In Short

Honor, the sub-brand of Huawei, is bringing its first phone to the U.S. with the Honor 5X. While this may seem insignificant, it's a huge breakthrough for the company that previously kept out of the area. This mid-level smartphone will sport a 5.5-inch display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

With an unlocked price of just $199, the Honor 5X packs some impressive specs within it. In addition to the specs, Honor has opted for an all-metal construction to bring a premium feel to the phone, and it even packs a fingerprint sensor on the rear, like other flagships do. A full list of the specs include:
