Chinese technology conglomerate Huawei unveiled its new flagship smartphone at a media event today. Called the Honor 7, the phone has three variants carrying slightly varying hardware specs especially different connectivity options and storage capacities.
All the variations of the Honor 7 have an aluminum alloy exterior, and 5.2-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) display clad in metal alloy chassis. They all are powered by company’s homegrown 64-bit capable Kirin 935 processor with half of the cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and rest Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5GHz. They all possess 3GB of RAM too, with 16 to 64GB internal storage with support for external storage by microSD card.
The flagship among the three sports 64GB internal storage and the dual SIM dual-standby LTE abilities. The echelon just below it has the dual-standby LTE capabilities as well, but only 16GB of internal storage, and the lowest tier variant has a basic 16GB variant with LTE radio.
Other features of the phone aren’t slouch either. All the three variants sport a 20-megapixel sensor rear camera with Phase Detection Auto-Focus feature. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel sensor with the wide-angle lens.
The Honor 7 is powered by a 3,100mAh battery, which as the company claims can be fully charged in less than 90 minutes. On the software front, the phone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with company’s custom skin EMUI v 3.1.
Which leaves us to the pricing deets. The basic 16GB variant is priced at $322 while the phone in the mid echelon is selling at $355, and the top of the line costing about $400.
