Soon after launching the Honor 9i in India, the Huawei sub-brand has now debuted a new mid-range smartphone in its homeland. It’s none other than the Honor 7X, the successor to the last year’s Honor 6X. The new mid-ranger from Honor comes with multiple improvements under the hood. Furthermore, it now comes with a new 18:9 display, that features bare minimal bezels.
Honor seems to have improved on one of the main weak points of its last year’s midrange phablet – the build. The Honor 6X failed miserably in JerryRigEverything’s bend test, and even the display was prone to scratches very easily. The Honor 7X sports a metal unibody construction that comes in three colors namely Gold, Aurora Blue and Black. The rear of the smartphone features two horizontal antenna bands, one of which bifurcated by the dual rear camera.
Up front, the Honor 7X features a 5.93-inch Full HD+ 18:9 IPS LCD display and a 2.5D curved glass display. Powering the phablet is a Hi-Silicon Kirin 659 octa-core processor. This is the same chip powering the recently launched Honor 9i. Apart from that, the smartphone comes with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM. The Honor 7X will be available in three different internal storage variants in China; namely 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB.
Coming to the cameras, the Honor 7X features a dual rear sensor. It consists of 16MP and 2MP sensors that are equipped with LED Flash. Additionally, the smartphone comes with an 8MP front camera. The smartphone also features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
As for the pricing, the Honor 7X is marked at 1,299 Yuan (Rs 12,885/$198 approx.) for the base variant. The ones with 32GB and 128GB storage are priced at 1,699 Yuan (Rs 16,850/$258 approx.) and 1,999 Yuan (Rs 19,825/$304 approx.) respectively.
