Huawei finally unveiled its newest flagship in China, and Huawei Honor 6 Plus release date in Asian countries will be announced soon.

It is said to be the Honor 6's successor and the premium variant.

According to Uber Gizmo, the Honor 6 Plus pulls off a design similar to Apple's iPhone 6 Plus and borrowed some features on the previous iPhone like its metallic bezel, but CNET notes that it is actually made of plastic.

Engadget also added that, Huawei was quick to point out that the Honor 6 Plus bezels are smaller compared to the iPhone 6 Plus. Though they share the same screen of 5.5 inch, the Honor 6 Plus features a better screen resolution of 1080p.

On the other hand, Huawei took a big leap on the Honor 6 Plus' camera. It is the first phone from the Chinese tech firm to feature a dual camera setup that we have first seen on HTC'S One M8  as an attempt to change mobile photography.

In comparison to HTC One M8's duo camera, Honor 6 Plus sports  two 8-megapixel rear cameras, and Huawei claims that the combination of the two cameras increases the pixel size to 1.98 microns that results in sharper images. It also features different photo effects including aperture adjustments from f/0.95 to f/16, and filters such as tilt shift, sketch, and comics, and an 8MP front camera.

Its  connectivity features comprise of an NFC, TD/FDD-LTE Cat 6, and dual-SIM slots. An infrared transmitter is also added  that allows the Huawei Honor 6 Plus to remote control TV, Hi-Fi system, and air conditioner.

With these whopping features, Huawei also added 100GB of cloud storage and free access to more than 8 million Wi-Fi hotspots in China.

Huawei Honor 6 Plus release date in China starts this week and priced lower compared to high-end phones. The 16GB, 3G-only version sans NFC costs around CN ¥1,999 or $325 and CN¥2,499 or about $400 for the 4G variant.

Meanwhile, according GSM Arena Huawei Honor 6 Plus won't be released in Europe as confirmed by Huawei's spokesperson.

"Honor is driven by its consumers, the digital natives and, in Asia, the customer demand for phablets is very high so we have developed the Honor 6+ to this need."

The spokesperson added, "In Europe there is currently less demand for phablets, our focus at the moment continues to be on meeting audience needs with the high quality Honor 6 and Honor 3C devices."
