 3GB of RAM coupled with 32GB of expandable storage; the honor 5C for our market only had 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
However, despite being the successor to the honor 5C, the honor 6C has a smaller and lower resolution 5-inch 720p display; the former had a 5.2-inch 1080p panel instead. Aside from that, it appears honor decided to forgo its own Kirin processor for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor with the honor 6C.
Rounding out the specifications of the honor 6C are a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter, a rear fingerprint sensor, a 3,020mAh battery, as well as EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
The honor 6C is definitely a mid-range smartphone, and its price tag reflects that: it retails for 229 euro (about RM1,085) in Europe. As for availability, the honor 6C is said to hit store shelves by the end of April 2017.
