Quick hands-on with the honor 6+ plus Specs and release date

honor-6-PlusOn Tuesday night I was in London at the honor event, who? Well honor is to all intents and purposes a subsidiary of Huawei but you will not find any link to Huawei on their phones. And yes ‘honor’ is spelt with a small ‘h’. It will be coming in three colours, White, Black and Gold. The White is all white not just the back cover.

So what did they show us at the event. The brand new honor 6+ and the honor 4x, below we will talk about the honor 6+. Although it’s difficult to say which is the star feature, because several features stand out.

  • Battery5.5-inch 1080×1920 IPS-Neo screen,
  • 1.8GHz octo-core Kirin processor,
  • 3GB RAM, and 32GB of internal storage,
  • 2 x 8MP dual-lens 13MP camera on the back with a built-in aperture lens.
  • 8MP front-facing camera,
  • Dual-sim trays.
  • Or the 3,600mAh battery

Honor — HONOR 6-1

The honor 6+ will use dual 8-megapixel rear camera sensors that results in a 13MP camera. The result should be a photo with 1.98 micron pixels. This should mean higher sensitivity for clearer images. It also allows for refocusing of images after they’ve been captured, again not a new offering but this will be done natively rather than in after effects, meaning between f/0.95 to f/1.6 offerings.

The phone itself will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display and Kirin 925 octa-core CPU with low-power co-processor and 3GB of RAM. There will be 32GB storage and a 3,600mAh battery plus Cat 6 LTE, dual-sim with, one sim being a nano and the other a micro (yellow arrow).

The beauty of this is the nano tray itself (green arrow) has dual function as you can either put a nano sim or, a microSD card up to 128GB. NFC, infrared are also included.

One small GUI that caught us was the second hand on the clock face where the segments became bigger as the hand, in this case a little red dot moved around the face.honor_Clock_sm

My overall impression is one of a company that is selling a smartphone at a reasonable price and does not try to fleece customers. Hats off to honor for delivering a solid well packed and well made smartphone.

honer_main_6+The honor 6+ will be available for just £250 SIM-free according to various sites but, we were told the price would not be divulged till nearer the released date which is confirmed for April 1st, yes really no joke. We hope they are right but wouldn’t be surprised to see a price tag nearer to the £300 mark which, is still a damned good price.

Network, ThreeUK will be offering a exclusive plan for the honor 6+ but for now it’s under wraps.

Our thanks go to honor for putting a great event.
