Huawei Honor 6X lands in India with dual cameras in tow

Huawei Honor 6X

Huawei’s dual camera-toting Honor 6X has officially landed in India a couple of months after it first came out in China. Registrations for its February 2 Amazon flash sale kick off today and will be open until January 31.

The Honor 6X has arrived in two variants in India. One contains 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM at Rs 12999 and the other packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM at Rs 15999. Huawei’s serving up a number of offers to attract buyers including an additional 10% cashback on SBI credit cards, 14GB of free Airtel data on select recharges, and 80% off on Kindle eBooks subject to a limit of Rs 300.

The main topic of discussion when it comes to the Huawei phone is its twin-snapper setup consisting of a 12MP and 2MP lens. The combination paves the path for users to do things like change the focus of a photo after it’s been clicked or use a bokeh effect to bring the foreground to the center of attention and blur the background.
