Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has been busy launching a lot of smartphones lately. It won’t be wrong if I say, we have seen more devices under honor brand than Huawei itself. Joining the bandwagon of dual-camera smartphones, Honor 6X is launched in India with dual-cameras on the rear. The device is placed in mid-range pricing segment to compete against the already crowded arena.
While some companies are busy launching heavily specced devices at an affordable price, Huawei is playing a different game altogether. The company is concentrating on improvising the camera on the smartphones. We have already seen devices like Huawei Mate 9, Huawei P9 and Honor 8 with a dual-camera setup on the rear. Joining the group, Honor 6X promises to take the mobile photography to next level in mid-range.
