Honor 7X to be launched in China on October 11


Huawei’s subsidiary Honor will be debuting its Honor 7X in China on October 11. The brand’s official Weibo goes with the tagline “Want to see farther than ordinary people? higher? Wider your head and the world”, meaning we should see a full-screen display with an 18:9 aspect ratio considering the trend nowadays. The Honor 7X will replace the most popular Honor 6X which ruled out the competition with its dual rear-facing cameras and Kirin 655 chipset.Honor 7XThe Honor 7X already had received the 3C certification in China a few days back. The phone is rumoured to offer a 5.5-inch full-screen display and is set to feature a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, although how this translates to a full-screen body remains to be seen. Powering the device might be an octa-core Kirin 670 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB on-board storage. On the software front, it might come pre-installed with Android 7.1 Nougat based EMUI 5.1 user interface.

However, in terms of the camera, the Honor 7X might offer a 12MP dual camera setup just like the recently announced Honor V9. Furthermore, the smartphone is rumored to have a rear-facing fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, speaker grills at the bottom and the similar design as that of the Honor V9. Speculations are that the 32GB storage option if announced could debut for around CNY 1499 (Rs. 14,784), whereas the 64GB variant might be priced for CNY 1799 (Rs. 17,742).

Additionally, at this moment considering these rumoured spec sheet, the Honor 7X most probably will offer a fight to the recently unveiled Mi 5X and the Meizu M6 Note in China. As the Honor 6X was introduced in India earlier this year, we also expect Honor to bring the Honor 7X to the country in the upcoming months. Honor is looking to build its market share outside of China, and its budget phones offer the ideal gateway of doing just that.
