Bangalore, January 27 2017: Honor, a smart phone manufacturer and a subsidy of Huawei recently released yet another camera-heavy device, the Honor 6X in India. The device was launched globally only 3 weeks ago at CES 2017 in Las Vegas.
Following the likes of the Huawei P9 and Honor 8, this device too offers a dual lens technology for rear camera, but is meant for the budget conscious. The smart phone comes with a 12 megapixels front and a 2 megapixels rear camera, where the former enables image composition and the latter helps to get depth of field. Featuring a SONY IMX386 sensor and aperture range between F/0.95-F/16, the camera allows you to adjust the focus point after image capture and also creates a Bokeh effect. It also comes with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and different modes like Pro, Graffiti, Splash, etc. The front camera has an 8 megapixels resolution with 77° wide angle lens.

Powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 655, Octa-Core processor, the device comes in two variants of 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage and 4 GB RAM with 64 GB storage.
