Huawei may launch the Honor 6X in India on December 23rd. The 6X was launched in October in China packing the Kirin 655 SoC built on a 16nm architecture with 3 GB and 4 GB RAM options. But the highlight of the smartphone are its dual cameras on the back, the Honor 6X packs a 12MP main camera and then a secondary 2MP camera to capture depth information, something we have seen with previous-gen HTC flagships. The second camera allows for creating artificial bokeh, re-focus even after the image has been captured and several other effects.

The 8 MP front-facing camera too gets a wide angle lens and should appeal more to the youth. You also get a metal body with the Honor 6X and a fingerprint sensor on the back. The phone curves on the sides making it easier to grip and hold. In the front, there's a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display covered in hardened 2.5D curved glass for protection.

You also get dual-SIM 4G VoLTE capabilities with the Honor 6X but it comes with a hybrid SIM card slot, so to expand storage you would have to sacrifice a SIM slot.
