Huawei has been selling its Honor-branded smartphones in the UK for a while now, but so far only through third-party retailers and only in SIM-free and unlocked fashion. That’s about to change, though.
Three is going to become the exclusive operator partner for the Huawei Honor 6 Plus in the UK. The phone will become available to buy with Three’s contracts, and select Three stores across the UK will showcase its design and features.
Thus, Three customers will be able to “experience” the Honor 6 Plus before they buy one. If you aren’t convinced by Three’s plans, you’ll also be able to pick up an Honor 6 Plus sans contract for just £250. A clear timeline for the launch hasn’t been revealed yet, but it’s safe to say that it should happen pretty soon.
The Honor 6 Plus sports a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, dual 8 MP rear cameras with LED flash, an 8 MP front-facing snapper, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,600 mAh battery. It’s powered by Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 925 SoC, pairing a quad-core Cortex-A15 and a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU on a big.LITTLE platform, and boasting support for LTE Cat.6 networks (with theoretical peek download speeds of up to 300Mbps).
