Huawei announced the Honor 5X Play on October 10. However, the main launch of this month is going to be the Honor 5X with an all metal design. The phone is scheduled to be announced on October 27 and will reportedly revolutionize the sub-1000 Yuan market (appox. $157). Now, the same phone has been spotted in a video revealing most of the specifications and the design of the device.
Although the upcoming device bears the name Honor, the styling is quite different than the existing models in the range. First of all, the Honor 5X will come with an all metal body. Further, you can spot a fingerprint sensor at the back, which is not usually found on phones that cost less than $160.
As for the specs, the Honor 5X will reportedly come with a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display with Snapdragon 615 octa-core chip under the hood. There should be 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage on board, but we feel there will be a 2GB RAM base variant as well. At the back, you can expect a 13MP camera while up front, there will be a 5MP shooter. The phone will reportedly run on Android 5.1.1 out of the box.

Well, these are pretty good specs for a $157 smartphone and will further intensify the competition in the lower mid-range segment. We hope to get more information about the device in the coming days.
