After introducing the Honor 6X just a few weeks ago, Chinese manufacturer Huawei doesn’t show any signs of stopping, as they’re expected to launch an even more affordable variant of this smartphone, currently known as Honor 6S and sporting a price tag of $120 or $130.
The amount of information we have about this phone is pretty low right now, but it’s just enough to help us make an idea about what to expect from it.
To be more specific, we’re talking about a 5.5″ display, with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The rumours are also pointing to a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 435 system-on-chip, manufactured using the old 28nm process and featuring eight Cortex-A53 cores.
Even though there’s nothing about the amount of RAM and storage capacity, we’re expecting 3 GB and at least 16 gigs of space, with the possibility of expanding the latter, using a microSD card.
Moving on, we also expect to see a hybrid SIM slot, a 3340 mAh battery, as well as 4G and VoLTE support. As for the operating system, it should be Android 6.0 Marshmallow, customized with the manufacturer’s own EMUI interface.
If the leaked images reveal the actual Honor 6S, the handset should also feature a fingerprint scanner on the back, right under the camera, which will be aided by an LED flash. Also, the phone seems to be using a dual speaker system.
Huawei could release the Honor 6S somewhere in January 2017, probably before the Mobile World Congress, where they will, most likely, come with something way more impressive.
