Huawei Honor 6 Plus really surprised me when it was launched, not only by its specs and design, but its price. Huawei wasn’t always the most price-aware company out there, but the Honor 6 Plus was definitely a step in another direction. This handset brings forth really great specs, and in its basic variant it costs only 1,999 Yuan ($322), which is great. Well, the gold-colored version of this handset is available starting today as well. Huawei also says that their device is is more difficult to manufacture than the gold iPhone 6 and 6 Plus because it’s completely covered in this color, unlike the aforementioned Apple devices.
This version of Huawei’s phablet costs about $390 in China, and it comes with LTE connectivity, in fact, this is basically the same model as was announced back in December, only its color is different. The Huawei Honor 6 Plus features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. This handset is powered by Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 925 octa-core processor which ships with Mali T628 MP4 GPU for graphics. 3,600mAh battery comes with this device as well, and Android 4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed here with Huawei’s very own EmotionOS on top of it. Two 8-megapixel cameras are located on the back of this device, and Huawei’s OS comes equipped with a ton of software features to make this experience better / more fun. This thing also has an 8-megapixel sensor up front, which should be more than enough for you to shoot some nice selfies, if that’s your thing, of course.
Huawei’s definitely has plans to offer their Honor-branded smartphones in the U.S., so this device might be a part of their setup in the States, but we don’t have any official information regarding that, nor whether the company intends to sell the Honor 6 Plus (either version) in Europe or other parts of the world. You can always get a copy via resellers of course, though that will cost you a bit more than it would in China, but that is to be expected. Anyhow, let us know what you think of this handset, do you like the color or are you one of those who just avoid Gold-colored phones altogether?
