Honor 6X Steals the Show at International CES 2017 with Uncompromising Performance A mighty budget smartphone created for digital natives with cutting-edge dual-lens rear camera, sturdy performance and extended battery life

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 3, 2017 /CNW/ -- International Consumer Electronics Show – Built for the cost-conscious yet uncompromising Internet-minded millennial, the Honor 6X is the perfect technological budget beast. Embodying the "double or nothing" motto that millennials live and breathe, the Honor 6X breaks new ground at CES 2017 with its premium dual-lens rear camera, extended battery life and rock-solid performance.

Designed to offer the young and bold consumers around the globe a superb internet experience, the Honor 6X is a powerful and versatile all-rounder packing top-of-the-shelf features empowering millennials to explore the world, cultivate their inner artist, and enjoy a world of music, gaming and movies.

"Geared towards those unwilling to cut back on performance, Honor 6X is a device engineered with uncompromising excellence," said George Zhao, president of Honor. "Understanding the 'double or nothing' lifestyle of millennials, we designed Honor 6X with enough muscle power to allow them to share, explore, and enjoy life to the fullest."

Featuring a generous 5.5-inch full HD (1920*1080p) display, the ergonomically designed Honor 6X boasts a full metal slim body (8.2mm thick) with 2.5D glass on the front and curved panel on the back.

Powerful dual-lens camera

Honor 6X features an innovative dual-lens rear camera offering a wide aperture range (F/0.95-F/16) giving you all the latitude to unleash your creative potential. The main 12MP camera is responsible for the composition of the image while the 2MP camera provides depth of field information, resulting in beautiful shots that are sharp and crisp. Combined with the camera's wide aperture (F/0.95), the Honor 6X produces professional-looking background blur to make your subjects stand out. This, coupled with a 1.25um pixel size, enables the Honor 6X to capture quality shots even in low-light settings. The Honor 6X's camera uses Phase Detection Auto Focus technology, which allows for an ultra-fast camera focus speed of 0.3 seconds.

Rock-solid performance

Fueled by a Kirin 655 boasting an octa-core architecture, the Honor 6X is built to provide a glitch-free user experience. Kirin 655 packs four cores clocked at 2.1GHz and another four at 1.7 GHz. Supported by 3GB/4GB RAM[1] and a powerful i5 co-processer, the Honor 6X allows you to seamlessly game, browse and listen to music or run multiple apps at the same time. To further boost the agility of the device, the Honor 6X features Honor's Smart File System, which enhances Android's EXT4 system, preventing fragmentation and increasing the lifetime performance of the Honor 6X.[2]

Epic battery life

Running on a powerful 3340 mAh battery, Honor 6X offers an exceptional battery life. With its 16nm CPU and power saving technology further reducing power consumption, the Honor 6X provides 2.15 days of usage and 1.54 days of heavy usage on a single full charge. On a single full charge, the Honor 6X allows you to enjoy up to 11.5 hours of video, 70 hours of music, or up to 8 hours of gaming.[3] The Honor 6X is supported by an optimized proprietary 5V/2A charging technology, making it the perfect millennial companion.

The 3GB variant of the device will be available for purchase from 4 January onwards in select markets, including the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, with other markets to follow soon.
