Huawei has just launched the Honor 6 Plus and the manufacturer didn't hold back on the features. In an effort to compete in the cut-throat smartphone market, the Chinese manufacturer has definitely put some effort into this device.

The smartphone has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, support for NFC and LTE, as well as things like an infrared transmitter. Most notable of the specs, however, is the dual rear-cameras on the smartphone. Huawei claims that the dual rear-cameras place the effective pixel size at 1.98 microns, and the setup allows the user to even refocus photos after they've been captured.

A full list of specs is listed below:

  • 2 Ghz Huawei/Hipower Kirin 925 octa-core chipset (based on ARM's big.LITTLE technology)
  • 5.5-inch 1080p JDI negative LCD display
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 8 MP dual rear-cameras
  • 8 MP front-facing camera
  • 16/32 GB storage
  • 3600 mAh battery
  • IR transmitter
  • microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Dual-SIM support
  • NFC + LTE

The phone will come with Huawei's in-house OS called EMUI 3.0 which is more or less just a customized version of Android. Huawei is also offering things like 100 GB of free lifetime cloud storage and free access to Huawei's hotspots inside and outside of China.

The Honor 6 Plus will start at CN¥1,999 or about $320 for the 16 GB model. The 32 GB model will set you back CN¥2,499 or around $400 and will also come in a gold-toned variation.
