Honor just announced its new budget smartphone which will succeed the Honor X6a that launched nearly a year ago. The latest offering sees some tweaks coming from the previous launch. In this article, we will look into the Honor X6b in further detail including its price in Nepal.

Honor X6b Overview

Design and Display

Aesthetically, the Honor X6b looks the same as its predecessor. Given that, it comes with flat frames, a squircle camera island, and a monotone finish. This phone is available in four colourways: Forest Green, Starry Purple, Ocean Cyan, and Midnight Black.

Moving on to the front, we can see that the display also remains unchanged. That being said, it is a 6.56-inch TFT LCD panel with a 20.15:09 aspect ratio. Meanwhile, the resolution on the Honor X6b screen is 90Hz while the resolution and peak brightness are HD+ and 780 nits respectively. Other than that, it also offers DC dimming to minimise eye strain when using the phone in the dark.

Performance

The Honor X6b comes with the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset under the hood. It offers a comparatively better performance than the Helio G36 on the last-gen despite being an older chip. Matter of fact, the current silicon comes with a better core type and performs over twice as well in benchmarks despite having a lower peak clock speed.

This time around the phone also comes in more configurations. You can now get the Honor X6b in 6GB + 256GB trim, which offers double the storage from the previous offering. In terms of software, the phone has been upgraded to Android 14 with MagicOS 8.0 on top.

Camera and the rest

In the optics department, the Honor X6b changes into a dual camera setup by ridding of the macro lens that served barely any purpose. As a result, we are left with a combination of a 50MP primary shooter and a 2MP depth sensor. In the meantime, there are two additional cutouts on the camera island, one of which is an LED flash and the other is a vacant space with a white circular pattern. Likewise, a 5MP unit is looking at you on the front.

For power, the Honor X6b relies on a 5,200 mAh cell that supports 35W of charging speed. This phone comes with dual SIM with 4G support, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth v5.1, and NFC in limited models for wireless connectivity. On the other hand, the wired connections are handled by USB Type-C and the good old 3.5mm headphone jack.

Honor X6b Price in Nepal and Availability

The company has listed this phone on their website, however, no price has been set as of now. It will definitely arrive here in the future, given the popularity of the brand. When it does arrive here eventually, we expect the Honor X6b price in Nepal to be similar to its predecessor i.e. around NPR 17,999.
