After weeks of speculation and leaks, the beautiful Honor 5X with an all metal body has been finally unveiled. The phone will join the likes of other recently announced metal phones like Meizu Metal in the budget mid-range segment.
The Honor 5X comes with a 5.5-inch FHD display with Snapdragon 616 clocked at 1.7GHz and Adreno 405 GPU. There will be 16GB of storage with 2GB / 3GB RAM versions. You also have a MicroSD card slot to further expand the storage on board.
At the back, there will be a 13MP camera with 5MP front facing shooter. The battery is quite decent too, 3000mAh with fast charge 3.0 that promises up to 50% charging in 30 minutes. There’s a fingerprint sensor on board as well, at the back which is quite fast as it can recognize a fingerprint in just 0.4s. As for connectivity, there’s dual SIM card slots, both of which support 4G LTE networks.
Like most of Huawei’s Honor smartphones, the Honor 5X is quite competitive too as it starts at just $157 for the 2GB variant and around $220 for the 3GB variant.
The phone is definitely a looker with its shiny all metal body. It comes in gold, grey and silver shades. You can check out the images of the device from down below.
