Honor 7X comes with 5.93-inch Full HD+ 18:9 2.5D curved glass display. However, it is also the same device that was launched days earlier in India, labelled Honor 9i (Maimang 6 in China) minus the dual camera at the front.
The dual rear-facing cameras are positioned and arranged differently from the 6X's main shooter setup, but more importantly, the primary sensor jumps from 12 to 16 megapixels, paired with the same modest 2MP secondary lens. The Honor 7X is powered by the Kirin 659 octa-core processor clocked at 2.36GHz and comes coupled with Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. There is 4GB of RAM and buyers will be able to choose from 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB of storage. The fingerprint scanner is placed at the back just below the dual camera setup.
In terms of design, the Honor 7X sports a sleek metal unibody design with a metal frame all around giving it an overall premium look. With the in-house Histen sound algorithm, the device also offers 3D surround sound. It has a 3,340mAh which is enough to keep it running for a day and we are not sure if it supports flash charging or not. The smartphone will be made available from October 17 and comes in Aurora Blue, Midnight Black and Platinum Gold colours.
The device is also IP67 certified, making it water and dust resistant. The smartphone also support Huawei's SuperCharge fast charging technology using the 9V/2A (18W) power adapter. Will you buy this over the Honor 9i? The Honor 7X is successor to the company's much-popular Honor 6X phone and will be available in as many three storage variants: 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, with all the variants supporting expandable storage of up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. The pre-order, however, starts today.
The Honor 7X runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with EMUI 5.1 on top. The Honor 7X will soon go on sale in the U.S, India, and Europe.
