The quest to go totally bezel less may take more time it seems but the Huawei Honor 7X is a great addition to the lot. The phone looks as good as it could get with a slim design, unique 18:9 aspect ratio and a dual camera setup.
Announced today, the phone features a bigger 5.93-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. It sports a 2.5D glass and for Honor, it is easy to keep the fingerprint sensor in the back as they have always done.
The device has a 16-megapixel rear camera combined with a 2 megapixel secondary camera to produce DSLR quality photos whereas an equally powerful 8 megapixel front camera should ensure the best selfies possible.
Under the metal shell, the Huawei Honor 7X sports a Kirin 659 processor which is an eight-core chip combined with Mali-T830 MP2 graphics chip. It has 4GB RAM which should be more than adequate to keep multiple apps open at once without any hiccups and provides a hybrid SIM card slot. There’s also a micro SD card slot for expanding the memory when required.
The 7X runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box which is bit of a disappointment but it may receive Oreo upgrade in the near future. It is powered by a 3,340 mAh battery with micro USB port, another old-age hardware port and weighs a t165g.
The Huawei Honor 7X priced at $200 for the 32GB version will go on sale on October 17 in China and should be announced in other regions later. The 64GB edition costs $260 and the 128GB model is priced at $300.
