Huawei has been one of the leading smartphone manufacturers in China and it is readying up a phablet version of the Honor 6 dubbed as the Honor 6X. It has just passed through TENNA, which is basically China's certification authority just like what FCC is in the US. Two variants of the device have been passed: one for China Unicom and the other China Mobile. Barring the carrier connectivity, the two versions are essentially the same.
What is interesting to know about it is the fact that it comes with 3 camera units. Yes, you read it right. It has a dual-camera at the rear with a resolution is 8 megapixels and a front-facing camera. It is unclear if it's meant for stereoscopic pictures like the one on the HTC EVO 3D or for depth sensing, similar to the camera arrangement on the HTC One M8. The camera records 1080p videos and seeing the fact that both the cameras look identical, it looks like that Huawei is indeed planning to bring back 3D cameras with it.
Huawei Honor 6X Specifications
- 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels
