Huawei has been the fastest growing handset manufacturer in the world, but despite that the company didn't manage to come up with a stellar product for the longest time possible. However, things changed with the coming of the Ascend P7 earlier this year , and now the firm has come up with yet another ‘masterpiece' that might entirely shift focus from the Samsung Galaxy S5 and other glorified phones launched recently.
Meet the Huawei Honor 6: the latest high-end handset that may change your view on the Chinese smartphone makers forever. Huawei on Tuesday officially unveiled the Honor 6, previously codenamed as "Mulan". It doesn't boast a razor sharp QHD resolution display, but the 5-inch FHD panel from JDI seemed to be an eye catcher. The company has managed to shrink the side bezels to 2.36mm, while the device measures 6.5mm in terms of thickness.
Spec-wise, the Honor 6 should be comparable to other fancy premium phones in the same league. It is powered by the company's home-baked Kirin 920 chipset, which is said to be comparable to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 chipset. The new Kirin 920 supports LTE Cat. 6 for up to 300Mbps downlink speeds. Other than that, the phone runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Emotion UI 2.3. The high-end device offers a 3GB RAM and either 16GB or 32GB expandable storage, via a microSD card slot.
On the imaging front, there's a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with a dual-LED Flash. Also add a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Connectivity options on the phone are as follows: Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS and more.
As usual, Huawei still hasn't given exact information around the phone's retail availability and pricing. It appears that consumers have to wait a little longer to get a concrete update on the handset's availability for the Indian market.
