Huawei has apparently launched a one-of-a-kind smartphone called Honor 7i. This handset comes with a unique camera that can be flipped back and forth.
A slew of images and video of the recently unveiled Huawei Honor 7i have been making the rounds online, predominantly because of the unusual camera design. The device features a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera unit. However, the same unit can be flipped in order to capture selfies. It is worth noting that, the camera unit can apparently be flipped with a finger, Phone Arena reported.
The Huawei Honor 7i’s camera unit apparently houses a Sony sensor with f/2.0 aperture, complete with sapphire lens protection. Huawei has reportedly assured that the rotation mechanism will not cause any problem, at least for two years.
The Oppo N1 also comes with a similar primary camera unit that rotates to double as a secondary snapper. But then, Oppo’s rotating camera was reportedly criticized for the clunky movement.
Moving on to other Huawei Honor 7i specifications, this mid-range device reportedly comes with a 5.2-inch display, packed with 1080p screen resolution. Under the hood, the handset comes powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 616 processor and 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM.
When it comes to memory specification, the Honor 7i reportedly comes with 16 GB or 32 GB of built-in storage space. The handset also houses a 3,100 mAh battery unit and a unique fingerprint sensor. This sensor has reportedly been housed at the side of the phone, unlike a Samsung or Apple device. By shifting the location of the fingerprint sensor, the device apparently gets high screen-to-body ratio.
The handset will reportedly cost $250 in China. However, the international version could be priced within $300 and $400, Phone Arena reported.
