Huawei just introduced Honor 7X, meaning its sub-brand has officially entered the world of 18:9 screens (were not counting this one, which is sold under four different names). It has 1,080 x 2,160px resolution (407ppi) and it sits below a 2.5D glass.

In terms of core hardware, the Honor 7X is powered by a 2.36GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor - which is a custom chip built by Huawei - coupled with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. There is also a MicroSD card slot for further expanding the storage up to 256GB. With the in-house Histen sound algorithm, the device also offers 3D surround sound. Like the nova 2i, it has a 16MP main camera and a secondary 2MP shooter for depth of field effects. For selfies, it has a single 8MP front camera with a host of beautification features. It is equipped with a 3,340mAh non-removable battery that is rated to give up to 21 hours of talk time and lasts up to 22 days on standby. The smartphone runs on Android 7.1 Nougat operating system and has the Huawei Emotion UI 5.1 (EMUI) user interface. Coming to the pricing, the device is priced at 1299 Yuan, 1699 Yuan, and 1999 Yuan for the 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage variants.

Elsewhere, the phone boasts of a full-metal body and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, much like it was in the case of the Honor 6X.

According to Honor, the 7X will be offered in Gold, Blue and Black colours.

The Honor 7X will go on sale in China on October 17 and will start from CNY 1,300 ($200/€170) for the 32GB version.

Given the Honor 6X was released in India, we expect to see Honor 7X to launch in the country as well.
