Huawei chooses March 16 to launch Honor 6 Plus in India

The Huawei Honor 6 Plus smartphone has been out in China since December last year, but it’s only now that the company has decided to introduce it in India. This powerful device will be launched in the country on March 16, and that’s when we’re expected to get some information regarding its price and its release date.

The Huawei Honor 6 Plus acts as a successor the Honor 6 handset that was launched in September last year, exclusively through Flipkart. While it was originally being sold at Rs 19999, its retail value was later lowered down to Rs 17999 by its makers.

The Honor 6 Plus offers a larger display than its predecessor and changes things in the camera department as well. It has been equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p full HD monitor, while its rear surface plays home to dual 8MP snappers that serve a similar function to that of HTC’s Duo Camera setup. Surprisingly though, its front camera is also of 8MP resolution which is great news for selfie enthusiasts.
