Living up to its “For the Brave” identity, upstart brand Honor, takes aim at the top names in the industry as it launches the Honor 6 Plus, Honor 4X and Honor 4C.

“We are very proud to bring to the local market three smartphones that respect the young digital Filipino. True to our “Honor” brand, these devices recognize the brave ones who can make bold decisions, go against the trend and know what they really want and need in a phone—high-end specifications, usable features, and an honorable price, said Nino Carandang, Honor Business Unit Manager, during the launch event held May 12, 2015 in Makati.


The Honor 6 Plus is a bold new device for a new digital world. Boasting of improved power, speed, and a unique dual rear camera, the Honor 6 Plus is for the evolved consumer who is looking for a new kind of best—useable features and not just aesthetic gimmickry.

Honor 6 Plus

Compared to other 5.5” smartphones, the Honor 6 Plus has the biggest screen ratio at 78.2 percent, with only 2.8mm ultra-thin border, allowing you to better appreciate your photos and videos on its premium HD screen with 1080P resolution and 403 PPI (pixels per inch).

Utilizing a JDI IPS-NEO negative LCD screen, LTP (Low Temperature Poly Silicon), the Honor 6 Plus also has 30 percent better resolution than a regular IPS screen offering 1500:1 super high contrast, and an industry high of 85 percent color saturation making images appear clearer and more lifelike.

This excellent screen is protected by 3rd Generation Corning Gorilla Glass, which is three times stronger, and provides a superior and accurate touch experience. The back of the Honor 6 plus is built even tougher with bullet-proof grade material, and a six layer composite, the bottom layer is made of fiberglass, (the most important material used in military helmets being both lightweight and strong).


For those who want to take their mobile photography to the next level, the Honor 6 Plus is the first smartphone in the Honor series to feature a parallel dual-camera that offers the ability to first CAPTURE an image, then FOCUS on a key area, and then ADJUST the light exposure.

The Honor 6 Plus Eagle-Eye Camera imitates the structure of an eagle eye with an optimized 2.5 image processor engine giving it the ability to capture excellent images. The Parallel dual-camera uses “Binocular Vision” data, to quickly calculate focus distance and capture image while the 3IE Algorithmic Engine imitates a brain, using “Depth Perception” to determine and record a detailed, in-depth photograph .

With the Honor 6 Plus’ upgraded low light shooting ability, say goodbye to blurred night images as the dual lens offers double the amount of light captured and double the light sensitivity of a single lens, reducing image noise and making night photos appear clearer, brighter, and in better detail.

Those who love to take selfies will also be able to capture better self-portraits, and “groufies” with an improved 8MP front-facing camera and panoramic portrait mode.

A beautiful 5.5 inch screen requires a capable battery that can last as long as you do that is why the Honor 6 Plus is packed with a 3,600 mAh battery, which means it can last more than 2 days with normal use and even longer with ultra-power saving mode.

Powered by the lightning fast Kirin 925 octa-core processor and 3GB RAM, the Honor 6 Plus can handle any application you throw at it from playing HD games and multitasking apps. But despite its power, the Honor 6+ still runs at a cool temperature thanks to its graphite design.

“The Honor 6 Plus combines the visual appeal and concept of style with functionally and features found only in higher priced smart phones, says Carandang. It has been dubbed as the “flagship killer” and rightfully so because it can go head to head with any flagship device and surpass those that are priced even twice as much.”

“It even has Dual Card, Dual Usage, Dual 4G, which means you never have to carry two phones again. It is certainly for the mobile user who wants to cross boundaries and embrace the benefits of sharing things and ideas with each other,” he added.



Accompanying the Honor 6 Plus, the brand also announced the release of its two mid-range devices the Honor 4C and 4X.

Honor 4X

The Honor 4X provides great performance and great value with a 64-bit processor a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP front camera, dual-SIM technology, a long lasting battery and superfast wireless connectivity with 4G.

The Honor 4X’s 64-bit 1.2 GHz Octa-core processor provides 40% better performance than other 32-bit handsets, providing you with more power to stay connected and do the things you love. The Honor 4X sports a 5.5” HD screen with 16 million colors that provide an excellent visual experience whether its playing games or watching movies.

With a battery life of up to 48-hours of battery life and up to 7 days in ultra power mode, the Honor 4X certainly can keep up even with the busiest schedule.

The Honor 4X likewise has a range of camera features to inspire you to take more beautiful photographs and with Ultra snapshot, off-screen photo mode, all-focus mode, map view and a camera that can take photos in 0.6 seconds, you’ll never miss an opportunity to capture those precious moments.

Honor 4C

Finally, for those looking for an entry-level handset without the entry level specifications, there is the Honor 4C offering a 720p display, 13MP camera and an octa-core CPU.

Do more on its 5-inch 720p display without the slowdown with the Honor 4C HiSilicon Kirin 620 SoC, 1.2GHz octa-core Cortex A53 CPU, 2GB RAM. It has an 8GB internal memory which can be expanded via microSD slot (up to 32GB). It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and has the upgraded EMUI 3.0 for more personalization options.

The Honor 6 Plus priced at PhP 17,490.00. The Honor 4X and the 4C is now available at Php 8,290.00 and PhP 6,390.00 beginning May 12.
