It seems Huawei is very busy this month. The Chinese brand has been pumping out smartphones one after the other like clockwork. Earlier, it was Maimang 6, then Honor 7X and now we have a new handset labelled Honor 6C Pro. We are still expecting the biggest unwrapping (Mate 10) that is pending. Now, Huawei is no stranger to rebranding old models and that’s precisely what is happening here. The Honor 6C Pro is actually the Honor V9 Play in disguise that launched last month. It is also an augmented Honor 6 that launched in April. The phone is right now exclusive to Russia, but Europe should expect it soon. There is a Gold and Blue colour option for the device.

Design wise, we are looking at a unimetal body design with 2.5D curved glass plastered on top of the screen. There is an Honor branding beneath the display which means no capacitive buttons. The rear has a single camera lens and a fingerprint reader beneath it. While on the top sits the 3.5 mm headphone jack and the noise cancelling mike.

Now for the components, the Honor 6C Pro has a rather boring 5.2-inch HD IPS 16:9 aspect ratio screen. Due to a sudden explosion of thin bezel phones, now we’re much less enthused with such offerings. Although it’s barely been a year. Under the hood, Honor has opted for a MediaTek 6750 octa-core chip. The chip is assisted by 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. The phone has a sufficient 3,000 mAh battery. So far, the specs of the phone scream entry level.

Coming to the camera section, the Honor 6C Pro has a single rear shooter of 13 MP with  LED flash. The selfie shooter module has an 8 MP lens. Needless to say, the Honor 6C Pro runs Android Nougat 7.1 with EMUI 5.1 skin.

Pricing and availability of the device are yet to be disclosed officially but that should happen soon.
