In addition to the Honor 8 Pro, Huawei will launch the budget Honor 6C as a 5-inch cutdown version of the Honor 6X. Core features include a Snapdragon 435 SoC with 3 GB RAM and a potential 720p AMOLED panel according to sources.

The entry-level Honor 6C will directly supplant the outgoing Honor 5C when it launches later this month. Core specifications include:

  • 5.0-inch 720p display
  • 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 435 SoC
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 32 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD support
  • 3020 mAh internal battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow w/ EMUI 4.1
  • 13 MP rear + 5 MP front f/2.2 cameras
  • 138 g

Unfortunately, the Honor 6C will ship with the same version of Android Marshmallow as the 5C instead of the more recent Android Nougat. Its display will also be smaller than the Honor 5C (5.0-inches vs. 5.2-inches) and with a lower native resolution as well (720p vs. 1080p). Interestingly, some sources are listing the Honor 6C as having a 720p AMOLED display while others are saying a 720p IPS display. If the former turns out to be true, then the 6C should sport superior black levels than its predecessor and will be one of the most inexpensive smartphones with an AMOLED panel.

The smartphone will feature an aluminum design and a rear fingerprint sensor with the same Silver, Gold, and Gray color options as its older counterpart. Huawei unveiled the Honor 6C alongside the Honor 8 Pro in Berlin.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
