Honor, Huawei’s sub-brand, is all set to launch its latest semi-premium phone Honor 7x in India today. The device will be launched at an event in London where the company is also planning to mark the global launch of Honor V10. The phone will go on sale In India from Thursday and will be an Amazon exclusive.
The highlights of the smartphone are it’s large 18:9 display and its dual rear camera setup.
Honor 7X with 32GB inbuilt is priced at CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs. 12,890), whereas the 64GB model is priced at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 16,850), with the top-of-the-line model with 128GB storage priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 19,820). We can expect India pricing to be along the same lines, though it remains uncertain which storage variants will be brought to India.
From what we gather, the Chinese phone will run on Huawei’s self-developed OS EMUI 5.1 which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
The phone is the successor of the highly acclaimed Honor 6x and features a 5.93 inch LCD display that is almost bezel-less. The screen has a resolution of 1080*2160 pixels and has an 18:9 ratio with Corning Gorilla glass protection.
The phone runs on Huawei’s home-grown octa-core Kirin 659 processor and features a Mali-T830 MP2 graphics processor. It supports the expandable memory of up to 256GB via microSD. However, the microSD card will make use of SIM 2 slot as the phone lacks a dedicated expansion slot. The phone will come with 4GB RAM in all three configurations.
