Huawei has officially announced its Honor 5X smartphone, the latest affordable handset that offers surprisingly good specs and the tinge of premium build. As we have become used to however, the Honor 5X will only be available in Huawei's China homeland, at least initially.In many ways this handset are fantastic, offering metal built and specs that even rival some flagships (here's looking at you HTC). The Honor 5X comes with the following specs: Platform: Android 5.1 with EMUI Scale: 151.3 x 76.3 x 7.9mm Weight: 158g Screen: 5.5-inch with a resolution 1080 x 1920 pixels Processor: Snapdragon 615, 64-bit RAM: 3GB/2GB, variant depending Cameras: 13-megapixel rear with f/2.0 lens, 5MP front Internal storage: 16GB Battery: 3000mAh Of course, the overall quality of this package will be determined by the price, and we are pleased to say that the Honor 5X is a full on bargain. The 32GB entry level variant with 2GB of RAM will cost the equivalent of $157, while the 64GB 3GB version cost $220 at launch.
