In January of this year, Huawei confirmed that its all-metal Android-based GX8 would be making its way to the United States sometime in the first quarter of 2016. Turns out that is indeed the case.

Technically speaking, Huawei’s GX8 was launched last week by way of Amazon’s digital retail presence, but now it’s available through another big box store, Best Buy, through its online portal as well. The GX8 is also available from Huawei’s official site, too, which includes an option for monthly payments of $20.96 for the handset.

As far as features go, it boasts a 5.5-inch 1080p HD display, a 13MP camera on the back and a 5MP camera on the front, an all-metal body, an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, a battery measured in at 3000mAh, and 16GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot. It’s running Android 5.1 out of the box.

The GX8 is available unlocked from right now for $349.99 in three colors: Space Grey, Mystic Champagne, and Horizon Gold.
