Huawei’s sub-brand Honor rolled out the new Honor 7x and like the Honor Nova 2i, the latest Honor device is also equipped with an 18:9 Aspect ratio display. This like of devices will have a different branding in different parts of the world, one example of which is the GR5 lineup in the Philippines where we are also awaiting for the next GR5 handset to make its debut soon after.
As we’ve expected, the Honor 7x seems to look a somewhat similar to the Nova 2i, though not the entire handset but the front spells a familiar look that’s because it features a 5.93-inch Full-HD+ display sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels which is responsible for its taller profile.
Under the hood is a Kirin 659, a Huawei homebrewed chipset with octa-core CPU together with a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU unit. It comes with 4GB of RAM and storage spaces that ranges from 32GB up to 128GB with a microSD card support through a hybrid dual-SIM slot.
The Honor 7x is all about the trend and Huawei just dropped in a dual imaging sensor on the back with a pair of 16 Megapixel main shooter plus a 2 Megapixel depth sensor and of course with an LED flash. On the front is an 8 Megapixel sensor which takes care of everything Selfie and provides the best imaging quality for video calls.
Keeping it running is a 3340 mAh embedded battery and is driven by EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.0 (Nougat). It supports 4G/LTE and legacy network connectivity and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and a microUSB port.
The new Huawei Honor 7x will be available in China starting on October 17. Users can choose either a 32GB, 64GB or a 128GB storage variant with a price of 1,300CNY, 1,700CNY and 2,000CNY respectively.
