Huawei showcased its Honor 6 smartphone back in August 2014. But now, the handset-maker is back with a bigger and better version of the aforesaid device in the form of "Huawei Honor 6 Plus."

Readers should note that the Honor 6 Plus is not as conservative as the smaller sibling Honor 6. This handset comes packed with killer specifications and very helpful features. And to top it off, the handset is affordably priced. The stand out feature of this device, however, is the set of two camera units at the rear, says Phone Arena.

The Honor 6 Plus comes with an impressive slimmer profile of only 7.5 mm thickness. Adding a cheery on top, the metal frame covering the device looks very attractive and gives a contemporary look. When it comes to key specifications, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus features a 5.5-inch IPS display and 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. This combination translates to a pixel density of 403 ppi. The display panel is built by JDI, a notable joint venture of Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi.

Under the hood, the handset is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 925 processor and backed by a solid 3 GB of RAM. The octa-core Kirin 925 chip uses four Cortex-A7 and additional four Cortex-A15 cores with ARM big.LITTLE configuration. In addition, the graphic department is reportedly governed by a hexa-core ARM Mali-T628 GPU. As Phone Arena points out, this hardware configuration is easily one of the competitive chips available in the current period of time.

On the software side, the Honor 6 Plus runs on Android v4.4.2 KitKat along with Huawei's own EMUI 3.0 on top of it. As far as the memory goes, the device comes equipped with 16 GB of internal storage capacity and microSD card support for further expansion. Lastly, the entire configuration is held together and powered a humongous 3,600 mAh battery unit.

As mentioned earlier, the camera unit of the device is a stand-out feature. The Huawei Honor 6 Plus houses the much-appreciated "Duo camera." The company calls this technology as "symmetrical dual camera technology." This camera unit comprises of two individual 8 MP sensors, aided by huge 1.85 µm pixels. Reportedly, this combination enables the handset to capture more light when compared to other flagships. Both the sensors come with different lens configuration i.e. one of them uses f/2.0 aperture, while the other comes with an f/2.4 aperture. This allows for quick auto focus within 0.1 seconds. In comparison, this camera unit focuses quicker than the units of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G3 at 0.3 seconds. In addition, there is also an 8 MP Sony front-facing shooter with f/2.4 aperture for selfie enthusiasts.

Speaking of pricing details, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus will set the buyers back by 1999 yuan that roughly translates to $322 for the 3G variant, while the LTE version comes for 2499 yuan (i.e. $402). Readers should note that both the variants support dual-SIM slots. Even though, the company has not announced the release date of the handset outside China, Phone Arena points out that the third-party eCommerce sites have confirmed that the device will be sold in the U.S. at a price range of $400 to $420.
