Honor 7X launched: Better design, upgraded processor, cameras and more

Honor Malaysia Teaser Oct 2017

The company has its official name for this display - the FullView display. The biggest change over last year's device, the Honor 6X, has a new aspect ratio and screen dimensions. In 2017, it's more about the screen.

Huawei's sub-brand Honor has finally announced its latest mid-range smartphone, the Honor 7X, in China. The bezels aren't as trimmed as current flagships out there, but they still look significantly lesser than on an ordinary handset. The Honor 7X will be available in three different internal storage variants in China; namely 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. There is also a MicroSD card slot for further expanding the storage up to 256GB.

The rear camera of the Honor 7X will be made up of a 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel dual-rear sensor, with a front camera that can take 8-megapixel pictures. A 3340 mAh non-removable battery is inside the phone with fast charging technology which claims to offer up to 21 hours of talk time. The device has been listed for RMB 1,299 (~Rs 13,000), RMB 1,699 (~Rs 17,000) and RMB 1,999 (~Rs 20,000) for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, respectively. In terms of software, Honor 7X runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1.

Elsewhere, the phone boasts of a full-metal body and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, much like it was in the case of the Honor 6X.

Its connectivity options include 4G, LTE, 3G, GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi, GPS/AGPS, NFC, GLONASS, Wi-Fi Direct, WLAN, Bluetooth, USB OTG, and USB Type-C. The smartphone comes in three color options: Midnight Black, Platinum Gold, and Aurora Blue.

With the launch of the Honor 7X, Huawei has officially forayed into the bezel-less smartphone market that is now becoming quite popular with other global manufacturers.
