Although smartphone cameras in general have shown improvement by leaps and bounds over the past year, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 in particular were singled out by reviewers as setting new standards for smartphone picture quality in 2014. However, PhoneArena points out that a new phone from Huawei is angling to beat them both in 2015 and it’s posted some comparative pictures taken with the device to make its case.
Huawei’s soon-to-be-unveiled handset, the Honor 6 Plus, will be officially announced in less than two weeks’ time, on December 16, but we already seem to be familiar with most of its hardware bells and whistles, features, and whatnot. It is already on preorder for $399 at Oppomart, and will sport a 5.5″ 1080p display, Huawei’s octa-core Kirin 930 chipset, clocked at 1.8 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage plus microSD slot, all backed by a hearty 3500 mAh battery. Surely, the main selling point of the Honor 6 Plus are the two 8 MP BSI cameras at the rear, which will obviously function much like the Duo Camera at the back of the HTC One (M8). While one of the rear-positioned cameras of the Honor 6 Plus takes care of the image itself, its peer captures depth information, which can be used to re-adjust the focal point afterwards and add some fancy blur effect to the picture.
