Huawei’s Honor lineup of smartphones reportedly coming to the US

Huawei is reportedly bringing its popular Honor lineup of smartphones to the US market.

An official announcement is expected to be made in January at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 in Las Vegas.

Huawei CEO George Zhao recently told journalists in Shenzhen, China, that the company’s Honor brand will debut in the U.S. The Chinese tech giant already brought its Honor brand into the European market earlier this year.

The US Federal Communications Commission certified the Huawei Honor Play 5X smartphone in November, suggesting that this particular model may be one of the first to roll out.

The Honor Play 5X features a 5.50-inch 1080×1920 display powered by 1.2GHz processor alongside 2GB RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera.


The Honor Play 5x (picture above) could soon become available for US consumers to purchase.

The company already has a presence in the US market, namely due to the Nexus 6P – an Android smartphone manufactured by Huawei and co-developed by Google.

But Huawei hasn’t become a household name in the US yet. That could soon change if the reports are right and the company goes through with expanding its product line in the US.
