Huawei Announces New Affordable Android Phone With Metal Body

Huawei Honor 6A is the latest member of an affordable Honor smartphone lineup. The handset will go on pre-order in China on May 25 from Vmall and JD, while sales start on June 1. Four four color options will be available and the price tag is set at around $110/€100.

While it doesn't have eye-catching design or specifications, it is still a very decent phone for that price. It has a unibody metal design with a fingerprint sensor on the back, 2/16 GB or 3/32 GB memory configuration, a 13 MP rear camera and a 3,020 mAh battery that promises up to 12 hours of video.
