Looks like Huawei is preparing a sub-spec’ed variant of its Honor 6X, that won’t feature the dual cameras, and would have a mediocre but pretty decent processor. The device is being dubbed as Honor 6S, and could come out in January 2017 at a price of $120-130, given the price of Honor 6X and its superior specs.
Naturally, it all points to launch of a budget level device by Huawei, with design and everything borrowed from Honor 6X, and spec’ed lowered down to match the price.
Looking at the pics it seems, Huawei is cutting down on the screen size of the 6X too, and if you ask us, we’d see it looks like a 5-5.2″ display on the front. While the Honor 6S won’t feature dual cameras, it certainly will feature fingerprint sensor, which is good.
The Honor 6S is expected to launch with Marshmallow on board, although Huawei has already released Android 7.0 pre-installed device in Mate 9, but is yet to release Honor 6X or 5X Nougat updates. Huawei P9 Nougat firmware is already available as leak, while the Honor 8 has Nougat update as beta.
Recently, Huawei pushed out a statement confirming the devices it is readying the Nougat update for, while more devices could be added later on.
