What We Know About the Huawei Honor 6 Plus So Far

by Linus 0

We all heard that the Huawei is preparing to release the successor of the Honor 6 flagship – the Honor 6 Plus, which should feature an interesting choice of dual cameras on its back.

The latest teaser from Huawei on its Weibo account suggests some interesting features the device will have.


According to the latest teaser and some latest info from Chinese bloggers, the device’s launch date is confirmed again to be December 16th. What’s more interesting is that Huawei’s flagship is expected to have the “largest aperture on any smartphone” and very tough shell. What is more, it the shell of the device will have somehow different texture than other devices. Moreover, the flagship will have a very long (if not the longest battery life) on the smartphone, which “will definitely be better than the iPhone 6 Plus”. Furthermore, the Honor 6 Plus will feature the fastest smartphone camera in the world with the ability to quick capture photos at the blazing fast 0,5 seconds. Finally, the Huawei said that the device will have “several best world’s features” and left it for the fans to guess what is could be.

We should say that the latest info about the device makes us really intrigued and wants us to see the device in reality as soon as possible. Besides this teaser let’s take a look what we know more about the Huawei Honor 6 Plus.

The Hardware


This of of the previous teasers suggests that the device will feature very slim bezels, which is always a good thing and makes a device very appealing to look at.

There have been some previous leaks of hardware and we believe that it should be a real deal:


Above we can see an edge of the device and looks like that it will have a metal frame, which is kind of a trend recently by many manufacturers.



Above we see the white colour, which is similar to the one seen on the Honor 6.

The rest of the above pictures do not suggest much as the device is hidden in the case.



The above previous teaser suggested that the Huawei will use its latest home made HiSilicon’s Kirin 925 CPU chip, which is an octal-core chip run by big.LITTLE process, which has a maximum clock speeds of 2 GHz.

Another specs we know so far include a 5.5 inches display of Full-HD resolution (401 PPI), 3 GB of Ram, a generous pack of power of 3,500 mAh, the 8mpx front facing shooter,  and the already mentioned dual setup of back cameras of 8 mpx, which in our thinking should be used for bokeh effects (if we consider the HTC One M8 capabilities), but it may extend further. Finally, EMUI OS, which is based on Android 4.4.2 will be running the show.


Here are some pictures taken with the Honor 6 Plus showing some bokeh effects capabilities:

Price and Availability 

The price of this amazing upcoming device is expected to be 1999 Yuan or about $323, which makes it one of the best deals out there. Well, we have only a few days left to see if Huawei can steal the show and makes us want buying the device. The Huawei Honor 6 Plus is expected to be released soon in China. There is no info regarding international availability, but knowing the fact that Honor 6 was sold outside of China, we have high hopes with this device, too.
