Huawei’s sub-brand Honor just introduced their affordable midranger to the world market. The Honor 7X was first launched in China and is now available for US and European consumers.
The Honor 7X features an all-screen design — or more commonly referred to as near-borderless — with its 5.93-inch Full HD+ display sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio. Like its predecessor, the Honor 7X still has an aluminum back plate with a fingerprint reader and dual cameras.
A 16-megapixel main sensor shoots the photos, while an assistive 2-megapixel sensor is for depth knowledge. This combination allows for shallow depth-of-field or bokeh effects. On the front, there’s an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies.
The phone is powered by a home-baked Kirin 659 processor which is similar to what the Nova 2i has, as well as up to 4GB of memory and 64GB of expandable storage, while a 3340mAh battery is tasked to keep the phone on. Unfortunately, the phone will only come with Android Nougat-based EMUI 5.1 out of the box.
In the US, the device will be available in Aurora Blue and Midnight Black for just US$ 199, but that’s with only 3GB of memory and 32GB of storage. In Europe, the handset will have an additional Platinum Gold color and is more expensive at EUR 299 due to the higher 4GB memory and 64GB storage.
Pre-orders for the Honor 7X start on December 5 and end on December 14.
