honor has finally announced the price of the honor 5x and honor 7 Enhanced Edition in Malaysia. The phones were launched two weeks ago, and will go on sale to the public on 16 February for the honor 7 Enhanced Edition and 23 February for the honor 5X. honor will also be holding a trial programme for the honor 5X, where users will be able to spend a whole month with the smartphone before deciding if they want to buy it.
The honor 5X will be sold in three colour variants: grey, silver, and gold. The grey and silver versions will retail at RM899; while the more premium gold finish will retail for RM939. It should be noted that the specifications for all three colours are the same, and the only difference is that some will be paying RM40 more to get theirs in gold.
On the other hand, the honor 7 Enhanced Edition is an actual upgrade over the honor 7; and features 32GB of internal storage, fast charging, and EMUI 4.0 (based on Android 6.0). These additional features mean that the phone retails for a little more than the honor 7 at RM1499. As an added bonus, the Enhanced Edition also throws in a six month cracked screen warranty.
honor is also holding a pre-order event for the honor 5X on 16 February from noon until midnight. Customers who purchase their devices during this event may see their phones before they officially go on sale as shipping will take place on 19 February – four days before they officially appear in stores.
Details are light on the honor 5X trial programme at the moment. We have been informed that interested customers can sign up for the trial on Vmall.my; although it seems that the registration is not yet open. Only the first 50 to sign up will be able to participate in the programme, which apparently ends on 15 March. We infer that registration should begin at the same time as the pre-order event, which would allow for the month long trial as promised.
Official sales of the honor 5X and honor 7 Enhanced Edition will take place on Vmall.my, Lazada, and at DirectD. Check out our honor 5X hands on for a closer look at the smartphone.
