Huawei launched the Honor 6 – a flagship level smartphone – mid-year and already it is coming up with an upgraded version, the Honor 6 Plus, which already showed up at China’s TENAA (their version of the FCC). At a glance, you can see that it is carrying the same design language as its predecessor – including those slim sexy bezels that the Honor 6 was hyped for.
The TENAA does not usually publish information the way the FCC does it, and so we usually have to sift through the spec lists to get to some useful information. There seems to be two models of the Honor 6 Plus – the PE-UL00 and the PE-TL10. At first inspection, there seems to be no difference in the specs – so we might assume that these are one and the same phone, but designated for different carriers or networks.
The Honor 6 Plus still retains the Full HD 1920x1080 resolution of its predecessor, but the screen size is now bigger by a half-inch at 5.5 inches. The “phone standards” include LTE, so we can only hope that it would at least include the groundbreaking Cat6 LTE that the Honor 6 originally had for download speeds of up to 300Mbps. The Honor 6 Plus also carries 3GB of RAM, although the TENAA listing sadly does not list what type and brand of processor it carries.
Note that there seems to be two camera modules at the back. It would be interesting how Huawei executes the usage of these modules. The new phone comes in 16GB and 32GB versions, both expandable with 64GB microSD. Hopefully we will have some solid information soon about the processor, launch date, and the pricing of the new smartphone.
