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.
