Design-wise, Honor 5X has a full-metal body with a ceramic coating, which makes it look better than a mid-range device. You can get it in silver, grey and gold and you will find it feeling pretty premium in hand. The back shows a fingerprint sensor that you can find on all of Huawei’s newest phones.

 

If you want one of these phones already, you can pre-oder on Amazon or you can wait until January 31st to get it from HiHonor.com. It will be available on Newegg after launch as well.
