After introducing the Honor 7C only a few weeks ago, Huawei’s other phone brand, Honor has today announced yet another budget smartphone — Honor 7A. It features a familiar design and all the trendy bells and whistles including a tall display, Face Unlock, and more. It’s priced at 799 Yuan ($126/Rs 8,250) for the 2GB RAM variant and 999 yuan ($158/Rs 10,315) for an extra 1GB RAM.
The Honor 7A comes with a tall 5.7-inch 720p screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Under the hood, there’s an octa-core Snapdragon 430 processor, 2 or 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage which can be expanded through a MicroSD card, and a 3000mAh battery. Honor has preloaded Android Oreo with its own EMUI 8.0 skin on top. The Honor 7A is also compatible with two SIM cards and 4G VoLTE.
The camera arrangement includes a rear 13-megapixel f/2.2 sensor along with a secondary 2-megapixel lens. On the front, you’ll find an 8-megapixel selfie f/2.0 lens which also has a soft LED flash. In addition to the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, the Honor 7A can also be unlocked with a face. It’s available in three color options — Black, Gold, and Blue. The Honor 7A is now available for order in China and will go on sale starting from this month’s 3rd.
