Honor 6+ UK release date and price confirmed

Having taken its first official bow at MWC 2015 last month, the Honor 6+ has now been dated and priced for its UK release.

The latest high-spec, low-priced handset from the Huawei spin-off brand, the Honor 6+ will be available for purchase from May 1 and will set wannabe owners back a penny shy of £300.

For those who simply can’t wait that long to splash the cash, the 5.5-inch phone will be made available for pre-order through Amazon from next Monday, April 6.

“The Honor 6+ is the latest and loudest statement from Honor that proves the company’s dedication to producing high quality devices to ‘always on’ digital natives,” the Chinese manufacturer stated.

An official spokesperson added: “The new, premium device speaks volumes about Honor’s commitment to shake up the mobile phone space across Europe.

Boasting a 5.5-inch, 1080p Full HD display, the 6+ is, like its iPhone-branded namesake, Honor’s flagship offering.

The phone features dual 8-megapixel rear-mounted cameras, with the two shooters combining to form 13-megapixel images. A secondary, 8-megapixel camera sits up front.

Under the hood, a quad-core Kirin 925 processor runs the show alongside 3GB of RAM and Google’s Android OS. A sizeable 3600mAh Lithium-Polymer battery should keep the phone running well into a second day.
