Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. announced that it will be showcasing the Honor 6X at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). What should fans expect from Huawei Honor 6X?

Given the various tweaks that set the Honor 6X from its predecessor, some familiar factors can still be expected. The 6X will have the same aluminum unibody construction, although it will feel more sturdy than the Honor 5X,  providing a more premium feel. Its rounded corners and sides, making it comfortable to grip, could also be slippery combined with the sandblasted finish. (via AnandTech)

Huawei Honor 6X – camera and filters

Per The Verge, looking into the device’s dual cameras brings “quality photos” to mind. A rear-facing camera boasts of a 12-megapixel sensor, while the other is only two megapixels. Noting that higher end model Honor 8 should take better quality photos, the new 6X is better for filters. Why? Because it can simulate aperture in its wide aperture mode–which is designed to make a subject stand out.

The 6X’s dual camera is incomparable to the Honor 8’s, but it’s a lot less expensive. The 8 started at $400, as the 6X will cost $249.99.
