Huawei’s dual-camera smartphone will be arriving in the next few weeks
Remember Huawei’s Honor 6 Plus, that innovative, dual-camera toting smartphone we first saw in Beijing last December? Well, if you’ve been pining for it the dual-camera wonder, your wait is almost over – we’ve confirmed with a source that the new phone will be released pretty soon, probably in the next weeks. More importantly, we found out that it’ll come with a price tag of just Php 17490, which puts it squarely in mid-range Android territory.
Huawei Honor 6 Plus
- 1.8GHz octa-core Kirin 925 processor
- 2GB/3GB of RAM
- 5.5-inch JDI full HD IPS-NEO screen, 1920 x 1080
- 16/32GB of storage, expandable via microSD
- Dual 8-megpixel rear camera with dual LED flash
- 5-megapixel front camera
- Dual-SIM, dual LTE
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC
- 3600mAh battery
- Android 4.4 KitKat with Emotion UI
That’s a pretty aggressive price for a phone that’s essentially a smaller Mate7. It has the rougly the same hardware as the bigger, 6-inch phablet and if our experience with the Mate7 is anything to go by, then the Honor 6 Plus will offer stiff competition to the already crowded sub-20K smartphone market.
