Flagship smartphones get all the attention these days, but Huawei is hoping that its new mid-range Honor 5X will change that thanks to its low price and impressive spec list. For $199, the Honor 5X delivers a 1920 x 1080 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD expansion slot, 13-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3000mAh battery.

While some of those specs appear in many of today’s mid-range phones, the Honor 5X has an impressive F2.4 aperture, 22mm wide-angle lens with four elements and its 13-megapixel sensor sports 1.4 micron pixels. The phone is also built with an aluminum shell and sports a fingerprint scanner on the back, which will allow user to unlock the phone or launch specific functions or app by scanning different finders.

The Honor 5X will go on sale later tonight or early tomorrow morning on Amazon and Newegg for $199.99.
