A number of affordable Huawei Honor phones are making their way into the European markets and even stateside.
Following the footsteps of the popular Honor 6X, the 7X made its domestic debut yesterday.
The device is already up for pre-orders and its shipping is to begin in a week, bringing the equivalent of less than $200 (CNY 1,299) in its entry-level 32GB configuration. A 64 gig model costs 1,700 yuan, or around $260, with twice as much internal storage space costing you extra CNY 300. That’s a total of CNY 2,000, equating around $300.
A more than average price to pay for an almost good-looking metal-clad with a 2:1 aspect ratio, FHD+ display resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels), and comparatively thin bezels. Notwithstanding a large 5.93 inches of screen, the Honor 7X should fit rightly in your hand, measuring 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6 mm, and weighing 165 grams.
The dual rear cameras are placed and arranged differently from the 6X’s setup, but what’s more important, the primary sensor skips from 12 to 16 megapixels, with the same average 2MP secondary lens.
The software runs on Android Nougat—it seems like Huawei needs more time to run Android 8.0 on its mid-range smartphone devices.
