The honor 6A Pro has been teased for quite a while on honor Malaysia’s Facebook page. Many have guessed that the honor 6A Pro will be making its appearance here in Malaysia with pre-orders that were opened while honor Malaysia were still teasing, and today it is officially available in stores.

The honor 6A Pro doesn’t aim to blow your mind with its specifications or an ultra-wide display. That’s for the Huawei nova 2i to do. What it offers is a good value proposition with a Snapdragon 430 under the hood and 3GB of RAM. Storage is well accounted for too, with 32GB of internal storage and support for 128GB microSD cards.

A lonely 13MP rear camera with PDAF focuses in just 0.5 seconds, while a 5MP front camera takes care of the selfie lovers. The 5″ 720p display is a poor choice in 2017, but battery life is usually more essential than screen sharpness at the entry level. It is common to see devices in this price range sacrificing resolution for better battery life. Speaking of which, the 3020 mAh battery in the honor 6A Pro promises 12 hours of video playback and 10 hours of 4G web surfing.

All of that hardware is encased in a 8.22mm chassis made of metal, belying its price tag. The honor 6A Pro runs EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.0 Nougat, but there is no mention of an update to the Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 though. It will be available in Grey and Gold for just RM699.

Pokdepinion: The honor 6A Pro is very affordable but doesn’t really offer much more than the honor 6X which is just a mere RM200 more but offers much better specifications across the board.
