Huawei Honor Play 5X to be introduced during October 10th media event?
Huawei has sent out invitations for a media event to be held on October 10th. During the event, we expect to see Huawei formally introduce the Huawei Honor Play 5X. The handset recently was certified by Chinese regulator TENAA, and could be considered a low to mid-range model. While we won't know the pricing of the phone until next Saturday, there is speculation that it will be offered for the equivalent of $158 USD.

The latest rumored specs for the device include a huge 4000mAh battery, which is why the media event is being called "youth playing non-stop," by Huawei. The Honor Play 5X features a 5-inch screen carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. That works out to a 294ppi pixel density. The MediaTek MT6735 is under the hood, containing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU and a Mali-T720 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of expandable storage. A 13MP camera graces the rear of the phone, and a 5MP camera adorns the front of the unit. Android 5.1 is pre-installed. The Huawei Honor Play 5X measures 9.7mm thick and weighs 159 grams. It also supports 4G LTE connectivity.

Another handset that could be unveiled on October 10th is the Huawei P9. A pair of labels for the back camera recently leaked, hinting that the device will feature a dual camera set-up in the back, with laser auto-focus. The labels also reveal that buyers will be able to purchase the device in white or gold. One of the labels is for a version of the phone called"LTE" while the other label says "Delux." The P9 could be stuffed with Huawei's most powerful chipset, the Kirin 950.

We could see some more leaks as we get closer to Saturday's event. Keep checking in!

Thanks for the tip
