The new Huawei Honor 5X will be launched in Europe on February 4, 2016, three days after its first appearance in the United States. Its commercial debut in Europe is taking place at a live event scheduled at 2:30 PM (GMT), and the event shall last 7 hours.
People are getting more interest in cheap handsets that offer them a set of varied features at a low-cost, which is what Huawei does very well. If you are looking for a cutting edge handset, the Honor 5X is definitely not for you; it is a rather modest device compared to other popular devices such as Samsung Galaxy S and Apple iPhone. You should not expect miracles from a $200 handset. But you can expect a 5.5-inch display with a full HD (1080p) resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset with an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, dual-SIM functionality, a nifty fingerprint sensor, and a metallic design.
The Honor 5X further packs 16 GB of internal storage space, expandable via microSD, a 13-megapixel main camera with dual-tone dual-LED flash, a 5-megapixel front shooter, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The smartphone comes with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, but will receive an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow as well as regular security patches.
Huawei has already listed the Honor 5X on vMall, European online store, which you can use to register and get a discount offer.

Honor President, George Zhao
