The Huawei Honor 5X has been released last year in November, and now, the popular Chinese manufacturer is preparing to unveil its successor. The specs of the Honor 6X 2016 haven’t been confirmed yet, so this comparison is based only on rumors.
The Huawei Honor 5X measures 151.3×76.3×8.2mm and weights 158 grams.
