Honor’s long been a trendsetter for the rest of the mobile phone industry. From new features that made the competition scramble to play catch-up, to usability enhancements that are still a step ahead of everyone else, Honor devices are at the cutting edge of innovation.
You know what makes for real innovation? Cutting edge tech and engineering. And that’s what sets Honor apart from the rest. You see, the Honor brand comes from Huawei, which is the world’s leading telecom engineering brand. So when you lay your hands on a Huawei or Honor device, you’re guaranteed the latest in innovation from the chaps who make the tech on which the world relies!
A feature-packed walk down memory lane
Think back to the Honor 6 Plus (which really blew our socks off!). It had a massive battery, an octa-core processor, dual 4G SIM slots and dual rear cameras. By the way, the Honor 6 Plus was launched way back in 2015. These are some features that the competition’s just gotten around to. But Honor got there first.
And they haven’t been sitting still. The Honor 5X was launched last year, changing perceptions of what a mid-range smartphone could get you. With a build quality and features that made flagship devices blush, the 5X was as feature-packed as you’d have wanted.
The company also introduced two new devices for power users who wanted a smartphone that could keep up with their demanding usage – the Holly 2 Plus with its legendary battery life, and the Honor 5C, with its next-gen, cool-running Kirin 650 processor.
The big guns come out
Next up, two of the best phones you’d ever seen – the Huawei P9 and the Honor 8. The P9 was a revolutionary device with its ‘co-engineered with Leica’ dual lens camera system, next-gen Kirin 950 processor and a sleek metal build. The P9 was the stylish answer to the shutterbug’s wait for the ultimate camera phone.
You could take photos in native monochrome, get some tasty bokeh for artsy shots, and even shoot in full manual mode. The Honor 8 then built upon that success with a similar recipe - dual-lens camera system, a fast processor, this time in a breathtakingly gorgeous glass-clad body.
The bits that add up to a lot
As we said earlier, it’s the depth of engineering that goes into an Huawei or Honor device that makes it perfect for any user. For example, Honor gives you speedy fingerprint sensors that double up as buttons and support gestures. The Kirin processors you’ll see inside Honor devices have been developed by Huawei – making for perfect OS optimisation! And then there’s the nifty RF and wireless tech which give Honor / Huawei phones excellent network performance even when other cellphone users complain about poor signal.
Well, the Honor 6X should be on its way to Indian shores soon. Launched recently at CES Las Vegas, the 6X uses Huawei’s Kirin 655 processor, has loads of RAM (3 or 4GB) and storage (in-built and extended). And guess what, it’s also got a novel dual-lens camera setup:The Honor 6X houses a stunning rear 12MP main camera and a 2MP one which gets depth-of-field information. Perfect for portraits and travel shots.
So keep an eye out for the new Honor 6X. If it’s anything like its predecessors, it’s gonna be the perfect upgrade for you this year!
