We’re expecting Huawei to unveil the newest member(s) of its Honor series on May 10th. Today, we were able to obtain some details regarding the upcoming handset(s) thanks to its TENNA certification.
Besides launching handsets such as the P9 and P9 Plus that are aimed squarely at the premium segment, Huawei (pronounced “Wah-Way“) also has a sub-brand called Honor offering smartphones at reasonable prices without too many compromises. The Honor 5X is its latest budget-friendly smartphone, featuring a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a first-rate fingerprint scanner, and a premium, metallic finish for $199 in the U.S. and £189/€229 in Europe.

The Honor 5C will officially launch on April 28th, and now it seems that there’s another new handset on the horizon, the Honor V8, with a May 10th launch date. Read more
