Honor X6 Launched With 50MP Camera and Large Battery For Cheap

Honor’s X series of budget phones has quietly received a new model in the Middle East called Honor X6. Its price is yet to be revealed, but given its entry-level specifications, we expect it to land in the $200 ballpark.

Design and Display

Despite being a budget phone, the Honor X6 has extremely narrow bezels, but a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera. It has a glossy plastic build and a fingerprint sensor on the side atop the power button. The screen is a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with 720p resolution and only a 60Hz refresh rate.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, it features MediaTek’s budget Helio G25 SoC with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB/128 GB storage options. You can expand storage through a microSD card slot.

For software, the phone boots Android 12 OS with Magic UI 6.1 out of the box.


The camera setup on the back is quite basic. It includes a 50MP main sensor accompanied by a duo of 2MP shooters for depth sensing and macrophotography. It comes with features such as portrait mode, panorama, time-lapse photography, and 1080p video recording at 30 FPS.

The selfie camera inside the waterdrop notch is a 5MP shooter that can record 1080p videos.

Battery and Pricing

The Honor X6 is fitted with a large 5,000 mAh battery, but there is no support for fast charging for quick top-ups.

As mentioned earlier, there is no word on pricing yet, but the phone will be available in Ocean Blue, Titanium Silver, and Midnight Black color options.
