Honor 6+ set for May Day release exclusively on Three

Soon after Huawei cleared its name from security concerns in the UK after a long drawn enquiry commissioned by the government, it is set to release its next flagship the Honor 6+ on May Day.

To be available exclusively through Three's online stores and retail outlets, Honor 6+ will come with both Pay-As-You-Go and 24-month contract options.

As added incentives, Three will offer 4G data in 4G-enabled areas as well as calls to 18 international countries at no extra cost.

Here's a simple list that should help you figure out a deal:

So while Three may go all out to market its offers with a star-studded release, a look at the phone suggests spending on it won't really be too bad.

 Honor 6+ will hardly give you any chance to say no. Competing with any other top flagship phone released so far this year, it packs a 5.5 inch HD display with 1080x1920 resolution, a 8MP primary camera specializing in low-light conditions, an impressive 3600 mAH battery that promises a couple of days of moderate usage, an internal storage of 32GB, a 3GB RAM and a 1.8Hz octa-core Kirin 925 chipset.

 As comfortable as we are with the on-paper-specs, we'd still suggest a hands-on feel before signing up for any of the deals being offered by Three come May 1.

Every one of Three's 360 stores in the UK will have one live Honor 6+ phone for customers to walk in and try them out, which removes the risk of pre-ordering the phone without knowing what it holds.

 Three will also let you buy the phone in-store by paying an upfront starting at  £19 before signing up for a 24 month contract. If you prefer the Pay-As-You-Go route, you can make the phone yours for just a £299 one-time payment.

 In case you're willing to wait, we'll be back with a hands-on review as soon as we can grab hold of a brand new Honor 6+ come May.
