Huawei has no plans to officially launch the Honor 5X in Canada

South of the border, one of the most talked about devices since its CES 2016 reveal is Huawei’s Honor 5X.

This affordable mid-tier Android device costs just $200 USD and brings a significant amount of value. Packing a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, an octa-core Snapdragon 616 with 2GB of RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera with a 5 megapixel front-facing camera, fingerprint sensor, 16GB internal storage with expansion up to 128GB, the LTE-enabled Honor 5X is a solid mid-range device.

But with that said, the Honor 5X unfortunately is not officially coming to Canada. In a statement to MobileSyrup, Huawei Canada noted, “there are no plans currently to introduce the Honor 5X to the Canadian market, but we should have some device/product news in the months ahead.”

Those interested in the Honor 5X can purchase it through NewEgg Canada where it’s currently available for $279.99 CAD plus $8.99 shipping.

While we wait for Huawei’s upcoming Canadian product announcements, the best Huawei-made smartphone on the market – and arguably the top Android smartphone available – is the Nexus 6P.
