Huawei Honor 6 Now Official with 5’’ Screen, 6.5Mm Thin Body

Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei has been long rumored to plan the release of a new flagship handset in the popular Honor series, and the company has finally made the move today.

The handset, spotted online a few times before under the codename of Mulan, has gone official today as Huawei Honor 6, packing all of the features and capabilities the flagship is expected to include. The smartphone has been made official with a 5-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a full HD (1080p) resolution, as well as with a very thin aluminum body, which is only 6.5mm thick (it is 139.8mm tall and 68.8mm wide). Considering the fact that some of the latest flagship handsets out there have been announced with Quad HD displays, the new Honor 6 might seem handicapped right from the start, but things are actually not that way, especially since its maker will manage to bring it to shelves at an affordable cost. Just as previously rumored, the new Huawei Honor 6 is powered by an octa-core Kirin 920 processor, which includes a quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU and a quad-core Cortex-A7 one, while being complemented by Mali-T628 graphics.

At the same time, the chipset features an integrated LTE modem, which should be able to provide data transfer rates of up to 300 Mbps, as GforGames notes. Overall, the new Kirin 920 processor, which is developed in-house by Huawei, should be able to provide users with about the same performance levels that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU has to offer. The specifications list of the new Huawei Honor 6 also includes 3GB of RAM, along with 16/32 GB of internal memory, which is complemented by a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes. On the back, the new device sports a 13-megapixel camera with support for full HD video recording, which is complemented by a 5MP front camera for making great video calls while on the go.

The usual set of connectivity capabilities and sensors will also be present on the new device when it arrives on the market later this year. Apparently, the Chinese vendor still hasn’t offered specifics on the handset’s availability and pricing, though it might not be too long before it reveals such details. The one thing that it has unveiled, however, is the fact that Huawei Honor 6 will run under the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system right out of the box. The company’s own Emotion UI 2.3 software will be also loaded on top of it, just as previously rumored.
