The new Huawei Honor 6X is currently the only 5.5-inch smartphone available with dual rear cameras for under 250 Euros. A new color option joins the existing gold and silver choices.

Huawei unveiled its mid-range 5.5-inch Honor 6X smartphone at CES 2017 for launch in both European and U.S. territories. Now, certain regions in Europe will also be receiving a gray color option in addition to the standard gold and silver. The price of the smartphone remains the same at about 250 Euros through Vmall.eu and other online resellers.

Core specifications for the Honor 6X include:

  • 5.5-inch FHD display
  • HiSilicon Kirin 655 SoC
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 12 MP + 2 MP rear cameras
  • 8 MP front-facing camera
  • 32 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD support up to 128 GB
  • WLAN 802.11 b/g/n (2.4 GHz), Bluetooth 4.1
  • Fingerprint sensor, Micro-USB port
  • Android 6.0 w/ EMUI 4.1 overlay
  • 3340 mAh battery
  • 150.9 x 76.2 x 8.2 mm
  • 162 g

The Honor 6X supplants the existing Honor 5X that launched late last year. Other than the notable camera updates, Huawei has also dropped the mid-range Snapdragon 616 from the older model for the in-house HiSilicon SoC instead. The 6X retails for $50 USD more at launch than did the 5X likely due to its dual rear camera design.

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.
