Earlier this week, we talked about specifications and images of the Honor 7X that had surfaced online as the device had received TENAA certification in China. At that time, we told you that Honor would launch the 7X in China soon. Well, just three days later, this Huawei subsidiary has unveiled the 7X at an event in China.
The Honor 7X is successor to the Honor 6X that was launched last year in October. The Honor 7X boasts uni-body metal construction and flaunts a 5.93-inch display that has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Well, this makes the bezels on the device smaller, making it possible to cram in a larger device while keeping the overall footprint of the device relatively smaller.
Below, the display, you will only see the Honor moniker, and, above it is the earpiece and the 8 MP selfie camera. At the back, you have a dual camera setup which is a combination of a 16 MP and 2 MP camera. However, unlike the camera setup on the Honor 6X which is placed at the center with vertical orientation, the camera setup on the 7X is placed at the top-left corner with horizontal orientation. You can also see the fingerprint scanner and antenna lines.
Talking about the innards, the Honor 7X is powered by Kirin 659 SoC that’s laced with 4 GB RAM and backed by Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. It runs EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.0 Nougat, and, keeping the lights on is a 3340 mAh battery.
