The Honor 6X, which is also known as the Huawei GR5 2017 or Mate 9 Lite in some regions, is hitting India. But like all Honor-branded phones, there’s only one way to officially buy a unit.
In India’s case, the Honor 6X will be sold exclusively on Amazon India beginning February 2. That may be inconvenient to some, but the good news is it keeps the prices low.
The variant with 3GB of memory and 32GB storage will cost only INR 12,999 ($190), which is $60 cheaper than the suggested retail price in the US. And the 4GB/64GB version will retail for just INR 15,999 ($235), a whole $65 lower than the US equivalent.
Those are great deals for an all-around handset. We reviewed the Honor 6X recently, and found its build quality top-notch and its dual-camera design fun to use. Our only complaints were centered around the outdated software and hardware.
It’ll be available in the usual silver, gold, and gray color options. Our source also says there’ll be special offers during its official launch, so you might want to be online then.
