Huawei has unveiled its latest smartphone, the Honor 6, which has an octa-core processor and runs Android 4.4 Kitkat. The £250 handset will be available only from Amazon, and not in high street stores.
Huawei has managed to pack some fairly respectable specs into the Honor 6 given the price. It has an octa-core Kirin920 processor, made up of a quad-core Cortex-A15 chip clocked at 1.7GHz and a quad-core Cortex-A7 clocked at 1.3GHz.
It also offers 3GB RAM and supports Cat 6 LTE speeds of 300Mbps, although most people in the UK will not be able to benefit from this just yet. EE has plans to bring 300Mbps services to most of the UK next year.
The Honor 6 has a 5in 1080p Full HD display, 445ppi resolution screen, rear-facing 13MP camera and 3,100mAh battery which Huawei claims lasts two full days.
The Honor 6 is available in black and white with 16GB or 32GB built-in storage, which can be expanded by an additional 64GB via microSD.
The Honor 6 will run Google's Android 4.4.2 Kitkat operating system, and the firm has yet to say whether it will see an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Huawei will be hoping that the Honor 6 sells well in the run up to Christmas, although it faces tough competition from the new iPhones and Samsung's Note 4 despite having the edge when it comes to price.
