Huawei’s sub brand Honor that had launched the Honor 6X smartphone in china back in October this year is reportedly working on a new smartphone, called the Honor 6S. The image of the device was leaked by @krispitech on Twitter, and revealed that a Snapdragon 435 processor will power the phone.
According to the leaked images, the Honor 6S features a single rear camera – unlike the dual rear camera setup on the Honor 6S. According to an AndroidSoul report, the phone is expected to be in the range of $120-130 (approx. Rs 8,500) and launching in January 2017.
As rumours suggest, the Honor 6S will carry forward the 5.5-inch Full HD display of the Honor 6X, and will also feature 4G VoLTE support, a 3300 mAh battery, a hybrid SIM slow and running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Huawei Honor 6X was launched in October and featured a similar dual-rear camera setup like the Huawei P9 and the Honor 8. It features a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. The phone is powered by an octa-core Kirin 655 processor that is coupled with a Mali T830-MP2 GPU.
Honor 6X comes in three variants – 3GB RAM/32GB ROM, 4GB RAM/32GB ROM and 4GB/64GB ROM. It features a 12MP + 2MP rear camera with LED flash and phase detection auto-focus, along with an 8MP front camera. It is backed by a 3,340 mAh battery.
