Honor last week sent out invites for a January 24 launch of its Honor 6X dual-camera smartphone in India. While Honor’s invite specifically did not mention the name of the smartphone, Amazon India has. The Honor 6X will be sold exclusively on Amazon India and the online marketplace has confirmed the device will launch on January 24.
Honor 6X India pricing will be known once the device is launched on January 24.
Those interested in the Honor 6X can be notified about the launch by heading over to the Amazon India page. The Honor 6X was launched in China in October with the Huawei-owned Honor brand touting a dual-camera setup as the phone’s biggest highlight. The Honor 6X smartphone was launched starting at CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 9,900) and offered in Gold, Silver, Grey, Blue, and Rose Gold colour variants.
The Honor 6X sports a 5.5-inch (1080×1920 pixels) full-HD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass protection. Honor 6X is powered by a Kirin 655 octa-core (4 cores at 2.1GHz + 4 cores at 1.7GHz) SoC. The smartphone is offered in three variants – 3GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage, 4GB RAM/ 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage. The dual-SIM (Nano-SIM) card slots of Honor 6X support microSD cards (up to 128GB) in the second SIM card slot.
Coming back to the main highlight, the Honor 6X’s dual-camera setup features one 12-megapixel sensor that supports PDAF and a 2-megapixel sensor just below it. Over at the front, the Honor 6X comes with a 8-megapixel sensor for selfies. The fingerprint sensor at the back sits below the dual-camera setup. The company claims that the Honor 6X’s fingerprint sensor can unlock the smartphone in 0.3 seconds.
The Honor 6X connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and GPS/ A-GPS. The device is fitted with a 3340mAh battery with fast charging support. The new Honor 6X smartphone measures 150.9×72.6×8.2mm and weighs 162 grams.
