Honor 6X, the latest dual-camera smartphone by the Huawei-owned Honor brand, will be launched in India on January 24. Honor has standard sending early invites for the launch of a dual-camera smartphone, without mentioning the name of the device. However, when one combines the earlier confirmation to Gadgets 360 about the India launch of the Honor 6X at the end of the month, it certainly seems to fit the bill.

The Honor 6X was launched in China in October, and its biggest highlight is its dual camera setup. Honor 6X was launched in three variants - 3GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage, 4GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage, and 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage, priced at CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 9,900), CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs. 12,900), and CNY 1,599 (roughly Rs. 15,800) correspondingly - but for now there's no clarity on which SKUs will be brought to India.

The Honor 6X was launched in Gold, Silver, Grey, Blue, and Rose Gold colour variants - which of these will be brought to India is not known at this point. Honor 6X features several upgrades over the Honor 5X, sporting a 5.5-inch (1080x1920 pixels) full-HD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass protection; a Kirin 655 octa-core (4 cores at 2.1GHz + 4 cores at 1.7GHz) SoC, and a hybrid dual-SIM (Nano-SIM) card slot, with support for microSD cards (up to 128GB) in the second SIM card slot.

Running EMUI 4.1 OS based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Honor 6X sports a dual rear camera setup with one 12-megapixel sensor that supports PDAF and an additional 2-megapixel sensor sits right below it. Honor 6X features a 8-megapixel front camera for selfies. It sports a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel that the company claims can unlock the smartphone in 0.3 seconds.

Honor 6X connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and GPS/ A-GPS. Honor 6X is powered by a 3340mAh battery with fast charging support. The Honor 6X measures 150.9x72.6x8.2mm and weighs 162 grams.
