The Honor 6A is now official, Honor has introduced its all-new budget smartphone in China. This is a metal-clad handset, which comes with some compelling specs despite the fact it’s a budget phone, and it’s also quite affordable. The Honor 6A features a fingerprint scanner on the back (unlocks the phone in only 0.2 seconds), and its main camera does protrude a bit. All the physical keys can be found on the right-hand side of this phone, while a SIM card tray is placed on the left.
The Honor 6A actually comes in a number of color variants, Chinese consumers will be able to purchase it starting from June 1 in Gold, Silver, Pink and Blue color variants. The phone costs 799 Yuan ($116) in the country for the 2GB RAM model with 16GB of internal storage, while the 3GB RAM variant with 32GB of native storage will be available for 999 Yuan ($145). Having said that, let’s take a look at the phone’s specs. This device sports a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, along with 2GB / 3GB of RAM and 16GB / 32GB of expandable storage (expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card). A 13-megapixel shooter (PDAF, 28mm 5P lens) is placed on the back of the phone, while you’ll be able to find a 5-megapixel snapper on the phone’s front side. A 3,020mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it is not removable. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on the Honor 6A, along with the company’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.1 skin. The device offers support for 4G VolTE, while it measures 143.7 x 70.95 x 8.2mm, and weighs 143 grams.
This handset did get announced in China, but chances are it will become available in a number of other regions as well, it’s only a matter of time, at least if its predecessor is any indication, considering that the Honor 5A is currently available in a number of regions around the world. Speaking of Honor, the company introduced the Honor 8 Pro a while back, and the Honor 9 is actually expected to launch in the near future, quite probably next month, so stay tuned for that, new leaked images will likely surface soon.
