Huawei has revealed another smartphone which is joining its Honor ranks, this one named the Honor 6 Plus.
Also known as the Huawei Glory 6 Plus, the handset was announced in China this week after being heavily leaked over the past month.
Featuring a metal frame unibody design, the Honor 6 Plus is a remarkably well build handset, and definitely looks the part compared to some of the flagship smartphones we currently have in our midst.
The Honor 6 Plus is no slouch in the spec department either, boasting a 5.5” 1080p IPS display, giving the device a real flagship look and feel about it.
Behind the screen we find a Kirin 925 chipset, with an octa-core processor backing it up. On the graphics front we’re given a Mali T628 MP4 GPU and 3GB RAM.
The 4G compatible handset also boasts 32GB of expandable storage, giving you more than enough room for all of the music, video and apps you’ll want.
One of the most interesting parts of the Honor 6 Plus however, is the inclusion of a dual camera set-up on the back, similar to that of the HTC One M8.
Both lenses size up at 8 megapixels, but thanks to the software inside them, can combine to produce 13 megapixel shots for added quality.
Also, thanks to the extra light making its way into each lens, autofocus time is reduced to just 0.1 seconds which means that blurry snaps should be a thing of the past.
Powering the Honor 6 Plus is a very handy 3600mAh battery, giving the flagship style device a lifespan of well over a day with a full charge.
Android 4.4.4 KitKat is overlaid with Huawei’s own Emotion 3.0 user interface, giving the Honor 6 a unique feel about it compared to your standard stock Android efforts.
Pre-orders for the device start in China this week, whilst shipping will begin next week. The device has a couple of price variants as well, with the standard offering pricing up at £200, which is pretty generous considering the specs shown off on the Huawei handset.
For now there’s no word on whether the larger smartphone will be hitting other parts of the globe, but common sense dictates that we won’t be getting word ahead of Christmas.
We could however, see the Honor 6 Plus gracing us with its presence to kick off next year, possibly by coming out at CES or MWC in January or March respectively.
Huawei’s Honor range was recently announced to be getting a European launch, with some of the franchises older handsets already promised to us, so it would definitely be a disappointment to see us miss out on this good looking piece of tech.
Either way, we’ll simply have to wait and see to find out when we’ll be getting access to it sometime in the future.
