Honor today announced the Honor 4X smartphone for UK. Huawei introduced the Honor 4X smartphone in China last year. This has the same 5.5-inch HD display, runs on Android 4.4 (Kitkat) with Emotion UI 3.0, has a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB RAM and 8GB internal memory with expansion slot, but the main difference is the processor.
