CES 2017: Honor announces its 6X, available immediately for $250
Honor had an announcement for the CES: it was the Honor 6X. A mid-range smartphone which has the particularity to offer a dual camera sensor.
Honor did not come empty-handed at CES 2017. The Huawei subsidiary takes advantage of the Las Vegas show to announce the Honor 6X. Like the 5X last year, it is a smartphone turned towards the entry-level, but too much, this segment usually being devoted to the "C" series. It differs primarily from its predecessor by the integration of a dual sensor in a metal frame. Something you probably end up on all the brand phones.
The display is on 5.5 inches With a Full HD resolution for a density of approximately 400 dpi. The processor used is a Kirin 655, an 8-core chip engraved in 16 nm, clocked at 2.1 GHz for the four fastest cores. It will be backed by 3 or 4 GB of RAM depending on whether you opt for the 32 or 64 GB version of storage. The battery has a capacity of 3340 mAh, which makes Honor promise an autonomy of 2.2 days in current use.
Dual sensor, but no black and white
The photo part is therefore directly inherited from Huawei Mate 9 or Huawei P9 or Honor 8. The sensors are however a little different. Here we have a main sensor of 12 mpx, but only 2 mpx for the secondary sensor. This is dedicated to the calculation of the depth of field. It will apply this famous opening effect to f/0.95. Thus, contrary to what is found on the P9 for example, there is no question of a black and white matrix. You will also find a fingerprint sensor on the back.
As often with Honor, the phone is available in the wake of the announcement. The 32GB model is now available for $250. Note that the firm also offers an ODR of 30 until January 23, which drops its price to $220. The 64 GB version will be marketed later, for $300 this time.
