Over in China, consumers are being treated to an enhanced version called the Huawei Honor 6 Plus, and the headline feature here is an HTC One M8-style dual camera setup.
Looking at Huawei Honor 6 Plus vs. Honor 6 specs, this new smartphone marks a pretty decent upgrade.
For starters, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus display stretches to an iPhone 6 Plus-matching 5.5in (still 1080p; no QHD here); the expandable internal storage is increased from 16GB to 32GB; and the front camera is now 8MP – up from 5MP on the Honor 6.
Further Huawei Honor 6 Plus specs include a 1.8GHz octo-core Kirin 925 processor with 3GB of RAM, and a beefy 3,600mAh battery. All sounds good to us.
But again, the big talking point with the Huawei Honor 6 Plus is the presence of dual 8MP cameras, described as “Symmetrical dual camera technology”, and yielding photos up to 13MP in size.
If phrases like “stereo triangulation principle”, “absolute depth”, “closed-loop motor” and "iterative exposure" get your juices flowing, head over to YouTube, where you’ll find a 4-minute video appropriately titled Huawei Honor 6 Plus: How The Dual Cameras Work.
Pre-orders go live right around now in China, with Huawei Honor 6 Plus price coming in at 1,999 Yuan for the 3G model (£205), or 2,499 for the 4G (£256).
There’s no word on a UK release for the Huawei Honor 6 Plus just yet, but given that the Honor 6 is available here, there’s always the chance the 6 Plus will pop up on Amazon, too, eventually. Fancy it?
