Huawei owned Honor today announced the launch of its latest smartphone, the Honor 7X at an event in China. The phone comes with 32/64/128 GB storage and 4GB of RAM. Honor 7X starts at 1,299 yuan (approximately Rs 12,890) for 32GB variant and goes up to 1,999 yuan (approximately Rs 19,799) for 128GB internal storage. It is available in Midnight Black, Aurora Blue and Platinum Gold color variants. Sadly, the worldwide availability of the smartphone has not been disclosed by the company yet. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back. The phone still comes with the Micro USB port which is a drawback. The new Honor 7X comes with a 5.93 inch display. The display also has minimal bezels with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone comes with HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset with Octa-core (4×2.36 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU and Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. All of these variants, according to the listing, support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM configuration.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Honor 7X runs Android 7.0 Nougat-based EMUI 5.1. The smartphone is also IP67 certified that means the Honor 7X is water and dust resistant. The device offers full metal unibody and dual rear-camera solution. The secondary sensor on the smartphone is used for measuring the depth-of-field in the image for offering better Bokeh effect. However, it is also the same device that was launched days earlier in India, labelled Honor 9i (Maimang 6 in China) minus the dual camera at the front. The smartphone is backed by a 3340mAh battery and offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System as connectivity options. 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.
