Honor 7X cuts bezels in budget Android

Certain games will at least be optimised for that 18:9 screen, though: Honor is working with GameLoft to give 7X users a wider field of view in Modern Combat VS, compared to a standard 16:9 smartphone. From the Apple iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8, and the LG V30, the 18:9 perspective proportion is extremely popular for lead telephones, dispensing with the unattractive fringe around your telephone for amplifying screen land. While Honor provided specs and most of the nitty gritty one would need to know when considering a smartphone purchase, Honor withheld availability info, as well as pricing. Overall though, the 7X looks classy and restrained - with no gaudy finishes to be found anywhere.

Recently, Huawei's sub-brand, Honor has unveiled its new budget-friendly smartphone called, the Huawei Honor 7X in the Chinese market. The placement isn't ideal, either - it's all too easy to muffle it with your hands. Which is not at all bad thing, considering how beautiful the Honor 8 was. All in all the device looks sleek and premium.

Continuing the trend of a cheaper Honor 9i, the 7X carries forward more or less the same internals seen in the recently launched four camera smartphone.

Inside, there's a Kirin 659 processor - which has four performance cores running at 2.36 GHz each, and four more frugal cores at 1.7 GHz - paired with 4GB of RAM. It's hard to understand why they chose to go with Android 7.0 Nougat on the Honor 7X, but that's what you get alongside the EMUI 5.1 skin on top.

The connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G/4G, FM Radio, and USB 2.0.

With no word on price just yet, it's tough to say whether the 7X is a real bargain or not. On the front panel, the Honor 7X has an 8 Megapixel of camera. Do not expect fast charging or anything like that. The company has already sent out media invites for the launch event. The double sensor setup guarantees to take distinctive, top quality photos with great low-light abilities and backings a Portrait mode. But it's more than just a pretty face, boasting a dual lens camera and some seriously slick software features.

Almost a month ago, Honor confirmed to launch a new smartphone on December 5th in London.
