Huawei Honor 6 Plus Now Official With Octa-core and Dual Rear Camera

Huawei, at a recent event held in Beijing China, has officially unveiled its newest Android flagship smartphone that goes by the name of Honor 6 Plus and that is a direct follow up to the Honor 6 released a couple of months ago. As what you would expect from a new flagship device, the Honor 6 Plus has a lot of cooler stuff going on and most of all it is priced very competitively. 

 First of all the Huawei Honor 6 Plus sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display with resolution of 1280x1080 and equivalent of 401 pixels per inch. That should provide a very nice viewing experience. As for its power house, the smartphone is powered by Huawei's very own and newest HiSilicon Kirin 925 chip that is clocked at 1.8GHz. It is also an octa-core device and those eight cores comprise of four Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 chips. The LTE version is capable of supporting Cat 6 network or up to 300mbps download speed. A 3GB RAM works side by side the Kirin 925. 

Internal storage comes in 32GB right off the box and still expandable via microSD card up to another 128GB.  There is a 16GB version but does not come with 4G LTE support and NFC, for a lesser price tag. 

The cameras are the most attention-catcher feature here on Honor 6 Plus, it has three lenses over all wehere each of them is pegged at 8MP. That's two cameras (dual-camera) on the back and a single 8MP one on front. The back cameras are very smart ones. First Huawei claims that it has an autofocus time of just about 0.1 second which is very helpful when capturing images of moving objects. You may say that 8MP camera is not that great anymore in today's rear camera sizes, but there are two here and they can work together to get more detailed images and produce a 13MP photo in the process. These two rear cameras can also catch twice the amount of light that of a typical single lens can, thus making it more reliable and perfect in capturing moments in very low light conditions.

Huawei managed to make these two back cameras smarter that even after an image is captured, users will still be able to do refocusing on the image itself and even adjust aperture between f/0.95 and f/16.

On the software side, Honor 6 Plus runs the heavily customized version of Android 4.4.4 Kitkat with Huawei's Emotion 3.0 UI. It is also nice to know that the device is encased in to unibody metal chassis with dimension of 150.46 x 75.68 x 7.5mm
