Running Android 5.1 Lollipop, the device comes equipped with a 13MP rear camera along with a 5MP front facing camera with features such as Auto Flash, Continuos Shooting, Face detection, Geo tagging, High Dynamic Range mode (HDR) and Touch to focus.
The Honor 5X is a premium looking device with an aircraft grade metal body and a fingerprint sensor which, the company claims, takes only 0.5 sec to unlock the device.
The Huawei Honor 5X is available on sale on Amazon and Newegg starting January 31. While it does not have quite as many bells and whistles as more expensive models of smartphones, it does offer quite a lot for $199 off-contract, like an aluminum-clad GSM phone with a fingerprint reader, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, according to Engadget. It is powered by a 64 bit 1.5GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 Processor with 2GB of RAM.
