It looks like dual-camera setups aren’t exclusive to midrange and premium phones anymore. The Honor 6X, which falls under Huawei’s Honor sub-brand, has the trendy feature, and it doesn’t cost a fortune.
Released earlier today in China, the latest entry in Huawei’s fast-growing lineup looks a lot like a midranger, but the price says otherwise.
Here’s what we have: a 5.5-inch 1080p display with 2.5D curved glass, octa-core Kirin 655 processor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow with an EMUI 4.1 skin, 8-megapixel front-facing shooter, and a pair of camera lenses on the rear, consisting of 12-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors.
Pricing is a little trickier, but not all that complicated. The variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage goes for RMB 999 ($150), the version with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage retails for RMB 1,299 ($193), and forking over RMB 1,599 ($237) gets you the best one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
All of them are good deals, especially when you consider that even the cheapest model comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back, 4G LTE connectivity, and a large 3340mAh battery with fast charging.
Pre-orders for the Honor 6X begin today in China, and it’ll become commercially available on October 25. Colors are the usual affair, consisting of rose gold, gold, silver, gray, and blue.
This isn’t Huawei’s first attempt at mainstreaming the dual-camera feature. After implementing it on the well-received P9 flagship, the Chinese company equipped it on the $400 Honor 8 that launched in the US last month.
