You can now pre-order Honor 5X in the US: a sleek 5.5-incher with metal body and fingerprint scanner

Honor, a brand of Huawei, is bringing one of its most alluring phones to the United States: the Honor 5X. Starting today, you can order the sleek, metallic 5.5 incher on Amazon and NewEgg.

For a full retail price of just $200, the Honor 5X brings a lot to the table: a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920-pixel display, the fairly powerful Snapdragon 615 system chip with 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel main shooter and 16GB of internal storage with microSD card expansion option.

The Honor 5X runs the custom EMUI (that's 'Emotion UI', in case you were wondering) on top of Android, and it has proven to be a smooth-running skin that has a few visual influences borrowed from Apple's iOS (it also lacks an app drawer like many Chinese Android skins).

Having a metal body and fingerprint scanner on such an affordable phone are also two features that will make it stand its ground against the competition.

You can pre-order at the links right below, where you can choose one of three color options: dark grey, daybreak silver and sunset gold. Keep in mind that the Honor 5X is a dual-SIM phone with support AT&T and T-Mobile 4G LTE bands. You can also register your email address at HiHonor.com to get a pair of free headphones.

Snapdragon 615 isn't powerful. In fact, it's even weaker that the old Snapdragon 800 and even Snapdragon 600!

It is better than the Snapdragon 600 but not as good as the 800

Damn. You continue to prove how little you know about tech with your insane comments. Just give up.

EMUI smooth-running? Are you high?

I've owned the Ascend Mate 2 and P8Lite, and I vehemently disagree. When CM came to the Ascend Mate 2, it was insane just how much smoother the phone ran. It was like a whole new phone.

Wow, this sounds like a great budget device, $50 cheaper than the Idol 3 5.5" and equally specced but with a metal body and fingerprint scanner thrown in as well. Sounds like a good gift idea.
