Huawei is preparing to launch its latest flagship device, Honor 6, which we know by its codename “Mulan,” at a special event on June 24th at the Beijing National Stadium.
According to reports from China — and brought to our attention by GSMinsider — Huawei wants users to think of its smartphone as a rival to the upcoming iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6, even though none of these have been announced yet (and won’t be for another few months, at least).
Nevertheless, there’s a reason the Chinese firm is taking this route, comparing its phone with best-of-the-best devices. From what we’ve heard before, the Honor 6 will be a super-phone that could easily take on current flagship devices as Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3 and HTC One M8.
Specs wise, this phone will rock Huawei’s own Kirin 920 chip, which could prove more powerful than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805. You got that right, not the current Snapdragon 801, but the forthcoming 805 model. The Kirin 920 will rely on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture, combining four powerful Cortex-A15 with four battery-friendly Cortex-A7 cores.
Rest of the specs will apparently include a 5-inch full HD screen, LTE connectivity support, 13-megapixel main camera and 3GB of RAM. Yeah, we can’t wait to try out this bad boy.
