Though we know that these registration doesn't necessary mean that 1 million users will buy the device still this is one of the best response received by a Huawei smartphone. The recently launched Honor 8 reached 5 million registrations within first four days so Honor 6X has been yet another successful launch up till now.
However, as the smartphone has only been launched in China so these registrations are mainly from that region. Registrations for the Honor 6X will continue till 24th October and the device will be released on the next day i.e. 25th October.
