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.

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).
