The Honor 7X is a mid-range phone, in case you were wondering. This is the company’s all-new mid-range smartphone, which adopts considerably thinner bezels than its predecessor, and also a larger display, which Honor opted for as they managed to trim down those bezels, and not make the phone significantly larger.
The Honor 7X features a 5.93-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display, while it packs in 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB / 128GB of expandable storage (expandable up to 256GB). The Honor 7X is fueled by the Kirin 659 64-bit octa-core SoC, Huawei’s mid-range processor.
Now, as far as cameras are concerned, the Honor 7X comes with 16 and 2-megapixel main shooters on the back, both of which protrude a bit on the back, and next to them you’ll notice an LED flash. As far as the phone’s front-facing shooter goes, you’re getting an 8-megapixel sensor, which comes with a number of software features attached to its performance, like the Portrait Mode, for example. The Honor 7X packs in a 3,340mAh non-removable battery on the inside, and you can utilize fast charging on this phone.
Android 7.0 Nougat comes out of the box here, and on top of it, you’re getting Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.1 skin. The device comes with two SIM card slots, we’re looking at a hybrid dual SIM setup, which means that you can use the second SIM card slots in order to insert a microSD card, and expand the phone’s internal storage.
In the US, the Honor 7X is now available to pre-order for $200 for mid-December delivery, which makes the £269 UK and €300 European prices (shipping immediately in some territories) seem downright unfair, even if they’re more or less what you’d typically pay for a mid-range handset.
Its 32GB and 64GB storage variants are priced at Rs. 12,999 ($202) and Rs. 15,999 ($248) in India, respectively. The phone will become available starting on December 7 at 12PM (local time), via Amazon India and Honor India Store, exclusively.
