The Huawei Honor 6 Plus boasts two 8-megapixel rear cameras that have a pixel size of 1.98 microns, which is extremely close to the 2-micron size of the pixels in HTC’s UltraPixel camera. Huawei claims that this feature allows the Honor 6 Plus to take clearer, cleaner images. This dual camera setup also lets you refocus your photos and adjust the aperture, and it’s got a dual LED flash too. Oh, and the Honor 6 Plus’s front camera? It’s an 8-megapixel shooter, too.
The Honor 6 Plus also boasts a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 screen, 1.8GHz octa-core Kirin 925 processor, 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 3GB of RAM and a 3600mAh battery. Huawei has also thrown in NFC, LTE, dual SIM support and an infrared transmitter to control your TV. Huawei has loaded the Honor 6 Plus with Android running beneath its EMUI 3.0 user interface. That custom UI’s got some unique features that include the ability to press the volume down button twice with the screen off to take a photo or press the volume up button twice with the screen off to start recording a voice memo.
The Huawei Honor 6 Plus will come in two varieties: a base model with 16GB of storage, 3G and no NFC for CN¥1,999 (around $322 USD) that’ll be sold in black and white, as well as a premium model that’ll have 4G, a gold color option and a price tag of CN¥2,499 (around $403 USD).
Huawei’s Honor 6 Plus looks like a pretty high-end handset on paper, and its affordable pricing make it even more enticing. What will be interesting is seeing how its pair of 8-megapixel rear cameras perform. Sure, it’s cool that you’ll be able to refocus shots and adjust the aperture, but if it doesn’t take good straight-up photos, it’ll be tougher for people to get excited about the device as a whole.
