INTRODUCTION

Honor 7X

Today, we have yet another Huawei device for you. It's none other than the Honor 7X. As of recent times, the mid-range price segment for smartphones has been very competitive. Devices are rolling out left and right with almost similar specifications with a few modifications here and there. The Chinese company also decided that it wants a piece of the cake for itself and as a result, the Huawei Honor 7X has come into existence. The device has yet to make an official appearance and is expected to make its debut in the month of October. The 7X is the first of its kind with no other predecessors before it. It is rumored to have the basic mid range package along with a custom UI. Note that the device is set to release at a later date. The specs discussed here are subject to change at the time of the launch.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

The Honor 7X sports a 5.93-inch LTPS IPS LCD display with 16M color support. The device also has a 77% screen-to-body ratio which is quite impressive for a mid-range device. A few sneak peeks at the leaked images turns out some interesting results and a lot is expected of this display. The 7X will also sport a full metal body which, coupled with the huge display may be a bit slippery for first time users, but they will get used to it eventually. On the other hand, the phone feels quite premium, unlike the cheap plastic builds.

The screen also has a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and a pixel density of 407 ppi, which is quite standard for a ~6-inch display. Multi-touch with up to 10 fingers is supported and along with Corning Gorilla Glass protection and EMUI 5.1, people are looking forward to the big reveal.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

Under the hood, the 7X boasts an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor. With four cores clocked at 2.36 GHz and the rest at 1.7 GHz, the phone guarantees superb battery management, whenever tasks are switched between heavier and comparative lighter workloads. No further updates to Android Oreo have been promised, but the smartphone will come with Android Nougat 7.0 in the box. The graphics department is powered by a Mali-T830 MP2 graphics processor which will breeze through almost any game or app you manage to throw at it. In the benchmark tests as well, the 7X showed a whopping core of 74K which is a great score altogether. The device is a beast when it comes to performance, and is a good investment considering the market segment it is targeting.

The Honor 7X will be available in three variants, 32/64/128 GB, all of which has 4GB of RAM which is more than enough to get the job done. Also, the device supports an external SD card with up to 256 GB capacity. But this will cost you SIM slot since the 7X comes with a hybrid sim tray.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

The Honor 7X comes with a dual camera sensor (16 MP and 2 MP) in the rear and an 8 MP shooter at the front. Although both the rear and the front supports 1080p video recording only in, only the former can shoot capture videos at 30fps. The rear camera also has an aperture of 1/2.9”, geo-tagging, face detection, phase detection autofocus, HDR, and panorama.

The smartphone also supports the basic audio codec pack i.e., MP3, WAV, eAAC+. In terms of video codecs, there are MP4, H.265, and FLV. If your preferred choice of codecs isn't present in the lost, you can always download an app that runs your preferred formats.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

In terms of the battery, the company hasn’t been as generous as it had been with the other specs. The Huawei Honor 7X is powered by a measly non-removable 3340 mAh battery. Now it may be the case that the battery is more than enough for a day’s worth of usage, but there are others who offer way much better and powerful batteries.

As said before, the device will have a dual hybrid Nano-sim slot and it will support 4G connections as well.
