At this year’s annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) being held in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada, Huawei took the opportunity to announce US pricing and release details for the Honor 7X, its newest midrange phablet offering, as well as confirm that the Honor View 10 (also known as the Honor V10) will also be launching in America within this year.
It was in November of last year when Huawei first confirmed the existence of the Honor 7X. Basically, the device is the successor to 2016’s Honor 6X. Despite coming with a midrange price, the Honor 6X had attracted some attention with its dual camera set up. As for the Honor 7X, its 5.93 inch Full View display screen may be its most sellable attribute (on top of also having a twin camera configuration).
Huawei has announced that the Honor 7X will be sold in the United States at a price of $199. This pricing is certainly far from being a bad deal, especially when one considers that the buyer gets to have a pair of cameras on the rear side and a pretty good 5.93 inch display screen. And while it is true that the smartphone does not have water resistance capabilities, it does come with plenty of interesting specs (fingerprint scanner, 64 gigabytes of built in memory, and support for micro SD cards, which can expand storage up to 256 gigabytes).
Now for the Honor View 10 -- the device may remind people of the Mate 10 Pro, Huawei’s 2017 flagship phablet. The main differences are that the Honor View 10 only has a 16 megapixel main camera compared to the Mate 10 Pro’s 20 megapixel shooter, a 3,750 mAh battery vs the Mate 10 Pro’s 4,000 mAh battery, and an LCD (liquid crystal display) screen compared to the Mate 10 Pro’s organic light emitting diode (OLED) display screen. The device is already launching in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and India, and as confirmed by Huawei, it will also hit American shores later this year.
In related news, it appears that AT&T is not pushing through with its plans to sell Huawei devices this year. According to the Wall Street Journal, the major US wireless carrier was supposed to confirm its partnership with the Chinese mobile giant at the CES 2018 event, but apparently, that is not happening. Less than a couple of weeks ago, it was reported that AT&T was going to debut Huawei’s Mate 10 some time next month, but those plans have reportedly been discontinued.
