Huawei: our golden Honor 6 Plus is more difficult to make than a gold iPhone 6
The Honor 6 Plus was released in China last month as Huawei's newest flagship smartphone. Starting today, the handset is available in a gold version - of which Huawei is very proud of. According to the company, the golden Honor 6 Plus is more difficult to manufacture than Apple's gold iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, because it is completely covered in this color - unlike Apple's handsets, which have white front panels. Adding to the difficult process is the simple, yet nice pattern that the Honor 6 Plus has both on the back, and front.

The gold Honor 6 Plus costs around $390 in China. It has LTE connectivity, as well as all the other features of the white and black versions: 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 925 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and a 3600 mAh battery. The Honor 6 Plus runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and comes with an unusual dual-sensor 8 MP rear camera, in addition to a regular 8 MP front-facing camera.

You can see the gold Huawei Honor 6 Plus in detail in the slideshow below. You could also check out our Huawei Honor 6 Plus (white model) hands-on from CES 2015.

We don't know if Huawei is planning to officially launch the Honor 6 Plus outside of China, but we can tell you that Honor-branded smartphones will be released in the US later this year. In case you want to order a Honor 6 Plus from China, you can do it via third-party retailers, for prices starting at $429 (16 GB model, in white or black).

Not fond of gold color but this phone looks super sexy. I want this phone in black or white, black is on the priority though.

And ignorant people think Apple is what's making sammy decline in market share. All these manufacturers are Channing out beautiful phones that appeal to different types of people at different price points. The Chinese manufacturers are samsungs real downfall not Apple.

People should just stop bashing Chinese manufacturers for no reason, they're getting better and better and rising like dragons.

haha is that worth bragging? if you create something that is difficult to do, isn't that what you call inefficiency or the lack of proper technology or stupid decision? why create something that is difficult to do and sell it at a price lower than apple's?

Not like low quality imitations of brand names can do much else besides taking manial potshots and bragging incoherently.

More attention to design detail, and a lower price than Apple? Yeah, that IS worth bragging about.
