The Honor 6X was launched back in October in China and features a similar display setup but the processor used is an octa-core Kirin 655 coupled with Mali T830-MP2 GPU. It also has a dual camera setup, which reminds us of the Huawei P9 and the Honor 8.
There is no word about the Indian launch of either of the smartphones. Looking at the previous launches, we can expect both these handset to hit Indian shores in the first quarter of 2017.
Snapdragon 435 is the latest low-end chipset from Qualcomm, which is said to change the way budget smartphones perform. Let’s wait for some more renders and leaks about the phone and see what else we get on the rumored Honor 6S.
