Huawei Honor 6 Plus announced with unique dual rear camera setup

Two 8MP cameras on the back work together to capture more light and offer super quick autofocus. 


Chinese manufacturer Huawei is taking on the high-end smartphone game with the launch of the Honor 6 Plus. The Honor 6 Plus is one of the most feature-packed devices Huawei has come out with, and its trump card is the presence of two full 8-megapixel camera sensors on the back. Instead of going for a single, larger sensor, Huawei is using the two 8MP cameras to take 13-megapixel shots that capture more light and focus on a subject in just 0.1s. Of course, how the camera performs in real-life is yet to be ascertained, but Huawei’s setup surely sounds more useful than the dual camera setup we saw on the HTC One M8, where all one sensor did was capture depth information.

Other specs of the Honor 6 Plus include a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, Huawei’s proprietary Kirin 925 chipset with eight processor cores (four Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 cores) and the Mali T628GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable internal storage, LTE connectivity at speeds of up to 300Mbps, and dual SIM slots (both slots support LTE connectivity). There’s also a 3,600mAh battery, Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Huawei’s Emotion 3.0 UI, and a unibody design with a metal frame to add a touch of class.

The Honor 6 Plus will go up for pre-order later this week in China with a price tag of CNY 2,499 (€322) for the standard model, and CNY 1,999 (€258) for a dual SIM model with 4G LTE support on only one SIM. Huawei hasn’t announced any plans to bring the Honor 6 Plus to markets outside China, though we’re not expecting the company to break the exclusivity for its home country any time soon.
