The Honor 7X mid-range smartphone has been made official at an event held in China. This is the latest offering from Huawei’s sub-brand Honor and is a successor to last year’s Honor 6X. While it continues with the dual camera setup introduced last year, it has brought a significant change in the form of the 18:9 bezel-less display this time around.
The Honor 7X sports a 5.93-inch bezel-less display with Full HD+ (2160 X 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. It is the latest smartphone to join the club of phones like Samsung Galaxy S8, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, LG Q6, and Google Pixel 2 XL. Other than the display, it has a full metal unibody design to give the premium feel to users.
Under the hood, it has the HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. The phone has been released in three storage variants of 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB with each of them offering microSD card support. The amount of RAM remains the same on all the three variants. It has a 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel dual camera setup on the back for bokeh shots along with an 8-megapixel camera on the front. The rear cameras also have a dual-LED flash to help you with low-light photography.
The whole package is powered by a 3340mAh battery with fast charging support. It runs Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 skin based on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with no official words on an upgrade to Oreo. It further has a fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm headphone jack, and microUSB charging port.
The Honor 7X starts at 1299 Yuan (about $128/Rs. 12,855) for the 32GB model and costs 1699 (about $258/Rs. 16,814) and 1999 Yuan (about $304/Rs. 19,783) for the 64GB and 128GB models respectively. It has been made official in Midnight Black, Platinum Gold, and Aurora Blue color options. The smartphone is already up for preorders in China and we can expect it to arrive in India sometime soon in the future.
