As CES 2017 gets up and running in Las Vegas, smartphone company Honor unveils the Honor 6X.

Described by the company as a smartphone designed for "cost-conscious yet uncompromising Internet-minded" millennials, the Honor 6X features 5.5-inch full HD display, a full metal slim body with 2.5D glass on the front, and curved panel on the back.  It's powered by a Kirin 655 processor, which packs four cores that clock in at 2.1GHz and another four at 1.7 GHz.  The CPU is supported by 3GB/4GB RAM (model dependant) and a i5 co-processer.  As far as battery performance, Honor says the 6X provides more than 2 days worth of usage and roughly a day and a half of "heavy usage" on a full charge.

“Geared towards those unwilling to cut back on performance, Honor 6X is a device engineered with uncompromising excellence,” said George Zhao, president of honor.  “Understanding the ‘double or nothing’ lifestyle of millennials, we designed Honor 6X with enough muscle power to allow them to share, explore, and enjoy life to the fullest.”

Honor is pricing the 6X Android-based smartphone at $250 in the United States.  The phone goes on pre-sale on Jan. 4 and is expected to hit the market on the 15th.
