As of now, Honor 6X runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI v4.1 on top.
Huawei unveiled its new budget offering Honor 6X yesterday at an event at CES 2017. During the press conference, the company confirmed that the device will taste Android 7.0 Nougat update sometime in 2nd Quarter of 2016. Apart from that, the new update will also bring Huawei's new EMUI 5.0 which was first launched with Mate 9 last year.
As of now, Honor 6X runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI v4.1 on top. Other than that, it comes with a 5.5-inch (1080x1920 pixels) full-HD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass protection. On the inside, the device is powered by a Kirin 655 octa-core (4 cores at 2.1GHz + 4 cores at 1.7GHz) chipset with Mali-T830MP2 GPU paired with 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage or 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage. In both the cases, the internal storage is expandable via microSD card.
Coming to the optics, which is the highlight of this device, the Honor 6X sports a dual-camera set up at the back with a combination of a 12-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor. The set up comes with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), LED flash etc. At the front, there is an 8-megapxel sensor for selfies. The rear camera setup on the Honor 6X is more like the one we saw in HTC One M8. The set up lets you dig into and play with shallow depth of field and one can change the focus of an image post clicking it. For the juice, there is a 3340 mAh battery inside.
The device is priced at $249 (approx. Rs 17,000) and is expected to hit the Indian smartphone market by the end of this month.
