Huawei is growing fast as a technology company with its smartphone becoming popular over the last few years. The fact that Google chose it to make the Nexus 6P could be taken as a manifestation of its growing popularity. Now, it has emerged that the company has sold millions of units of the Honor 5X in less than a year.

Zhao Ming, the head of the company's Honor brand, has claimed that more than 8 million units of the Honor 5X have been sold since its launch last year, according to Tech163 (via GSMArena). He went on to say that sales of the device should cross the 10 million-mark soon. 

The Huawei Honor 5X was launched in China in October last year before spreading to other markets, including the United States, India and Europe earlier this year. It came with a price tag of 899 Yuan (Rs. 12,999).

The Huawei Honor 5X has a full metal body with fingerprint reader, measures 151.3x76.3x8.2 mm in dimension, weighs 158 g, and comes in three colours -- silver, gold and gray. It sports a 5.5-inch Full-HD display with 1080 x 1920 pixels (401 ppi pixel density), powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocking at 1.5 GHz, houses an Adreno 405 GPU, and runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on top of EMUI 3.1 (yet to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow).
