With CES 2017 opening its doors on 5 January, Huawei thought they would get things underway early with the launch of their Honor 6X smartphone in Las Vegas.
In a similar manner to Samsung’s new A series, the latest device from Huawei brings some top end specs to the budget market.
The 5.5 inch display Honor 6X comes with all-metal casing that Huawei says will is more scratch resistant to thanks to its double anodized coating.
It is powered by a Kirin 655 octa-core processor and has 32GB of internal storage.
The main camera is modelled on the iPhone 7 and is a dual-lens affair, which offers improved low light capabilities and super fast autofocus that will help you take near perfect shots.
Huawei, the market leader in smartphone fingerprint readers includes its trademark scanner on the rear of the device.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of the Honor 6X is the fact that it promises two days of battery life without the need for recharging.
The downside is that the Huawei’s version of Android is packed with manufacturers own apps that significantly slow down the device, something we found when we reviewed the Huawei P9.
Huawei say that their latest release will be available in Grey, Silver and Gold.
Although we’re still waiting to hear if the Honor 6X will be available in Thailand, the device is expected to retail in the region of US$250.
