Honor 7X, which is a successor to Huawei's one of the most popular phones Honor 6X smartphone, has been spotted on GeekBench ahead of its October 11 launch in China. Honor 7X will come in two variants - 3GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage.

And a day before the unveil, we got a hold of the Geekbench listing of the Honor 7X, which gives us a look at the performance characteristics. As per the TENAA listing, the Honor 7X will sport a 5.93-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and 2.5D curved glass on top. On the rear of the device is the 16MP + 2MP dual camera setup as seen on the Honor 9i. The images of the smartphone that have surfaced on TENAA show that it features a rear-mounted fingerprint reader. Now, this setup may be an optimized application of the setup from the 6X. In terms of hardware, the phone houses 4 GB of RAM and is powered by a 1.7 GHz octa-core processor which, according to the report, may be the Kirin 659 chipset from Huawei. The Honor 7X scores 909 points in single-core test and 3159 in multi-core test.

According to the listing, the Honor 7X packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be expandable up to 256GB via a MicroSD card slot. The EMUI is Honor's optimized user interface for their smartphones. While the back has two cameras, the front of the phones is home to a single 8 MP camera for selfies and video calls. The TENAA listing further reveals the smartphone will be available in color options like Black, Gold, and Blue. The base variant is expected to cost 1,799 Yuan which is roughly Rs 17,600, while the higher variant could be priced at 2,099 Yuan which is approximately Rs 20,600. Among other specifications, a USB Type-C port is also rumoured to be there.

This is the second time in the round today that we are reporting about the new device manufactured by Huawei's sub-brand, Honor.
