A little more than a month since launching a couple of new phablet offerings, the Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro, Huawei is debuting yet another smartphone, this time around, a new addition to its Honor lineup of midrange of devices. Introducing the Honor 7X, which is sort of the successor to last year’s Honor 6X. Whereas the Honor 6X delivered a twin camera set up at a midrange price, the Honor 7X aims to attract buyers with its generous 5.93 inch Full View display screen.
Before anything else, let us tackle the specifications -- Huawei’s new Honor 7X phablet is fitted with the aforementioned 5.93 inch display, with an aspect ratio of 18 to 9 and a resolution of 1,080 by 2,160 pixels. This is complemented with a dual camera configuration on the rear side consisting of a 16 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel camera. On the front side is an 8 megapixel selfie shooter.
In terms of hardware specs, the Honor 7X packs an eight core HiSilicon Kirin 659 chip set, supported with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and at least 32 gigabytes of built in memory (expandable up to 256 gigabytes by way of a micro SD slot). The device also comes with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, a non-removable 3,340 mAh battery, and Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat mobile operating system.
Aesthetics wise, Huawei’s Honor 7X adopts the now nearly standard bezel-less design popularized by other high profile flagship releases this year, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and of course, Apple’s iPhone X. As a midrange offering, the device can not quite match that of the Galaxys and iPhones of the world, but a nearly edge to edge handset at a fairly affordable price is not a bad deal.
The Honor 7X’s camera specs are also worth a look, with plenty of different modes (slow motion video, HDR, portrait and wide angle). The 8 megapixel camera on the front side is also capable of producing a bokeh effect, and even comes with some cute animal face filters. Still, mobile users who were hoping to see a near field communications (NFC) enabled chip might be disappointed (especially those who like use NFC driven mobile payment systems like Android Pay), while the lack of a water resistance rating might be a bummer for those with hyper active lifestyles.
Huawei has not released any pricing or availability details yet for the Honor 7X, although we might found out on December 5th via an upcoming Honor event.
