The Honor 5X appears to be receiving January security updates ahead of the smartphone going on sale in the U.S. later this month. The 5X isn't expected to hit shelves officially until January 30, but at least you'll know said patches will be applied prior to availability.

The update, according to a screenshot shared by an Honor 5X owner over on our forums, totals 111MB, which should bump the handset up to 'January 1 security patch level'.
