Huawei Honor 6 announced in China with impressive hardware performance.
Earlier today Huawei introduced in China its latest smartphone powered by a in-house made Kirin 920 chipset, which is based on ARM big.LITTLE arhitecture (4 x Cortex-A15 cores + 4 x Cortex-A7 cores) that is able to deliver 4G LTE Cat6 (up to 300 Mbps download speeds) integrating a Mali-T628 GPU as well.
Huawei Honor 6 (Glory aka Mulan) feature a 5-inch JDI Full HD display, 3GB of RAM, 16/32GB of internal storage, a 13MP main camera coupled by a 5MP front-facing camera and the Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Huawei’s Emotion 2.3 UI.
The phone will go on sale in the country via local mobile carriers and it is touted the iPhone and Galaxy S5 killer. During the launch event which took place this morning in China, Huawei showed a couple of screenshots, which depict the high performance of Honor 6, thanks to its Kirin 920 processor.
We are looking at Honor 6 AnTuTu benchmark test results (AnTuTu Xtreme edition app on the left screenshot, standard AnTuTu app on the right). Also note that this is the third chipset to score over 40K points in AnTuTu tests, after Snapdragon 805 and Tegra K1.
Huawei hasnt confirmed whether or not this smartphone will be available in Europe or on the North American continent, but looking back at previous Honor series devices, we are expecting a global roll out by the end of 2014.
