Huawei’s sub-brand Honor finally launched Honor 6X in India at starting price of Rs 12,999. The company held an event in New Delhi to announce the price and availability details of its latest mid-range offering. To recall, Honor 6X was first spotted at CES 2017 earlier this month. The biggest attraction concerning Honor 6X has to be its dual-camera at the back. We don’t intend to exaggerate, but Apple isn’t the first one to introduce dual-camera with its iPhone 7 Plus. In fact, the traces go back to 2014 when Honor introduced its first smartphone featuring dual-camera — Honor 6 Plus. The company also introduced Honor 8 last month, which is currently retailing at around Rs 30,000. Honor’s love for dual-camera doesn’t stop here. The company is also working on yet another dual-camera smartphone dubbed Honor DUK TL-30.
