The Honor 7X brings in the newest trend to its line along with what it already has. Last year, we had the Honor 6X with dual rear cameras, which was a common 2016 feature. This year, the feature we thought would be exclusive to flagships has started to become a staple characteristic of a 2017 phone — a full-screen 18:9 display.
The display of the Honor 7X measures 5.93 inches, has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, and is topped with 2.5D curved glass. In comparison, it’s just as wide as before, but taller.
We still have two rear cameras, but they got an upgrade to 16-megapixel main and 2-megapixel secondary sensors. For selfies, an 8-megapixel camera is available on the front.
A home-baked Kirin 659 processor with Mali-T830 MP2 graphics powers the device. It has 4GB of memory and up to 128GB of storage, with room for a microSD card.
Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 runs on the phone with a sizeable 3340mAh battery, which charges through a micro-USB port. The phone also has a fingerprint reader on the back of its metal body.
The Honor 7X will go on sale in China on October 17 starting from CNY 1,300 (US$ 200) for the 32GB storage version, CNY 1,700 (US$ 260) for 64GB, and CNY 2,000 (US$ 300) for the top 128GB model. Available colors are blue, gold, and black.
