Never heard of smartphone manufacturer, Honor? You’re not alone

At CES 2017 we saw the unveiling of a brand new smartphone by a fairly young group called Honor. But where did Honor come from? And is this new(-ish) company something you should know about?

Absolutely.

Sub-brand of Huawei

Honor was established in 2013, and exists as a sub-brand of Chinese manufacturer, Huawei. Honor themselves have likened the relationship to that of BMW and Mini.

The group was invented to accommodate China’s want for a more affordable line of smartphones, and a year later it began to expand to other countries.

Honor debuted at CES 2016 with the Huawei Honor 5X, which like all the other Honor smartphones, was only available to buy online. And the trend continues following this year’s announcement of the 6X, 8 and 5c, which will all be available to order from our website soon. Let’s meet the phones…

Honor 5c

The Honor 5c is the entry-level handset in the current range, but that’s not to say it’s missing out on impressive specs. It has a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a 13MP camera, 8MP front-facing lens, and 16GB of internal storage. If that’s not enough room, there’s also space for a microSD card of up to 256GB.

Honor 6X

The Honor 6X is the biggest of the trio, with a large 5.5-inch Full HD screen, impressive dual lens (12MP and 2MP), for those arty background blur shots, and 32GB of storage inside. And just like the 5c, that can be expanded with a microSD card.

Honor 8

The Honor 8 is the flagship smartphone of the range. It has the same screen as the 5c, but that’s where the similarities end. On the back of the phone there are two 12MP lenses, and a third sensor the front meauring in at 8MP. There’s also a huge octa-core processor, 32GB of storage, and a massive 4GB RAM.

Looks-wise, it's got a very unique design. The back of the phone is crafted using 15 layers of glass, and we've never seen a design like it. It reflects light in vertical bars, that cross over each other as you adjust its position. Just check the blue version in the GIF below, and see for youself...

You’ll be able to order all three phones from Carphone Warehouse’s website very soon, so make sure you keep it with The Lowdown for the latest information.
