    Looks like the successor to the honor 6x will be unveiled October 11th. Rumors include a Kirin 670 chipset, 4gb ram, 64 GB of internal storage along with a bezel-less display. If this comes to the states at a reasonable price I might have to make a jump from my honor 8.

    Yeah, I love my Honor 8 but lately these mid-range devices with their power efficiency are really temping me. I've come to the realization that battery life is my top priority. If this thing can get 2 days out of a charge I'm sold!

    i don't really see it as being 2 days battery, at least for moderate to heavy usage. the only phone that i know of that can do this would be the moto z play.

    Well, here's hoping for a 1+ day battery life.

    It's not really designed to cull people from a 6x,probably people who are using other phones.

    More rumors. Looking like a 18:9 screen is all but confirmed.

    Yeah, if it does come to the states, I think it'll do well as itll be one of the first budget phones with a bezel-less design.

    Don't know yet, hopefully tomorrow will shed some light if it comes over here. It would probably do pretty well if it did as it'll be the first 18:9 Budget phone stateside.

    Looks pretty good! MicroUSB though?! And no word yet on US debut. Still if it's anything like the 6x debut, it'll be released several months after the Chinese version.

    True, and yeah price is excellent. I wonder if they can keep the price in the same ballpark if and when it comes to the US.

    I'm sure the importers like Gearbest and Aliexpress will have it for those who JUST can't wait.

    Ha true. Anybody have any experience importing phones? Not that I'm planning to, I just see deals come up all the time and am curious about the process of buying on these sites.

    I'm glad you asked! Yes I have done it, I got a Mi Mix from Gearbest without issue, also I traded for an International Mate 9 a couple months before the US release. In both cases I knew ahead of time that the devices had LTE in the US. In the case of the Mate 9 all LTE bands from T-Mobile (except the newest that no one has), and in the case of the Mi Mix while it did not have band 12, it did have 2 other T-Mobile LTE bands and I almost always got a good LTE signal.

    You need to check what radios/frequencies the device has BEFORE you import it, and you must accept what it has. Additionally there will be no US warranty, and returning the device will be difficult if not impossible.

    Gotcha thanks for the info. This is really helpful. Do these phones usually come in other languages? And if so how easy is it to switch it to English?

    The question is does it support usa lte and features like volte, wfc, etc. I am sure they are all quad band gsm so technically it would work but internet could be really slow.

    True true. You need to check specifically. SOME phones support some or all of the US LTE bands, but often there are no US LTE bands. As for VoLTE and WiFi calling, often/sometimes T-Mobile supports it on those phones, BUT AT&T almost NEVER does. At least this has been my experience. The key is to check BEFORE you buy and then be satisfied with what you are getting. When I bought my Mi Mix, I did just that. I knew it was missing band 12, but I was ok with that since it had the other LTE bands and WiFi calling DID work.
