Premium-class metal design

The famous Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, inspired the Honor 5X’s designers to blend design with ergonomic principles in an aluminum alloy body. Fingerprint sensor, power and volume buttons sit exactly where users put their fingers by intuition. With its diamond-polished body topped by a ceramic coating, the Honor 5X is ready for showing off.

Next-generation fingerprint technology

The Honor 5X houses a lightning-fast, frame-free fingerprint sensor. Unlock the phone in only 0.5 seconds. Unlock even with slightly dirty hands as the fingerprint-sensor gets even more accurate over time. Use intuitive gestures to make a call or launch an app during locked mode. Take photos, control the notification bar and cancel an alarm simply with your fingers. You can even link different actions of the Honor 5X with distinct fingers of their hands.

Flexibility brought to a new level with three card slots

With the Honor 5X users connect with their friends and family more easily than ever before, no matter where they are. With three card slots – one nano-SIM, one micro-SIM and one microSD slot – the Honor 5X brings flexibility to a new level. Select the best offer for mobile browsing.
