Huawei is actually just a couple of weeks away from its own launch event during the upcoming IFA conference to be held in Berlin, Germany, but it appears that the Chinese phone maker just can not wait another day to introduce a new smartphone offering. Just recently, the third biggest seller of mobile phones in the world unveiled the Honor 7i, which like the Oppo N series, features a camera that can flip around in order to capture quality images (and yup, selfies, too).
The camera will undoubtedly be the highlight of Huawei’s latest mobile device. The Huawei Honor 7i’s camera comes with a 13 megapixel resolution, as well as an f/2.0 aperture, a 28 millimeter wide angle lens, and a dual tone LED flash. Based on those specifications alone, the handset’s camera does really try to deliver on the goods.
Plus, the Huawei Honor 7i handset can use its display screen to add further brightness, especially for those inclined to take selfies in conditions with minimum lighting. The fingerprint reader that is situated on the left side of the device’s midframe can actually serve as a camera button, which should come in handy especially for those taking selfies using their left hand.
The Oppo N1 handset also has a similar primary camera that flips and rotates. But several critics have reported that the rotating camera was a bit clunky when moved.
With regards to other specifications, the Huawei Honor 7i is equipped with a 5.2 inch IPS display screen with 1,080 pixel resolution. Its processor boasts a Snapdragon 616 octa core chip set, featuring four sets of 1.5 GigaHertz chips and four sets of 1.2 GigaHertz chips. This is further supported with 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and 32 gigabytes of internal memory. The device also comes with twin Nano SIM slots, one of which can serve as a slot for micro SD cards. The Honor 7i possesses a 3,100 mAh battery, and comes in color options of gold and silver.
Huawei has not published any details yet regarding pricing and availability for the Honor 7i device. The base model available in the Chinese market though (the one that features 16 gigabytes of internal memory) goes for around $250, while the top model (with 32 gigabytes of internal memory) can fetch about $300.
