Huawei made some waves during CES 2016 a couple weeks back when they announced they will be bringing their lineup of smartphones to the US later this quarter. One of those devices is the Honor 5X which by Huawei's subsidiary company. But today, the company is launching the Honor 5X to the Malaysian market and the Honor 5X will be the perfect companion to the recently launched Honor Band Z1

Huawei Honor 5X Key Specifications: 

  • 5.5-inch 1080P IPS display
  • Snapdragon 615 CPU @ 1.5GHz
  • 16GB memory + microSD slot
  • 2GB RAM
  • 13MP f2.0 rear camera
  • 5MP front camera
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • 151.3 x 76.3 x 8.2mm (158g)
  • dual SIM LTE
  • EMUI 3.1

What makes the new Honor 5X impressive is not just it's RM 899 price tag but it is also about the features that the device brings to the table. The premium metal build is one thing but the fingerprint scanner on the back is something that you don't often see on a device this price. Compared to the OnePlus X or the original OnePlus One, the Honor 5X looks like a steal both in terms of pricing and also what you physically get.
To round things up, the Honor 5X is also a dual SIM LTE device and unlike other competing dual SIM devices out there, the Honor 5X relies on a dedicated microSD card slot so you don't sacrifice the second SIM slot for extra storage.
