Huawei intros the Honor 4X, a 64-bit smartphone with impressive battery life
Huawei this week announced the Honor 4X - its first smartphone to be powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (quad-core, 1.2 GHz). The handset was first spotted last week, when we told you that it could cost $130. In reality, the Honor X costs more, though it’s still a pretty affordable device.

Customers in China can pre-order the Huawei Honor 4X for 1299 CNY (about $212), and the smartphone should start shipping on November 6.

Although it currently runs Android 4.4 KitKat customized with Huawei’s Emotion 3.0 UI, the Honor 4X will certainly be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop - not just because Lollipop can truly use the 64-bit capabilities of the Snapdragon 410, but also because the handset’s capacitive keys are designed to resemble the software keys that the new version of the OS comes with.

Software aside, the Honor 4X features a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, LTE connectivity, a 13 MP Sony-made rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, and 2 GB of RAM. The handset is 7.9 mm thin, and comes with a 3000 mAh battery that reportedly provides a usage time of up to 72 hours (3 days) - which is quite impressive, even for a 720p smartphone.

Huawei didn’t say if the Honor 4X would be released globally. But we’ll let you know when we hear more about this.

America is too tied up with carriers, that's one of the problems that manufacturers usually have to curve out.

huawei is bad with updates... usually they dont update their phones or take too long to update... thats the only problem with chinese OEMs, otherwise they are great phones in good price

That was a year ago and maybe some 100$ dollar handset. Things are different for phones released 2014.

Wow those are some pretty amazing specs for a 200 phone. And how they managed to put 3000mah in a 7.2mm body is insane..

It's 7.9mm, not 7.2. Sony put a 3100mah in its 7.3mm Xperia Z3, which is even crazier because not only is it thinner than this phone, it almost certainly has a smaller footprint because of its 5.2" screen size.
(Though the Z3 has pretty big top/bottom bezels... :/ )

Phonearena made a mistake when it was posted. (Shocker). Said 7.2mm before

Yeah they do that all the time. It bothers me...

Honor 6 is 7.5mm and smaller footprint than Z3 (139.6 x 69.7 x 7.5 mm versus 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm) and has 3100mAh battery.

All's well. But what's the internal storage's starting minimum? ftloG let it not be 8GB.

16 GB of internal storage and dual-standby SIM and it'll be on my radar.

For a budget phone, its actually good looking. They didn't just slap something together.

huawei is following samsung's model of business, which is to liter the market with options... but now the time is changing, it is creating confusion to have too many options

I'm actually anticipating a mini version of this. Never mind if it becomes thicker, just maintain a 4"+ display and it's current battery capacity and it will be a hit.

Wow. That battery life is pretty impressive, considering how the Note 2 has already very good battery life with a 3100mAh battery running a 5.5" 720p display also.
