The Huawei Honor 6X has been a great success ever since its official launch a year ago thanks to the great build it offers alongside solid hardware specs and above all, an affordable price tag.
Now, with a year gone since it was launched, the Chinese OEM has unveiled its successor, the Huawei Honor 7X. The new phone not only comes with a new name, but it also comes with just about everything new when compared to its predecessor. There’s a new design and display, a new processor, a new camera, a new OS and a new price tag as well.
Right from the start, you will notice that the Huawei Honor 7X has already dived into the new near bezel-less designs we’ve seen on a number of high-end phones as well as the budget LG Q6, which is an understudy to the LG G6. The company has its official name for this display – the FullView display. It becomes the second in the Honor brand to feature this kind of display following its debut on the Honor 9i, but the two have more differences under the hood.
The new Huawei Honor 7X rocks a 5.93-inch 2.5D curved display screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution. This whole setup is housed in a full metallic unibody that is IP67-certified just like the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, which means it can survive a dive of up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.
Like many other Huawei phones, the Honor 7X has a Kirin 659 SoC running the show alongside a decent RAM of 4GB. In terms of storage, the phone will be available in three options of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, all with room to expand via a microSD card of up to 256GB. As for the cameras, the phone has a dual 16MP+20MP camera on the back and an 8MP selfie shooter. You will also be able to enjoy portrait mode and separate beauty features that suit male and female users.
Keeping the Huawei Honor 7X alive is a 3340mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology and for the software, the handset has Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. The phone will be sold in Platinum Gold, Midnight Black and Aurora Blue.
Perhaps the most intriguing part about the Huawei Honor 7X is the price tag. Apparently, the base model of 32GB is priced at 1299 Yuan, which is about $200, while the 64GB model is priced at 1699 Yuan, an equivalent of about $260. As for the high-end variant, which rocks an impressive 128GB of internal storage, you only need 1999 Yuan or about $300.
Availability has already been confirmed for the Chinese market, with shipping set to kick off on October 17. As for Europe, the U.S. and other markets that also received the Honor 6X, the Huawei Honor 7X should be on its way sooner or later.
