The 5-inch HD Blade D6 is just 6.95mm thick and weighs 120g. It appears to be a slightly leaner version of the S6 announced in January. The 4G device has an aluminum alloy body and features a quad-core 1.3GHz chipset. It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The D6 has an 88-degree wide-angle 5 megapixel front facing camera and an ultra-HD 13 megapixel rear camera. It comes in pink, gold, grey and silver and will first be available in Australia, Russia and Japan.
The Smart Home gateway enables users to communicate with home devices ranging from light switches to baby monitors via ZigBee and LTE connections. A mobile application for smartphones and tablets allows quick and easy control over a broad range of smart home devices, covering home management, home security, and health and safety, the company said.
