Huawei Honor 5X Launch Teased and Confirmed for October 27th; Coming With Fingerprint Scanner and Metal Chassis

Huawei Honor 5X is ready for launch, after it has been certified by the TENAA and leaked a few times. Huawei confirmed its debut, that will take place on the 27th this month and they also teased the product, as well as … “one more thing”.


That “one more thing” tagline is taken from Apple and could mean there’s a new handset, accessory or even tablet coming. Judging by the teasers, it’s a camera or camera accessory. Back to the Huawei Honor 5X its arrival couldn’t be timed better, since we’ve just finished testing the Huawei Honor 4X these days. The handset brings a full metal chassis, with a rounded back and a fingerprint scanner below the camera.


The facade features a seemingly edge to edge screen, much like the one of the Huawei P8. This one is a 5.5 inch Full HD display and Honor 5X’s specs include a Snapdragon 615 processor, plus a 13 megapixel main camera and a front 5 MP shooter. There’s also Android 5.1.1 in the mix and 2 or 3 GB of RAM. It appears that the 2 GB RAM/16 GB storage model will cost $157, while the 3 GB RAM 16 GB model will go for $188.
