A newly unearthed GFXBench result offers a glimpse
of one such handset. Codenamed Huawei ABC-UL00, it is believed to be a new
addition to the Honor line, presumably the Honor 5X Plus.
revealed specs paint a decidedly mid-range picture. The phone is equipped with
a 5.2 inch FullHD display and utilizes the OEM's custom Kirin 935 chip. We have
already seen it powering the Honor 7 and Mate S and it is one of the better
HiSilicon offers, although somewhat lacking in the GPU department. Memory is
set at 3GB and the reported storage looks to be from a 64GB model, though other
varieties might also be available.
The camera setup features a 13MP
shooter on the back and a 8MP selfie one. Other than that, GFXBench assures us
that the Honor 5X Plus has all the standard connectivity options one would
expect, life Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, also GPS and NFC.
the looks of things, the Honor 5X Plus might be Huawei's answer to the recently
announced Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
However, with a fingerprint reader and a tantalizing price tag starting at RMB
899 ($140), it might prove a hard opponent to top.
