Huawei has announced the Honor 6X (again) - an affordable smartphone with dual rear camerasAt its press conference as part of the CES 2017 in Las Vegas Huawei unveiled the Honor 6X for the US market. The model has already been announced in China in October last year and now it makes it internationally. As a worthy successor of Honor 5X, Honor 6X provides some serious upgrades, while retaining an affordable price tag - USD 250 for the most basic 3/32GB variant. The device features an all-metal body with sleek design and a 5.5-inch FHD display with a 2.5D curved glass. Its 3340 mAh battery promises reasonable endurance (2 days on a single charge) and there's a dual rear camera setup. This time the two cameras work together to create a bokeh effect, instead of shooting in color and black and white. The first camera has a 12MP sensor, while the second has a 2MP sensor. The model is based on a Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 655 chipset with a 2.1GHz octa-core CPU and a 900MHz dual-core Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. They are coupled with 3 or 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 32 or 64GB of eMMC 5.1 internal memory. The model runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 on top. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (including Wi-Fi Bridge, which means you can share your Wi-Fi connection with up to 4 other devices), Bluetooth 4.1, 4G LTE networks, etc. In the second quarter of 2017 the device will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.0. It is available in gold, silver and gray colors.
