This 5.5-inch handset is expected to hit the market powered by a Huawei Kirin 620 processor and to retail for a price of roughly $200 USD.

Huawei is now one step closer to the release of the Honor 6X, a handset that is scheduled to come out next week. The launch event will take place on October 19th, one day after Oppo will launch its R9S handset as well. Huawei Honor 6X has been spotted at TENAA already, so most of its specs are no longer secret.

Although some sources mentioned a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, it looks like the TENAA entry revealed a HiSilicon Kirin 650 chip. Maybe two different variants will be unveiled, but that remains to be seen. The other specs should include a 5.5-inch full HD display, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, a 12 MP dual camera setup on the back, all powered by a 3,040 mAh battery. Next to the usual connectivity features (4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS), USB Type-C and dual-SIM are also expected to be present. 

Android 7.0 Nougat may have been around for a while now, but it seems that Huawei Honor 6X will launch loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow carrying EMUI 4.1 on top. Its price is expected to be around $200 USD, but everything will be confirmed at launch. We will get back to it as soon as that happens, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
