honor has launched its latest affordable smartphone in China, the honor 6A. In comparison to its predecessor, the honor 6A sports a number of improvements, including a metal construction as well as a different family of processor.
Unlike the honor 5A – which was equipped with Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 620 processor – honor has opted for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor to power the honor 6A. Aside from that, it’s interesting to see honor moving back to a 5-inch 720p display with the 6A; its predecessor had a 5.5-inch display instead.
Build quality is one area honor has improved with the honor 6A as well. Instead of a plastic back panel, the 6A now sports a metal body, although there appears to be plastic bits at the top and bottom parts of the back panel. Nonetheless, the metal construction should give the 6A a more solid – and reassuring – build quality.
Other specifications of the honor 6A include 2GB or 3GB of RAM, two choices of storage capacities (16GB and 32GB), a 3,020mAh battery, 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras, as well a Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
The honor 6A will be open for pre-order in China tomorrow on the 25th of May. The most affordable 16GB model with 2GB of RAM will retail at only 799 Chinese yuan (about RM500), while the 32GB variant with 3GB of RAM goes for 999 yuan (approximately RM625).
