The smartphone features a metal body and a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080. It runs on an Octa-Core Kirin 655 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, and a microSD card slot for expandable memory. The phone features a dual-camera setup consisting of a 12-megapixel main camera along with a 2-megapixel camera for capturing depth info. In front, there's another 8-megapixel camera for capturing selfies. It also comes with a 3,340mAh battery and a fingerprint reader. Upon release, the phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with Honor's custom EMUI 4.1 UI on top of it.
The Honor 6X comes with support for GSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 900/1900/2100, and LTE bands 2/4/5/12/20/38. There's still no confirmation yet on whether or not the device will be supporting VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling on T-Mobile. But considering the previous Honor 8 was able to support these for T-Mobile in the past, it's possible Huawei could do the same for the Honor 6X.
While the Honor 6X is set to launch on January 15, it is already available for pre-orders starting today for $249. Huawei will be hosting flash sales for the device on January 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st. If you purchase on these dates, you can get the device for $199.99 instead of the original price.
