Huawei outs Enjoy 6s, teases Honor Magic concept phone

Huawei Enjoy 6s

Huawei’s officially launched the Enjoy 6s in China and priced the phone at CNY 1599 (roughly $232 or Rs 15730). The brand has also begun teasing a mysterious new smartphone called the Honor Magic.

Diving into the new Enjoy 6s first, the handset comes across as an updated version of its predecessor with a few changes here and there. Not much has changed in terms of design, with Huawei choosing to retain the previous variant’s style for the most part except for slight modifications to the new smartphone’s back and a thinner profile.

Internal memory has been doubled to 32GB, while the processor has gone from a MediaTek SoC to a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 CPU. One significant downgrade appears in the form of the battery compartment, with Huawei swapping out the Enjoy 6’s 4100mAh unit for a 3020mAh one in the 6s.
