A month after Huawei started selling its Huawei Honor 8 in the US, the company has opened up preordering for its 6X phones in China and to ship out on October 25th. While there's no news about when that device will reach the rest of Asia, Europe or North America, because the 5X was the first phone in the Honor line to go on sale in the US back in January, it's a good bed that its successor will follow in time.

Huawei Honor 6X

The Honor 6X comes in three variants: 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage; 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage; and 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It is powered by company’s homegrown Kirin 655 processor. The dual-SIM capable smartphone also has a micro-SD card should you need more storage. The other two variants are priced at roughly RMB 1,299 ($190) and RMB 1,599 ($240). All variants come with a 5.5-inch full HD display.

The 6X has a dual rear-facing camera (12MP and a second 2MP for depth), while its front one is a respectable 8MP. Like its predecessor, it supports dual-SIM functionality with a microSD slot, though gizok couldn't confirm whether it has a USB-C connector. It runs Huawei's EMU 4.1 software on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to start, with an update for Nougat likely on the way.

The Huawei Honor 6X comes in gold, silver, grey, blue, and rose gold colors. Pricing starts at 999 yuan, which is about $148 for the 3GB RAM, 32GB storage version. The 32GB storage version with 4GB of RAM is $192 or 1299 yuan. The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage version is 1599 yuan, or $237. Pre-orders are going in China as of today with shipping on October 25.
