Huawei's budget smartphone now has a tall display and narrow bezels


Chinese smartphone maker Huwaei's sub-brand Honor has launched its latest smartphone Honor 7X at an event in China.

The Huawei Honor 9i comes with the 5.9 Inch FHD+ IPS FullView Touchscreen Display.

The successor of mid-range smartphone Honor 6X, Honor 7X is here.

Following in the footsteps of the globally-popular Honor 6X, the 7X makes its official domestic debut today, confirming the design and specifications revealed by Tenaa earlier this week.

The smartphone comes with dual SIM functionality and dual rear camera setup just like its predecessor. The smartphone is powered by HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset and 2.36GHz octa-core processor.

Also included with the Honor 7X is a dual SIM card slot, a fingerprint sensor on the back, and a battery that measures in at 3340mAh. With the in-house Histen sound algorithm, the device also offers 3D surround sound. The secondary sensor on this device is used for calculating the depth in the image for offering better Bokeh effect. It has a 3,340mAh which is enough to keep it running for a day and we are not sure if it supports flash charging or not. The smartphone also support Huawei's SuperCharge fast charging technology using the 9V/2A (18W) power adapter. 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.

Huawei Honor 7X runs on Android 7 Nougat with a layer of Emoticon EMUI 5.1 UI. The phone is available in Prestige Gold, Aurora Blue, and Graphite Black colour variants. Price starts at 1299 Yuan (roughly Rs 12,868.80) and goes all the way up to 1699 Yuan (roughly Rs 16,829.41) and 1999 Yuan (roughly Rs 19,801.06) respectively, with market availability from October 17.
