With the winter settling in, India's mid-range smartphone market is set to heat up more as Honor brings its next offering "7X" for the Indian consumers at an "unbeatable price" in December. In a recent chat with IANS, Honor's Global President George Zhao said the phone will be launched at such a price that "it will have no competitor in that segment".
While the exact price is yet to be declared, the phone was earlier launched in China at a starting price of 1,299 yuan (approximately Rs 12,800).
Features of Honor 7X
The device does stand out in appearance with 5.93-inch screen with 2160 X 1080 pixel resolution and almost edge-to-edge display that feels light on the hand. Powered by the Octa-core Kirin 659 processor, the smartphone comes with 18:9 aspect ratio that ensures maximum view for the users. We think, game lovers would love the display a lot as they now get enough real estate to spread their game play.
Adding to it, the 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage perfectly accompany the Kirin engine ensuring no latency or hitches while high-end gaming or multitasking.
Like most other phones in this segment, Honor 7X also offers dual-primary camera with 16MP and 2MP sensors and are equipped with Portrait mode – to capture professional and artistic pictures in single shot. The 8MP selfie camera is also extremely superb. It comes equipped with gesture control function, so you can just show your palm to click selfies.
The smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat OS and has fingerprint sensor on the back sports 3340mAh battery that power your device for one complete day. You will also get ultra power saving mode. The other interesting standards you can see in Honor 7X are ‘Split screen’ that lets you work on two different apps at the same time and ‘Wi-Fi Bridge’ that makes the smartphone behave as a wi-fi router and connects it to four different devices to share the available wi-fi.
Above all, the design of the smartphone is really extraordinary. With classic metal body and perfectly crafted 2.5D edges, Honor 7X looks completely classy and decent.
A recent report by CyberMedia Research (CMR) revealed that the first half of 2017 saw 123 per cent growth in shipment of devices with dual-camera system in India. At the beginning of the year, Huawei (with its Honor 6X variants) Lenovo Phab 2 plus and the LG G6 and V20 devices made their mark in the Indian smartphone market, the report said. What impact Honor 7X will make on the Indian market is yet to be seen, especially in view of the fact that it aims to capture the top slot in the India's smartphone market in three years.
Huawei earlier launched "Honor 9i" with a dual camera set-up in the front as well as the rear, along with bezel-less display.
