We had last touched upon the Huawei Honor 6C back in June. The budget smartphone from the Chinese telecom’s subsidiary was revealed in the EU with a €299 (~₹15,900) price tag. And then it was promptly forgotten till recently when images of the device getting unboxed surfaced on Weibo.
The Honor 6C comes in a plastic chassis with a faux metal finish. The model pictured has a silver back, bronze trim on the frame and white face. Being a budget handset, there is no bezel management going on and the device comes off with rather thick side bezels too. Flip the handset over and you can see the camera module and the fingerprint scanner below it.
Internally, Huawei has provisioned the Honor 6C with a Snapdragon 435 SoC complemented by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The display is a 5.5-inch HD (720 x1280) AMOLED panel under a layer of 2.5D curved glass. On the camera front, the smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel primary shooter at the rear with a f/2.2 aperture, PDAF support and LED flash. Selfie duties are handled by a front facing 5-megapixel shooter with a f/2.2 aperture. Powering all this hardware is a 3020mAh battery while out of the box the Honor 6C will come running Android v.7.x, Nougat under Huawei’s proprietary EMUI 5.0 skin. The smartphone features dual-SIM support and expandable storage (up to 128GB) but has a hybrid SIM-tray.
With this hardware, the Honor 6C puts up a score of ~45174 points on the popular AnTuTu benchmark suite. Huawei will launch the smartphone for an asking price of ~¥799 (~$120) in the market which will see it compete against Xioami’s Redmi 5. The latter comes with a more powerful SoC and more storage out of the box.
