Huawei’s Honor 7X Sports an 18:9 Display with Minimal Bezels

Earlier this year, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor unveiled its first phone for 2017, the Honor 6X. It was a successor to last year’s 5X and packed dual cameras, a metal body, a fingerprint sensor, and Android Marshmallow for $249. Now, the company has unveiled the new Honor 7X which looks to improve on all the areas where the 6X failed to impress.

For starters, up front sits an 18:9 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) display with little bezels sitting on the top and bottom. Phones with 18:9 screens are a trend in 2017, so it’s nice to see Honor jump on the bandwagon. A familiar metal body surrounds the screen with antenna lines on the sides and a fingerprint sensor on the rear. Additionally, volume keys and a power button sits to the right of the handset.

As for internals, we’re looking at a Kirin 659 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. 32, 64, and 128GB variants (with microSD card expansion) of the 7X are available, while Android 7.1 Nougat with EMUI on top powers the show. Sealed inside the phone sits a 3340mAh battery much like the 6X paired with Huawei’s SuperCharge technology. Unfortunately, you need a microUSB cable to charge this device rather USB-C, but I guess most people won’t mind.

For cameras, Honor is including dual shooters on the back with the main sensor featuring 16 megapixels and the secondary sensor packing 2 megapixels. With this hardware implementation, the 7X allows for natural bokeh photos similar to other smartphones on the market such as the iPhone 8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8.

Honor says the 7X will land in China on October 17th for 1,299 yuan (around $200) with 32GB of storage. For 64GB, it’ll cost 1,699 yuan (about $260). For 128GB, it’ll cost 1,999 yuan (about $305). It’s available in Black, Gold, and Blue.
