Huawei launches Honor 6 Plus handset
Chinese vendor unveils latest flagship alongside Spree 4X, Honor HD TV Box
Chinese smartphone vendor Huawei launched the latest additions to its devices portfolio, at a special event in Beijing, including the Honor 6 Plus and Spree 4X smartphones and the company's Honor TV Box.
The launch event was held to celebrate the Honor range's first anniversary, Huawei said. The product line has since done well for the company, which cited "impressive sales results" at the event. Unit sales hit over 20m for the year and sales revenue reached $3bn, representing a nearly thirty-fold increase, according to Huawei.
The Honor 6 Plus is powered by a Kirin 925 octa-core chipset and features a dual 8MP camera. It is designed to provide 4G LTE CAT6 connectivity with a download speed of up to 300 Mbps, which Huawei hails as "the fastest in the industry". It comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p JDI negative liquid crystal screen and a 3600 mAh battery.
The Spree 4X, a premium-end Honor handset, boasts the company's new 64-bit Kirin processor and supports "a wide range of network spectrums worldwide".
The Honor TV Box is designed for 4K Ultra HD delivery.
"In the future, Honor hopes to cater to different consumer demands and seek partnerships with like-minded companies," said Jeff Liu, president of Huawei Honor. "Our 2015 target is to achieve 40m units [in] shipment[s] and $5bn in revenue; and in 2016, Huawei Honor will [look to achieve] $10bn in revenue."
