Huawei Honor 6 Plus launched in Beijing

December 16, 2014

Device goes all out with bionic parallel camera

Huawei announced the Honor smartphone last year and the device did very well indeed, strengthening its place as a flagship device. So 1 year after the first device in the Honor range, Huawei’s upped the stakes, and focussed on the brave. End result? The Huawei Honor 6 Plus.

jcrop-previewWhile the Apple connection may first come to mind, the brand has given it all for the Honor 6 Plus. Created with an aluminium alloy, with bi-level composite layers of graphite [which makes it sort of bullet proof, if a demo video was to be believed], the device boasts better heat dissipation and a 3100mAh battery. As for highlights, that would definitely be the bionic parallel camera. The brand mentions that the camera on the Honor 6 Plus is made from 93 technical procedures. Which possibly explains its massive aperture range, right from F 0.95 to F16.  Meaning great bokeh, and worse tidings for bridge camera producers. The 5.0 MP front and 8.0 MP BSI back camera ensure a much improved depth of field as well. The brand promises as fast as a 0.1 second focus time.

The processor has four Cortex-A15 cores for performance, and four Cortex-A7 cores for battery life. With 3GB RAM and 32GB R0M, the 6 Plus has a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixels screen. 

jcrop-previewJeff Liu, President, Huawei Honor, announced that the 16GB Honor 6 Plus would retail at 1999 Yuan [roughly AED 1299], with the 32GB retailing at 2499 Yuan [roughly AED 1699].
