Honor 6X budget smartphone with dual camera setup, fingerprint scanner coming soon

The Honor brand has become very popular among Android fans, especially that Huawei announced that it sold no less than 1.5 million Honor 8 units since the phone's launch back in July.

That's one more reason to continue adding new devices to the Honor lineup. As it happens, Huawei's online sub-brand, Honor will become slightly bigger with the addition of a new smartphone.

The unannounced Honor 6X has been recently spotted at TENAA, the Chinese regulatory commission, so we expect it to become official anytime soon now.

Unlike the Honor 8, which is tagged as mid-range with premium features, the upcoming Honor 6X is a budget-friendly smartphone that packs some interesting specs under the hood.

Although we don't know the retail price of the device, the pictures published at TENAA confirm the Honor 6X will pack a dual-camera setup on the rear. In the front, the smartphone is likely to include a decent selfie camera as well. 

Since TENAA hasn't yet made the specs of the Honor 6X official, we can only assume the phone will come with a slightly better hardware configuration than its predecessor, the Honor 5X. That being said we expect the Honor 6X to include a 5.5-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, coupled with 2 or 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD card).

We also know the upcoming budget-friendly smartphone will boast a fingerprint scanner on the back, along with dul-SIM and 4G LTE support. TENAA also says the Honor 6X will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box. We don't rule out the addition of a USB Type-C connector, but that's just an assumption.

Design-wise, this is a metal-clad smartphone, which will certainly give it a premium feel. As mentioned earlier, there's no word on price and release yet, but since it's been approved by TENAA it shouldn't take Huawei too long to make it official.

You do realize that the current beset dual camera, since the iPhone 7 Plus is not officially out yet, is the Huawei P9 Plus?

redmi 4 rival with almost twice more expensive, lol... but maybe that dual camera have the same feature as redmi pro, which is great (if optimized, lol...artificial bokeh on redmi pro still horrible)

I like my honor 5x... In no way am I saying it's one of the best. It is a decent phone that looks nice and performs well for being in its price range.
