Huawei, the Chinese phone manufacturer, recently launched a new brand called Honor. A mere few months later and its launching a new handset in the Honor 6 Plus.

So how does this phone hope to top the 300Mbps Cat 6 LTE and two day battery of the affordable and attractive Honor 6? For one thing a new camera technology that promises better photos.

The Honor 6 Plus will use dual 8-megapixel rear camera sensors. The result should be a photo with 1.98 micron pixels – similar to HTC's Duo Camera that delivers 2-micron UltraPixel shots. This should mean higher sensitivity for clearer images. It also allows for refocusing of images after they've been captured, again not a new offering but this will be done natively rather than in after effects, meaning between f/0.95 to f/1.6 offerings.

The phone itself will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display and Kirin 925 octa-core CPU with low-power coprocessor and 3GB of RAM. There will be 32GB storage and a 3,600mAh battery plus Cat 6 LTE, dual-SIM, NFC, infrared, plus microSD up to 128GB.

The software is a heavily modified EMUI 3.0 Android system with great extras like double clicking the volume rocker while the screen is off to quickly snap a photo.

The Honor 6 Plus will cost $320 or about £200 for 16GB, 3G NFC-free version and $400 or £250 for the 4G model also available in gold.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
