by October 12, 2017


Huawei has launched the Honor 7X in China. The successor to the Honor 6X, comes with a thin-bezel design. The phone has a metal unibody construction with the fingerprint sensor placed at the back. A major chunk of its design and hardware are borrowed from the recently launched Honor 9i.

It sports a 5.9-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by Huawei’s home-grown Kirin 659 SoC (System on Chip). The phone has 4 GB of RAM and comes in 32 GB / 64 GB / 128 GB variants. If that doesn’t suffice, you get a microSD card slot that supports up to 256 GB.

The Honor 7X features horizontally stacked dual cameras at the rear. It comes in 16 MP + 2 MP configuration wherein the secondary sensor to captures depth information for bokeh effect. The camera assembly doesn’t sit flush with the body of the phone though. The Honor 7X skips the dual selfie cameras probably due to its budget constraints. You do get an 8-megapixel shooter though.

The Honor 7X runs Android Nougat 7.0 with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 customisation. The phone features a non-removable 3340 mAh battery. Priced at CNY 1299 (Rs 13,000) for 32 GB, CNY 1699 (Rs 17000) for 64 GB, and CNY 1999 (Rs 20,000) for 128 GB versions, it comes in Gold, Aurora Blue, and Black.
