Huawei has unveiled a new mid-range smartphone, the Honor 6C. If the name sounds familiar this is because the company outed its sibling, the Honor 6X a few months ago.
The Honor 6C is the lower specc’d version of the two and thus the cheaper one as well. It will be available in Europe by the end of April and will sell for €229 (Rs. 25,600). It will be available in gray, gold and silver colors.
Honor 6X on the other hand is going for Rs. 26,000 – Rs. 27,000 so it does put the 6C in a weird spot.
Design and Display
Metal chassis is becoming the norm in midrange smartphones, and it holds true for the Honor 6C too. The design is simplistic with a no non-sense front with on screen buttons. It comes with a 5 inch IPS LCD 720p (1280 x 720) screen. 2.5D glass is featured on the Honor 6C as well which is a fancy of saying that the glass curves on the sides of the screen.
The back has a brushed aluminium finish and houses the fingerprint scanner beneath the camera.
Internals and Storage
On the inside, the Honor 6C comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor. 3 GB of RAM alongside 32 GB storage is featured here. The storage is expandable via a microSD card slot.
It seems like the Honor 6C is Huawei’s answer to the Nokia 6 in terms of raw specifications.
The OS might be outdated in this phone with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Huawei’s EMUI 4.1 skin on top. On the plus side you get a hybrid dual-SIM/microSD card option if you’re ok with 32 GB of internal storage.
Camera and Battery
The primary camera uses a 13 MP f/2.2 sensor with an LED flash. Video recording is limited to 1080p resolution only. At the front you get a 5 MP f/2.2 camera.
A 3,020 mAh battery powers the phone, about 20 mAh bigger than the Nokia 6’s battery unit.
No word on a Pakistani release so far.
