In October of last year, Honor unveiled the 6X, the follow-up to its popular Honor 5X. The device, which was initially only available in China, is now coming to the US and a few European markets. The company has announced the news today at CES 2017 in Las Vegas.
In the US, pre-orders for the device start tomorrow, January 4, while sales will kick off on January 10. The device will officially go on sale through HiHonor, Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg for just $249.99, while customers will also be able to take advantage of a number of flash sales to save some money.

In Europe, the device will go on sale tomorrow, January 4, in quite a few countries including the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. The device can be purchased from Vmall.eu and Amazon for just €249.
The Honor 6X sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion. Honor plans on releasing a version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage sometime in Q1 2017, with a price tag of $299.99/€299.
Perhaps its biggest selling point is the rear-facing dual-camera setup with 12 and 2MP sensors. In addition, it sports a metal construction, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 3,440mAh battery. While it only runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, an update to Android 7.0 Nougat is expected soon.
