Huawei Honor 5X gets minor software update
Huawei Honor 5X still has to reach the US market and, since that is scheduled for January 30, those who will purchase it will receive the handset loaded with this month's security updates already applied. An early owner of this handset posted a few screenshots in the Android Central forums that reveal his Honor 5X got its first software update already.
The new firmware weighs 111 MB, its build number is KIW-L24C567B131, being based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with EMUI 3.1 on top. While the "Android security patch level" field clearly says "January 1, 2016," it is also worth mentioning that the kernel information mentions "January 19" as its build date. Unfortunately, there is no official change log available yet.
The highlights of this 5.5-inch handset bound for the US market include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC, 2 GB or 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and microSD support, dual-SIM and 4G LTE, a 13 MP camera with dual LED flash, as well as a 3000 mAh power pack and Quick Charge 3.0 support. It will hit the US for $199.99 USD.
