Huawei Honor 5X – Available for Pre-Order for $199!


At CES 2016, many new gadgets were announced.  However, not all of them have an availability date – the Huawei Honor 5X does.

Huawei has had the Honor line overseas (released last October) and it is now bringing the 5X here to the U.S of A.  The Huawei 5X is a mid-tier phone dressed up in high end finishes.  For example, the Honor 5X has a finger print sensor – there is no other device in the market under $200 that can make that claim.

The Honor 5X has a 5.5 inch HD display (1080 x 1920 pixels, 401 ppi pixel density – that’s 1080p), Snapdragon 615 processor, 3GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front facing camera.Other cool features include a dual SIM (nano and micro SIM), and expandable storage – up to 128GB!

You can use the Honor 5X with AT&T and T-Mobile here in the U.S. along with their pre-paid variants: Cricket Wireless, Straight Talk, etc.

The device, will not be shipping with Marshmallow, it will be shipping with Lollipop, Android 5.1, with an update promised for the future.
