At its original $249.99 MSRP, the Honor 6X was already a great phone for the money. The 6X was further discounted to $150 during the Black Friday deal frenzy, which made it even more appealing. But now, you can grab one of these for just $139.99, a full 30% off of its MSRP, from Amazon and B&H. Read More

This list is no longer updated. You can find a full list of devices that support Project Treble here.
One of the most important features included in Android 8.0 Oreo is 'Project Treble,' Google's attempt to modularize Android. We covered it in detail here, but in a nutshell, Treble separates all the low-level device drivers (known as the 'vendor implementation') from the rest of Android. This makes updating phones/tablets to the latest version of Android much easier for manufacturers, as long as they already support Treble. Read More
Among the impending Black Friday deals are some good prices on phones. One of those is the Honor 6X, a device that was already cheap. Now, however, you can pick it up for just $149.99, which is $50 off the going price. Read More
Huawei announced a permanent price reduction for the Mate 9 and Honor 6X just yesterday, but that's not as low as the Honor 6X will go. This phone is already on sale for $175 via Amazon, which is $25 off the already reduced price. This is getting to be a pretty attractive deal. Read More
The Huawei Mate 9 and Honor 6X are a pair of very good phones. The prices for both of them have usually been around $599 and $249 respectively, but they have occasionally gone on sale for less. Now it looks like both phones are dropping in price permanently. Read More
The Honor 6X began receiving the Nougat-based EMUI 5.0 update back in early May. It's been nearly three months since then, and Huawei has finally released this budget smartphone's kernel source code. You can now expect to see more development for the 6X in the near future. Read More
We've seen plenty of good phones and tablets go on sale as part of Prime Day, but we haven't seen a device from Huawei go on sale yet. If you've been looking for a new budget phone, and none of the previous items interested you, the Honor 6X is a lightning deal on Amazon for just $199. Read More
When the Honor 6X launched earlier this year, you could say that we here at AP were unimpressed. Sure, the phone packed in a lot of good specs for $250, but it shipped with Marshmallow, a version of Android that was over a year old at that point (well, it still is). In March, Huawei's sub-brand launched a beta program for 6X owners to try out Nougat and the much improved EMUI 5 — the company promised that Android 7.0 would roll out in the first half of 2017. Looks like that may actually happen. Read More
