We already knew few details about it and, as we had promised, today October 18 has been made official. We talk about the honour to 6 X, a so-called smartphone to conquer the mid-range, and it does so with almost required arguments as fingerprint sensor, metallic design, double camera and, of course, a price of demolition.
The Huawei brand continues to new and interesting fruit and, after the renewal of its most advanced with Honor 8 range, he played the turn to the intermediate range. 6 Honor X honour witness picks up 5 X, a terminal that already stands out for its combination of performance, adjusted price. We see all the innovations that brings his successor.
Honor 6 X, review in video
Honored 5 X improved, now with double Chamber
The truth is that the path of honour, the X 6 does not we take by surprise, especially taking into account that his predecessor had already pointed ways and the new model is not fate an evolution of what you already knew.
Notice it at points like the screen, which is still committed to a diagonal of 5.5 inch and FullHD resolution, In addition to IPS technology, or in the design, he is again made of metal – but in this case has been perfected with 2.5 d glass that covers your screen and 1 bevel chrome touring around the edge. It also repeats with footprints on the back sensor, although in this case it is round and comes in three colors, a choice of gold, silver or grey.
The main difference with the previous model resides in the camera, or rather cameras. The trend of the double Chamber that Huawei started with its current logo, Huawei P9, continues to extend its catalog, including their brand Honor as we saw with the Honor 8.
We are here not to the usual combination of monochrome sensor + RGB, but 6 Honor X emulates the proposal that offered to us by HTC with HTC One M8, that had a main sensor and one secondary that contributed with depth information to create depth of field effects.
In the Honor of 6 X the main camera has 12 megapixel sensor and secondary sensor stays on 2-megapixel. Depending on the brand, with this combination you can create bokeh depth of field usual effect on lenses of Grand opening, as well as controlling the focus after you have shot. Speaking of opening, the system emulates a lens with Aperture from f/16 to f/0.95 variable, but it will have to see it in action to see if it actually deceived us or it too shows the effect.
The camera has focus by phase detection, record FullHD videos and is accompanied by a LED flash. On the front is placed one camera for selfies which reaches the 8 megapixel.
