Honor 5X will "soon" be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Honor 5X will
Released in the US in late January, the honor 5X is an affordable smartphone that offers plenty of attractive features, including a metal-made body, fingerprint scanner, and a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The handset is sold for $199 unlocked, thus being an option to consider for anyone on a limited budget.

One of the downsides of the honor 5X is that, at the moment, it's running Android 5.1 Lollipop. Fortunately, Honor (a Huawei brand) will update the device to Android 6.0 Marshmallow - just as previously promised. According to the official Honor USA Twitter account, the update will be available "soon." Right now, there's no exact release date for the update, but we assume/hope that honor 5X users will be able to get a taste of Marshmallow starting the coming weeks.

The honor 5X can be purchased only online from Hihonor.com, Newegg, and Amazon, and you can get it in three color versions: grey, gold, or silver. Interested?

In all honesty for someone who isn't all about the power like the average consumer this is a great phone for the price.

The SD 615 is plenty powerful. Knocks the 805 hex's dick in the dirt on my G4.

I thought when it first came out the first batch was the 615 then they made the switch to 616 right? Its only a slight modification anyway.

The only difference is that the slower cores are clocked at 1.2 ghz instead of 1.0 ghz. I got one and itsa great phone for its price

The Honor 5X is a freaking buzzsaw with the 615 and the audio is incredible. The *best* bargain, dollar-for-dollar, over anything else. Love this phone almost as much as my N6P, which is saying a lot.

I actually didn't mind the EMUI excpet for the no-app drawer. That drove me nuts so I went to G Launcger.
