Huawei has just announced the Honor 6 will be making its way to the UK and Europe. The handset was initially unveiled in June this year for a release in the company’s home market of China as well as other Eastern markets such as India.
Huawei’s Honor 6 comes with a octa-core Kirin920 chipset produced by the company itself. The CPU breaks down to a Quad-core Cortex-A15 clocked at 1.7 GHz and another quad-core Cortex-A7 clocked at 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7. There is also 3GB of RAM.
The Honor 6 has a 5in display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, creating an impressive pixel density of 445ppi. Dimensions for the handset come in at 139.6 x 69.7 x 7.5mm and it weighs 130g. Storage options include 16GB/32GB and it also has microSD support for cards up to 64GB.
The Honor 6 also comes with LTE CAT 6 technology, meaning it can theoretically handle LTE speeds of up to 300Mbps. Not that we'll be getting that kind of speed anytime soon in the UK! But, HEY, at least the handset is ready for when it does eventually happen.
Camera wise there’s a 13MP snapper on the back and 5MP sensor on the front. The Honor packs in an impressively-sized 3,100mAh capacity battery, which the company claims can handle around 48 hours of regular usage before requiring a top up. The handset is currently running Android 4.4.2 KitKat and it is expected to launch with the same software on board.
Here's what Huawei had to say about future Android updates, specifically Android L:
“Honor will provide periodical software upgrades as based on user needs along its Consumer to Business (C2B) Journey.” Yeah, we're not too sure what that means either. But we think it is fairly safe to assume the handset will receive Android Lollipop at some point… just don’t go holding your breath for one before the year’s out.
Paul is currently at the launch of the Huawei Honor 6 in Berlin; so expect a hands-on review to land later on this evening.
