Huawei Honor 6 hits the sweet spot in performance and price

After months of speculation, Huawei has taken the wraps off its new Honor 6 flagship phone which comes with top-of-the-line hardware and backed by an impressive price. This high-end phone will retail for $359.90 and above in China and it will hit the market in two variants.

It’s quite surprising to see the company come up with a new flagship device considering that it launched the Ascend P7 just last month. The Huawei Honor 6 has been leaked multiple times and almost everything about the handset is known. Well, there are a few undisclosed details which we will cover in this post. Specs-wise, the new addition clearly outperforms the latter phone and it has a rather stylish design with a spin texture on the rear panel made through a 6-layer high composite technology.

The display on the front is a 5-inch panel from JDI proffering 1080p visuals at 445ppi pixel density. There’s a 5MP camera as well, while the rear sport the same highly praised Sony-made 13MP snapper that’s found on the OnePlus One and Oppo Find 7 smartphones. The main highlight here is the processor which is an octa core Hi-Silicon Kirin 920 chipset with quad Cortex A7s, quad Cortex A15 and Mali T628 MP4 graphics, capable of delivering performance at par with the new Snapdragon 805.
