The Honor 6X went on sale with the operating system Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and the proprietary interface EMUI 4.1. There were several users who were a little disappointed waiting for the latest versions of the operating system and the layer of customization. Well, the Chinese manufacturer has confirmed the update to Android 7.0 Nougat and EMUI 5.0 as it had already anticipated in part during the presentation at CES 2017 held in Las Vegas in January. They announced that the update would arrive during the second quarter of this fiscal year and has thus been confirmed, although availability has now become official rather than March, as had been speculated in recent days. Here's more information about this smartphone.
The Honor 6X is a mid-range model that acts as a successor to the glorious Honor 5X, a cheap phablet that offered good performance and got good sales. The Honor 6X is equipped with a monocoque metal case with fingerprint scanner integrated in the back. It measures 150.9 x 76.2 x 8.2 mm and weighs 162 grams, has a display of 5.5 inches IPS with Full HD resolution (1,080 x 1,920 pixels) and 2.5D glass protection, is governed by a SoC Kirin 655 with a 16nm octa-core (2.1GHz 4x + 1.7GHz) processor, Mali-T830 MP2 GPU and 3 or 4 GB of RAM, as well as an internal 32/64 GB eMMC 5.1 expandable storage through microSD up to 128 GB. The rear camera is 12 megapixels (1.25 um pixels, PDAF) with extra help provided by a secondary 2-megapixel sensor (in the same rear camera).
As for the front camera, it offers LED flash and 8-megapixel sensor. Of course, it is a dual SIM smartphone (nano + nano + nano + microSD) and allows you to quickly navigate through 4G LTE networks, which includes Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n modules, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and a battery of 3.340 mAh with quick charge technology. In summary, a complete and good performance model that is also one of the cheapest smartphones, given the amount of specifications and especially the dual camera with double sensor on the back. A mid-range phablet that may interest all those who are not interested in expensive smartphones or do not have a budget to buy top-of-the-range smartphones.
