honor just unveiled the honor 6A as the successor of last year’s honor 5A. The new iteration now comes with the metal body while maintaining the affordable price point.
In oppose to last year’s 5.5-inch display, the honor 6A comes with a smaller 5-inch display, albeit the IPS display resolution is still kept at 1280 x 720 pixels. Interestingly, honor has opted for Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC, forgoing their in-house Kirin chipsets. The phone comes in 2 different configurations:
- 2 GB RAM + 16 GB storage
- 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage
At the back of the phone is a 13-megapixel camera, while at the front is a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. The honor 6A now also comes with a fingerprint reader where it was omitted in the previous phone. Powering all those components is the 3020 mAh battery. Out of the box, the honor 6A will run EMUI 5.1 which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
honor 6A will be available in four different colours: Gold, Silver, Blue & Pink.
honor 6A is now up for pre-order in China starting May 25. Sales starts at 1st June.
