Video: Honor 6X Unboxing and Hands-on

Honor announced its latest device for the US market today during the first official day of CES for media, but it’s not exactly a new phone. Introduced back in October, the Honor 6X has been a Chinese exclusive for a couple of months now, but starting tomorrow (January 4), anyone in the US can pre-order the device, with official launch set for January 10. 

For specs, the device features a 5.5″ FHD display, Huawei-made Kirin 655 octa-core processor, 3GB RAM (there will also be a 4GB model in select markets), 32GB and 64GB storage configurations, microSD support, fingerprint reader, dual rear-facing camera setup (12MP + 2MP), 8MP front-facing camera, microUSB, 3340mAh battery, and EMUI 4.1 which is based on Android “Marshmallow.”

Two important things to note: Honor states that the phone will soon receive an update to EMUI 5.0 (the company’s skin/OS based on Android “Nougat”), plus the phone does not have USB Type-C. While the inclusion of microUSB is not the worst offense, it is quite odd, considering this is now 2017 and we just assumed all new phones would have Type-C.

On the super upside, the device starts at just $249, which seems like a crazy-good price for what you receive. No, there’s nothing too flashy about the device, like water resistance, but it’s just $249. That’s unlocked and ready to work on any major GSM network across the country.

If this device is of interest, you can pre-order it via Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy, and Honor’s website starting tomorrow. Additionally, Honor will host a “flash sale” on January 10 that will have the phone priced at just $199.

    I refuse to buy a phone with these stupid protruding camera rings. Ugh.

    • Armaan Modi

      come on… even OP3 has that.

      • ChrisI

        And I don’t own it.

        • Armaan Modi

          But will you not buy a great phone if it has a protuding camera?

          • ChrisI

            No. Because it tells me they also skimped on battery size when they could have just added 1.5mm to the phone depth, gave it a flush backside, and added 1000mah to the battery.
            A protruding camera tells me they care more about form than function and appealing to this ‘thinner is better’ mantra.

    Sticking with microUSB on cheap phones makes sense. Changing out cables on what’s likely multiple charging points is not an insignificant expense.

    And “current year” is still the laziest and weakest reason for anything.
