Huawei announced the Honor 4X mid-range smartphone back in October 2014. Now, it looks like the company is all set to release its successor, the Huawei Honor 5X in the coming weeks. The phone was recently spotted on TENAA, the Chinese certification website and the listing revealed a few details about the device.
As you can see from the image, the Huawei Honor 5X comes with a three stage rear design, similar to what we saw in the company’s previous releases like the Mate 7 and the Huawei P8. The camera at the back is slightly protruding (you can see that in one of the side view pictures) and comes with a dual LED flash as well. It looks like Huawei is really set to intensify the competition in the 1000 Yuan (appox. $157) market with this phone, as it comes with a fingerprint sensor as well.
Unfortunately, we don’t have much idea about the specifications of the device. But going with the current specs on 1000 Yuan smartphones, we can expect a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display with Snapdragon 615 or MT6753 on board. There should be 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. As for the rear camera, we can expect a 13MP shooter like most phones in this price range.
What will really differentiate the Huawei Honor 5X from the crowd will be its fingerprint sensor and the all metal design. The phone looks premium in built and hence, Huawei might find quite a number of takers for this device if priced correctly.
Since the phone has hit TENAA, expect more information about the new Honor 5X pretty soon. [source]
