A promising competitor to Samsung and Apple is about to launch exclusively on the UK's Three network. The Huawei Honor 6 Plus – a new device with premium styling from the Chinese manufacturer – will be available on-contract from April 1.
The successor to last year's Honor 6, the Honor 6 + has been revealed as a Three exclusive at MWC 2015, and is pitched as a high-spec device with a reasonable price tag.
The Honor 6 Plus runs Android 4.4 and features a 5.5-inch Full-HD (1080 x 1920) IPS-Neo display, 1.8GHz octo-core processor and 3 GB RAM. Photos will be taken care of using a 13 MP rear camera and 8 MP front-facing snapper. The specs are rounded out with 32 GB of internal memory.
Regarding the Three/Honor partnership, Three's head of devices and products Sylvia Chind said:
“We are delighted to be bringing such an innovative and exciting brand to the UK market. The Honor 6+ has already built a strong fan base and it’s a smartphone that can seriously compete with some of the higher end devices out there, minus the hefty price tag."
