Honor 6+ hits the UK with sub-£300 asking price

The Honor 6+ has finally made it to the UK; with the super-mid-range handset setting wannabe owners back just £299.99.

Having been confirmed for a UK release back at MWC in March, the flagship device is now available for purchase online and, for the first time, through physical retail outlets.

Network provider Three has signed an exclusive partnership with the Chinese manufacturer to take the 5.5-inch Honor 6+ offline and into physical retail outlets.

“Designed for digital natives, we’re delighted that the Honor 6+ is now available throughout the UK,” said Frank Yao, founder and MD of Honor in Western Europe.

The Honor 6+ embodies our philosophy to bring change to the mobile industry, and by listening to our fans, we’re continuing to reflect feedback in the premium quality of our smartphones.”

The handset pairs its oversized Full HD display with a powerful octa-core Kirin 925 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD.

Running a massive 3600mAh battery, the Dual-SIM device adds dual 8-megapixel rear-mounted cameras which combine to shoot impressively detailed shots.

A further 8-megapixel camera sits on the device’s fore.

While Three is the only high-street seller of the device, the handset is also available online through Amazon.
