Chinese smartphone maker Huwaei's sub-brand Honor has launched its latest smartphone Honor 7X at an event in China. It comes in 32GB / 64GB / 128GB storage models with option to expand storage up to 256GB. The smartphone comes in three variants- one with 4GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage at 1299 Yuan, another with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage at 1699 Yuan, while the third one has 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage and it costs 1999 Yuan.

The Honor 7X will come in Gold, Aurora Blue and Black colours. Sadly, the global availability of the smartphone has not been disclosed by the company yet. A growing number of cheap Honor phones are starting to make it on their own across European markets and even stateside. The fingerprint scanner sits on the rear while a 3,340mAh battery is packed under the hood. The speaker grilles are also seen at the bottom edge of the handset along with a microUSB charging port sitting in the middle. On the photography front, it houses 16MP+2MP dual rear camera with LED flash. Interestingly, the Honor 7X also comes with 5.93-inch Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) Full View display with an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9 which means much like the recently launched Honor 9i, the Honor 7X is also a near bezel-less phone. It packs an Octa-Core Kirin 659 processor with MaliT830-MP2 GPU and 4GB RAM.

The phone will launch with Android 7.0 Nougat + EMUI 5.1.

The device is also IP67 certified, making it water and dust resistant. The Honor 7X features a duo of 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear cameras, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The secondary sensor on the smartphone is used for measuring the depth-of-field in the image for offering better Bokeh effect. However, it doesn't get dual front cameras but a single 8MP sensor instead along with a LED flash.
