At a gala event by Huawei held in London, the Chinese smartphone maker launched the Honor 7X smartphone. The 7X is a budget segment device that brings the dual camera and a portrait mode to the masses. Honor also launched its flagship smartphone called the Honor V10 or the Honor View 10, that packs in plenty of AI capabilities apart from its flagship hardware.
Pricing & Availability
The Honor 7X has been given a price tag of Rs 12,999 for the smaller 32 GB storage model. A higher price of Rs 15,999 has been set for the 64 GB storage model. The device is currently available in China and it will go on sale exclusively on Amazon for the Indian market starting from 7 December.
As far as the Honor V10 is concerned, it will go on sale in India on 8 January. For India, the pricing has not yet been announced, but the device has been given a price tag of 499 Euros (approximately Rs 38,000) in Europe.
The first impressions of the Huawei Honor 7X are out on the internet, and it would appear that it is a decent budget smartphone with primarily the Xiaomi Mi A1 in its crosshairs. While the hardware take is a bit different, from the recently launched Honor 9i, the pricing is the crucial factor here, and it is one that Honor seems to have taken care of, quite well as a matter of fact.
As far as the specifications go, the Honor 7X gets the 5.93-inch full HD+ LCD display sporting a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels.
On the inside, there is a Huawei-made HiSilicon Kirin 659 SoC clocked at 2.36 GHz with an octa-core architecture which appears to be a capable SoC. Honor has also paired 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage variants, all of which comes with expandable memory (up to 256 GB).
On the optical front of the device, the Honor 7X features a 16 MP + 2 MP camera setup at the rear, and an 8 MP front-facing sensor which can take software-based portrait mode as it skips on the second camera that is available on the Honor 9i.
In terms of connectivity, the smartphone features 4G+, 4G, 3G and 2G bands. There is also Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n (2.5/5G Wi-Fi), Wi-Fi Direct, micro USB v2.0, dual SIM slots, GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, and USB OTG support. The phone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat along with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1.
The above configurations of the device are powered by a 3,340 mAh battery. The device also packs a dual SIM support with two SIM slots. In the end, it seems like very decent phone for its immensely rich features, many of which are available only in high-end phones. It’s one we’d recommend – so if you’re planning to upgrade, this would make a good choice.
