Huawei unveiled the Honor 6x at CES 2017. This handset will be launched in India pretty soon. Honor 6x comes with dual cameras on the back and it will come with an affordable price tag. Here is the first impression with unboxing video.

Honor 6x is packed inside a metal body. It is a dual SIM handset with 4G LTE support with VOLTE. 6x sports a 5.5 inch screen with 1080p resolution. Inside the hood it houses the Kirin 655 octa core processor (64 bit) coupled with Mali T830 GPU.

There is 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage space, plus micro SD card support. There are two cameras on the back a 13MP + 2MP. Front camera is 8MP. The dual cameras on the back can shoot near DSLR type images, similar to as seen on the Honor 8.

Honor 6x houses a 3340 mAh battery. The 6x price in U.S. is $249.99 (approx Rs. 17K) this one is with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. I guess in India the company might launch both 3GB / 32GB and 4GB / 64GB variant price could be under Rs. 20,000.

Build quality is good, camera looks promising – you can say this is a cheaper variant of Honor 8 with dual cameras, design is lot different. Honor 8 is more premium and this one more affordable.

  1. Dear Gogi Sir, YouTube reviews of Honor 6X are positive. Any news about Nokia ? in this year..

  2. Camera will be good but price will decide if it’s worth or not. Waiting for Redmi note 4. It should carry duel camera like the Chinese Redmi note pro model.

  3. If they price this 6x for around 17,000 or lower then it could sell, and waiting for Honor 6x review gogi.

  4. The battery on Honor 6X is 3340 mAh Mr Rana. I think not 3240 mAh. As written above kindly confirm n correct. Reported to get 7-8 hrs SOT, because of very power efficient Kirin 655.

  5. Front of Honor 6X should be full black, atleast, so that big bezel won’t look ugly.

  6. I for one am looking forward to introduction of this Honor 6X phone very eagerly, because of it’s likelyhood of having good camera performance vis a vis the Redmi Note 4 which too is coming soon. Looked a Cool 1, but mere 32 GB our of which only about 23 GB available and no memory expansion slot does not cut the ice for me.

    1. I am also eager to have hands on 6x. Xiomi and LeTV can’t even come near Huawei when it comes to quality. They can win only on papers.

      1. I totally disagree. Huawei phone may have best quality, but xiaomi phones are also very good when build quality and specs are concerned. You have to use xiaomi phones to understand this. I am sure you have not since you said rubbish like that.

          1. The Honor phones are slightly pricier these days. Xiaomi and Letv have a better SOC, while Honor have an under powered SOC when compared.

            Mali T830 is not even the best GPU out their on par or slightly below than Adreno 506.

            Redmi Pro is around 18 K but it has an Amoled panel with 64 Gb and 3 GB RAM.

      2. First learn the spelling of Xiaomi. I dont know about Letv but Xiaomi can anyday outperform Huawei in terms of innovation and affordablility

        1. Oops so sorry for spell mistake. Actually I was typing from my Redmi Note 3. And u know that the quality of RN3’s touch :))…. Lolz…But now I am typing from my Huawei Honor7. I hope this time there is no spell mistake. Good day.

          1. Lolz..that was a blatant lie bro…don’t tell you didn’t checked the spelling before posting 😉

          2. Do you have any answer to gogi bro’s list of top smartphones available in india. Open your eyes and check how many xiaomi phones are there in that list.

          3. You should buy physical keyboard then. Anyways enjoy your kindergarten ebook UI on your honor.

          4. Dear Jaywardhan…. I can understand your pain bro. Especially after the launch of H6x today @ 12999
            ???

  7. Duel camera will be present in most 15k phone this year. Huawei still not giving 4000mah battery atleast on Honor 6X which Xiaomi,Lenovo, coolpad are already giving in their phones.

    1. Only battery ratings don’t ensure a good backup. Its an overall package which decides the battery backup. Anyhow Huawei phones r best w.r.t battery juice.

      1. Wake up. Redmi 3s and redmi note 3 have far better battery backup than any other phone below 15k priced phones.

        1. First, use the phones under discussion bro, only then u would be able to say something regarding battery performance.

      2. Its having custom made Huawei chipset based on cortex A53 which is less powerful compared to A72 cores. So it cannot be more powerful then then SD 6xx series chipsets. So battery efficiency will depend on manufacturing of chipset that is 14nm or 20nm fabrication used by Huawei.

  8. This month lot of phones going to be launched. Vibe p2, honor 6x, cool 1 etc. Now the only resort is gogi ji’s opinion. By the way gogi bhai ru in CES?
