Accessories readied for the Honor 5X’s U.S. release


On Tuesday, Huawei held a separate press event at CES 2016 for its Honor brand. The Honor 5x is the first sign of the company being serious about the United States and promoting a device in the country. As we all know, accessories are a big piece of buying a phone. Consumers want a phone that they can get various cases and covers for to protect their new purchase and add some personal style. Luckily for buyers of the Honor 5X, Huawei is readied with at least three accessories for its release on January 31.

Flip Cover


The primary accessory for the Honor 5x is a flip cover that resembles the one Samsung sold for the Galaxy S5 in 2014. This flip cover, which is made of a soft and elastic leather, wraps around the entire phone with cutouts on the front for the display and the back for the camera and fingerprint scanner. When the phone’s display turns on, the window on the front shows the time, weather, and notifications. Open the flip cover and the Honor 5X’s display turns on in a full view.

Honor Engine Earphone


  • Full magnesium alloy body
  • Dual layer dual color 3D cable
  • Composite diaphram

Color options for the Honor Engine Earphone include Peppermint Green, Rococo Pink, Champagne Gold, Rose Red, and Starry Sky Gray.

Honor Hybrid Earphones


  • Distinct, quality sound
  • Mid/bass boost
  • Clear, sharp treble

The Honor Hybrid Earphones will sold in classier Black, Gold, and Rose Gold colors.

Pricing for each of these accessories has not been set. We’ll know more as we approach the end of the month, exactly when the Honor 5X is on the market.
