Meet the Honor 6 by Honor.

Don't be surprised if you haven't heard of Honor before. It's a new brand name Huawei has launched for a range of phones for Europe designed to provide a high-end mobile experience at a more affordable price.

The Honor 6 is the first phone to launch under the Honor name and will be on sale on Amazon for £250 SIM free. US pricing and availability is yet to be announced.
