Huawei stages a launch contest for the Honor 6's debut in Europe
Ever since it based itself in Europe, China's Huawei has been enthusiastically boasting how comfortable it feels doing business and development in the old continent. For one reason or another, the company hesitated to make a high-profile dash towards the EU smartphone market, but it looks like it's feeling brave enough to get startin'. It has set up a fancy landing page to launch its hero phone, the Huawei Honor 6, with a bang:

Touting an industry-leading screen, processor, camera, and battery life, the near side bezel-less Honor 6 looks every bit as good as we talked it up to be in our Monsters from Asia spotlight article.

The smartphone will launch in Europe in six days. Until the clock strikes twelve, customers are invited (oh, snap!) to register their e-mail addresses and compete for a chance to win one of 50 smartphones in Huawei's pre-launch queue. Share your invite with friends and you'll have better luck. That's how Internet marketing happens nowadays, so there's hardly any room for complaints here. 

We're pretty sure the Honor 6 will eventually go on sale through Huawei's dedicated European store, just like Oppo's smartphones. Allegedly, the first countries to receive it will be the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, and France. The pricing could turn out to be very reasonable, as the Honor 6 costs just ~$323 (¥1999), while the 32GB costs ~$372 (¥2299) in China.
