According to The Wall Street Journal, Huawei will showcase its recently announced Mate 8 and Honor 5X handsets at CES 2016 (January 6 - January 9), planning to launch them stateside not long after that. Moreover, the company also intends to present a new smartwatch at CES 2016 (presumably one that runs Android Wear, just like the current Huawei Watch).
Both the Mate 8 and Honor 5X are already available in China, Huawei's home country, for prices starting at about $500 and $150, respectively. Most likely, US prices will be higher.
The Huawei Mate 8 is a metal-made smartphone that runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow (customized with Huawei's Emotion UI) and sports a 6-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. Powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor, the Mate 8 features LTE connectivity, a fingerprint scanner, 8 MP front-facing camera, 16 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, microSD card support, and a 4000 mAh battery. The handset has two versions: one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, and one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB / 128 GB of internal memory.
As for the Huawei Honor 5X, this is also made out of metal, though it's smaller than the Mate 8, as it's offering a 5.5-inch 1080p display. Other features include LTE, an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB / 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space, and a 3000 mAh battery.
Do you think you'll consider buying any of these two Huawei smartphones?

Kirin chipsets are banned in US . So, I think Mate 8 will come with snapdragon in US .

If the kirin is banned in the US and replaced by a snapdragon, then which SD is comparable to the k950?
