Chinese device manufacturer Huawei has launched a new Android-powered handset - called 'Honor 5X' - in the US. The handset has become available for purchase in the US market with effect from Sunday, January 31.

The new Huawei Honor 5X is a budget-premium handset, priced at $200 'unlocked' in the US. The handset is Huawei's first metallic phone; and the company is also referring to it as a 'No Nonsense' device. The handset is being sold by Huawei in partnership with Amazon as well as Newegg, and is also available at the Honor store.

Some of the most notable features of the Huawei Honor 5X handset include a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with 1080 x 1920 screen resolution; 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor; 2GB of RAM; a massive 3000mAh battery; and 16GB onboard storage capacity, with microSD card to increase storage to 128GB.

The Honor 5X handset is a dual-SIM handset which comes with two cameras --- a 13-megapixel back camera with LED flash included; and a 5-megapixel wide-angle front camera for clicking selfies. The device runs Android OS version 5.1 'Lollipop'; and will likely be upgraded to Android 6.0 'Marshmallow' in the near future.

Touting the new Honor 5X handset in a press release, Huawei said the "sleek and shapely" handset has been "inspired by the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain;" and added: "It also earned seven International CES 2016 awards, and has been the subject of widespread praise in the media."
