Huawei quietly launches the Honor 6C Pro

Huawei has announced the launch of its lower mid-range Honor 6C in Russia without much ado. The regular Honor 6C was a solid offering but we're not so sure about this one, as its "Pro" tag doesn't seem to come with the perks one would expect.

Huawei is on a high, with the Chinese manufacturers releasing device after device over the past few weeks. The Honor 6C Pro is the next one to join the retinue of mid-rangers, with Huawei announcing its launch in Russia without fanfare.

The regular Honor 6C was released a few months ago, but we're not exactly sure that its Pro version makes any significant improvements on it. The 6C sported a 5-inch HD display, but the 6C Pro opts for a slightly larger 5.2-inch one, which isn't anything to be proud of, really. The regular 6C was powered by the Snapdragon 435 but the 6C Pro uses MediaTek's MT6750, which is, perhaps, a slightly weaker SoC than the 435, and that's ignoring all the issues that come with MediaTek.

Apart from those, the Honor 6C Pro features 3 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 32 GB of storage, a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP selfie shooter, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3000 mAh battery. It also runs on EMUI 5.1, Huawei's skin that's based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Prices are unknown at the moment but we'll be sure to keep you updated.
