Honor 6X Features
In terms of design, Honor 6X is a good looking and a sleek device with the 2.5D curved display, and it uses the metal on the rear side with a curved body, which makes it easy to hold.
This device features a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 x 1080p) 2.5D curved display with 350 nits brightness.
Hono 6x is powered by Huawei’s own built Kirin 655 Octa-Core processor clocked at (4 x 2.1GHz + 4x 1.7GHz) along with a Mali T830 GPU, which is not the best configuration for gaming but still can play most of the games with ease.
Honor 6x is a camera focused smartphone and it comes with dual rear camera setup. It is having a 12 Megapixel primary camera with PDAF and a 2 Megapixel camera for depth sensing, which allows you to take bokeh shots and focus can also be adjusted later after the image has been taken (similarly like the HTC M8).
The phone also comes with various shooting modes for example; the professional mode, light painting mode and for selfies, it is having a 8 Megapixel front camera.
6X runs on Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) operating system along with EMUI 5.0. Moreover, the company has also promised to roll-out the Android 7.0 Nougat update in Q2.
