Huawei sub-brand Honor is planning to close 2017 with the launch of another edge-to-edge smartphone following the Honor 9i and Honor 7X.
Honor's global website of course highlights an "edge-to-edge all-screen design" as a key selling point, alongside a "classic" metal build, dual-lens camera, long lasting battery, and a fun selfie-taking experience. The new Honor 7X is here as a successor of the Honor 6X smartphone. After Nov. 28 launch in China, the Honor V10 will be also showcased in London on December 5. Huawei likewise says the telephone's corners have been fortified for expanded assurance against drops, which is helpful in the event that you would prefer not to cover it up with a case. It is expected to be powered by a Kirin 970 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The Honor 7X has a 5.9 inch LTPS IPS LCD display with a 2160 x 1080 px display which translates into an 18:9 aspect ratio. You can either use a second SIM card or can use a microSD card to expand the phone's memory upto 256GB.
According to the listing, the Honor V10 features a dual camera setup at the back which is a combination of 16MP + 20 MP sensors. Over at the front, there's a single 13MP camera which is a slight bump over the 8MP unit on the Mate 10 series. Furthermore, the Honor 7X has a battery capacity of 3,340 mAh. The color options even sound premium with choices between Aurora Blue, Midnight Black, and Platinum Gold. The absence of a USB-C port - the Honor 7X gets microUSB instead - feels backward, and there's no waterproofing either. It will come out with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Huawei's own EMUI 8.0 on top.
No pricing information has been revealed just yet.
The phone is expected to be priced at $300 as the predecessor of the Honor 7X i.e. Honor 6X was priced at $250. Stay tuned with us for more useful updates!
