Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has launched yet another smartphone in its growing lineup called the Honor 7. The smartphone was unveiled in China and comes in three variants, boasting a metal-clad unibody.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Honor 7 flaunts a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and is powered by a Kirin 935 chipset (2.2GHz Cortex-A53 quad-core + 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 quad core) paired with Mali-T628 GPU and 3GB RAM. It offers 16GB and 64GB of storage options.
In the photography department, the Honor 7 sports a 20-megapixel rear sensor with phase detection auto-focus and dual-LED dual-tone flash. The rear camera is protected by sapphire glass to prevent wear and tear, and on the front there is an 8-megapixel front sensor. It packs a 3,100mAh battery and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop (based on Emotion 3.1) out-of-the-box. Connectivity wise, it offers LTE, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support.
The Honor 7 is launched in three variants – the 16GB is priced at CNY 1,999 (Rs 20,500 approximately), the dual-SIM variant is priced at CNY 2,199 (Rs 22,600 approximately) and the 64GB variant which also supports dual-SIM is priced at CNY 2,499 (Rs 25,700 approximately).
Just to compare, the Honor 6 had a 5-inch 1080p display, powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 920 octa-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM. It offered 32GB expandable storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,100mAh battery. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. In India, it was launched September last year for Rs 19,999.
