The long-awaited “Huawei Honor 7” smartphone was launched in late June, and immediately, the device was made available for preorder in China. The device could very well be the most successful handset ever made by the tech giant Huawei.
According to Huawei via Android Central, the company apparently has received 9 million preorders in one week for its flagship, dubbed "Honor 7." But that figure refers only to China. The device can reportedly be purchased in China for about $322 for the 16 GB variant. The 64 GB model is roughly $400, says Phone Arena.
The handset features a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display and full HD screen resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. This translates to a pixel density of 424 ppi. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core (HiSilicon Kirin 935) processor. The graphics side of things is handled by Mali T628 GPU. The phone runs on Android v5.0 Lollipop OS, along with Emotion v3.1 UI. It has 3 GB of RAM configuration.
The Honor 7 is reportedly encased in aluminum, guaranteeing a premium look, notes Phone Arena. The handset comes equipped with 16 GB or 64 GB of built-in storage capacity. There also is a microSD card slot for expansion up to 128 GB. This device supports dual-SIM and features a 3,100 mAh nonremovable battery.
The Honor 7 sports a 20 MP rear-facing camera with dual-LED flash and an 8 MP front-facing camera. Apart from the standard connectivity options, this Huawei device also supports NFC, GPS and LTE. The smartphone is only 0.33 inch thick and it weighs 5.5 ounces.
Huawei reportedly will be launching the device in Europe later this year. There’s no official information about a U.S. release date.
